As the official Boston Blockchain Week hackathon - the BUIDLBoston team proudly provides entrepreneurs, students and professionals from around Massachusetts to connect, learn, and develop new ways to address problems that will not only impact Boston, but transform the way in which the global community lives using blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT).

We're planning a weekend designed to help entrepreneurs, students and professionals to connect, meet and learn about building real solutions using Blockchain.

A Blockchain Learning Experience

Our goal is to connect and provide participants with a wide range of options, tools and resources to learn and BUIDL useful applications.

Not a developer? Not a problem - different skill-sets are key to realizing this vision.
