Bubbles & Blockchain

Melina Mutambaie

You are invited to join us at “Bubbles and Blockchain” on the 29th of August in Johannesburg – an exclusive all-women event to network, learn and chat about blockchain (and being a woman in the tech space).

BECSA (housed under Blink) is an organisation formed earlier this year to foster collaboration, learning and networking opportunities in the blockchain space, and to act as a convener and community builder for entrepreneurs interested in blockchain in South Africa.

We’ve had a phenomenal response thus far, with a number of capacity events. That said, we recognise a real under-representation of women at our events and in the sector . To that end, we are committed to changing this and encouraging more women to get involved and to ultimately feel empowered to leverage this technology.

The agenda for the evening will include a presentation from ConsenSys to provide insights into blockchain and their work, as well as ‘special contributions’ from one or two key female ‘influencers’ in tech who will share their thoughts on blockchain and lessons learnt as women in tech. The rest of the evening will be dedicated to an open discussion and networking evening with fellow guests.

As part of Women’s month 2018, we were excited to host two all-women blockchain events in Johannesburg (Bubbles and Blockchain – 29 August) and Cape Town (A Champagne Consensus – 20 August), with generous support from ConsenSys.
