The decision to launch a virtual conference series comes after MouseBelt’s years of experience offering remote acceleration, educational, and event services. Most recently, MouseBelt launched a free, virtual, Startup School to provide founders of very early stage projects with the knowledge and skills necessary to prepare for investment or placement in accelerator programs at MouseBelt and beyond. The virtual conference and networking event is designed to connect blockchain talent to infrastructure and industry. The goal is to welcome enthusiasts far and near to share their experiences and education. The team hopes these stories can serve as both entertainment and advice for the students and professionals alike tuning in.
