If you are a young women aiming to become an entrepreneur, technologist, regulator, investor or multiplicator, this 18-week mentoring programme – free of charge – might interest you.

The program seeks to empower young women to get into blockchain technology, become leaders in this quickly developing area and build the basis for a successful career path field. Blockchain is here to change the infrastructures of finance, supply chains, trade, etc. First, implementations are conducted by large corporations and financial institutions, but also by NGOs, the UN, and others trying to be part of a changing world. Bitcoin will also stay with us for the next few years and will not fade away. It is time to onboard yourself into the blockchain ecosystem. To this moment, 95% of the people in blockchain are men, meaning that a large share of creativity and talent remains outside.
