Event description
Find a team and apply for Block-Sprint, the two week blockchain hackathon organised by UCL CBT, Ripple and Capital Enterprise.

About this Event

What breakthrough can you make in two weeks?

Block-Sprint is a hackathon run over a period of two weeks aimed at fostering rapid innovation in the payments and decentralised finance spaces utilising blockchain and AI. Run by the UCL Centre for Blockchain Technologies in partnership with Ripple and supported by Capital Enterprise, join us to build, create and innovate!

About this Event

The application evening is your final chance to pitch your idea and meet other like minded individuals to join a team if you don't already have one, or find the your final team mates if your team is incomplete. You'll have time to form your team, then discuss your idea over pizza and beer and be ready to apply here before our deadline on Sunday 10th at 18:00.

All teams must be composed of at least 4 people from at least two groups of stakeholders (e.g. individuals from more than one company; individuals from one company plus students; students from different institutions; In short, you cannot all be from the same organisation!). We suggest the following roles for your team members:

Blockchain Developer‎

Software Developer‎

Business Domain Expert‎

Entrepreneur‎

Data Scientist

Teams must submit their application here before 18:00 on Sunday 10th November. Teams who successfully make it through will be invited to pitch to the judges at our Kick Off event on the evening of November 11th where some teams will be selected to proceed through the rest of the hackathon programme; at least one team member must therefore attend this event.
