About the LassondePD, International Blockchain & AI Case Competition
 
Blockchain technology and AI have been lately making headlines with more enterprises exploring the ways they can leverage these two technologies to enable the next revolution.

There has never been a better time to consider the convergence of both the decentralized ledger and the brain of the Internet.

As part of the Toronto Blockchain Week, The BlockchainHub & AIHive at Lassonde School of Engineering and the Creative Destruction Lab at the Rotman School of Management are organizing the international Blockchain-AI case competition.

Toronto has been a hotbed of both technologies with leading projects, researches and startups that have been recognized internationally, this case competition comes to confirm this position.

So if you are creative, visionary, passionate and ambitious individuals or team with an idea combining both technologies, we would like to hear from you.

What we have to offer?
 
1-The BlockchainHub & AIHive will offer free access to Blockchain and AI programs at Lassonde Professional Development - York University.

2-Founders will also get access to free mentorship offered by The BlockchainHub peer-to-peer community-based incubation program (C-Lab) as well as access to free space at the Bergeron Centre of Engineering Excellence and IBM headquarter in Markham.

3-The Creative Destruction Lab will offer advancement to the interview stage of its 10-month Blockchain-AI incubator.

Founders in the BcAI program participate in a two-week intensive bootcamp on Crypto Economics and Market Design conducted by leading economists and have access to up to USD 100,000 in startup capital from leading venture capital firms (Data Collective, Bloomberg Beta, Portag3 Ventures and Globalive Technology).

  • Level of innovation and originality of the idea.
  • Team and founders.
  • Positive impact.
  • Commitment to the two weeks bootcamp and five in-person objective setting meetings in Toronto (International founders are strongly encouraged to relocate to Toronto, Canada in order to take advantage of the Incubator Stream features).
