With a pitch contest and a dedicated mobile app to link people, projects and investors, Next Block Expo’s ambition is to become the most promising networking opportunity for the European blockchain community in 2022.
The first edition of the Next Block Expo event with a few thousand attendees will be held at the Berlin Station venue on November 23-24, 2022, linking the most influential people and projects in the Web 3.0 space.
With presentations and speeches at the main stage, roundtables, workshops and hackathon, NBX is an excellent opportunity for startups and already established blockchain companies to discuss current challenges and new opportunities.
Tom Kopera, co-founder of Next Block Expo, said,
“We know the value of networking and collaboration in blockchain. Our goal is to facilitate the process and create [a] friendly space and innovative tools for everyone to connect, discuss and share ideas, as well as help startups to raise capital and investors to find golden opportunities.”
All Next Block Expo attendees will get access to a smart-networking app dedicated to the event where they can do the following.
- Find a list of attendees that fit their needs based on match-making algorithm
- Chat and schedule one-on-one meetings with other conference participants
- Find key information about the event, speakers and startups
- Create own personal agenda for the conference by picking relevant sessions
- Learn about promos, special offers and side events prepared by companies attending NBX and partners
Through the app, event partners at the Next Block Expo can create their project-dedicated landing page and present themselves to all participants.
One of the unique events planned to link investors looking for opportunities with startups seeking financing is the pitch contest. It is designed for early stage Web 3.0 projects to present the idea and solution they are building to a group of specialists.
Web 3.0 founders will be able to quickly pitch their idea to a group of angel investors, venture capital firms, software houses and industry veterans. At the end of the pitch contest, the three best projects will be revealed by the jury.
“This is a unique opportunity for founders to pitch their ideas, gather worthy feedback, make valuable connections and acquire funding for their future ventures.”
To participate in the pitch competition, startup founders have to register via the Next Block Expo dedicated website. Submission of projects will be possible in three categories blockchain gaming and metaverse/NFTs. Up to 20 projects will be selected and given an opportunity to present at the Berlin event.
Next Block Expo is an extension of the previous event series held under the name ‘Cryptocurrency World Expo’ over the last six years. The 2022 edition will be held on a scale of a few thousand attendees, 80 speakers and more than 100 sponsors, exhibitors and partners.
Berlin Station venue, where the event will be held, will offer six content themes for attendees related to DeFi, blockchain gaming and GameFi, scaling and infrastructure, Web 3.0 discovery and fundraising and investing.
