TDeFi Bizthon: hackathon set to redefine the future for promising startups

The Future Blockchain Summit 2021, the Middle East and Africa’s longest running and largest dedicated Blockchain platform, is set to offer innovators from across the world the opportunity to showcase ready-made Blockchain-solutions and transform their future. 

From 17th–20th October, the Summit, hosted at Dubai World Trade Centre, will give developers the chance to demonstrate their game-changing ideas at the Blockchain Business Hackathon, hosted by TDeFi – the world’s first accelerator specifically dedicated to decentralised finance and non-fungible token ventures. 

After receiving worldwide applications across tracks including CeFi and DeFi, NFTs, sustainability and gaming, TDeFi’s rigorous screening process has whittled down the applicants to a final 200; these shortlisted entrants are required to submit the ‘MVP’ of their concept by 4th October to qualify for the final round, which will be held onsite at the Future Blockchain Summit.

The live final will be judged by world-renowned technologists, crypto experts and investors who will mentor and guide applicants through online workshops, webinars, and mentorship sessions to fine-tune ideas on topics including business development, technological execution and broader management. 

The finalists can also look forward to Pitch Day, where select entrants will be handed the opportunity to secure potential funding by pitching their product or business idea in-person to over 400 active Blockchain investors. This process will continue beyond the Summit, with one winner due to be crowned at a special closing ceremony on 30th November.

Having successfully incubated over 25 startups, TDeFi empowers new businesses with access to world-class mentors, industry connections, liquidity and guidance in compliance and regulatory best practices, expertise in tech and marketing, and many growth hacking opportunities. 

With TDeFi actively seeking to support and build new projects with the potential to spur further disruption across a wide range of industries, the TDeFi Blockchain Business Hackathon is a vehicle for visionaries to share ideas and take tentative early steps in their growth journey.

Widely regarded as the most disruptive tech development since the internet, Blockchain is driving industry-level transformation, evolving long accepted ways of doing business, creating greater trust in data and information sharing, and revolutionising how we carry out online transactions.

With governments across the region aiding the radical transformation by regularly announcing new initiatives powered by Blockchain solutions, there is tremendous potential for tech innovators and startups to thrive.
