Blockchain technology has been hailed as the new internet 2.0 that will usher a fourth industrial age, replace all other currency, eradicate poverty, provide portable and immutable digital identity, transfer medical records securely and easily, settle financial transactions immediately, disrupt supply chain management, replace lawyers,  and much more. Blockchain also has been accused to be the greatest scam in history, a fad, a simple rebranding of old technology, and a slow and unscalable technology. Whether you are a skeptic or an enthusiast of blockchain technology, this forum will challenge your views on this emerging technology. The event will include ample time for questions and discussions with the audience. Access online here

Our Trailblazers series will explore the journeys of true innovators in the social impact space. Back to Our Roots: Purpose Driven Approaches for Next Gen Leaders "Organic food, natural food, was the first green industry in the United States, and we’ve kind of forgotten that because we take it for granted now. One reason we take it for granted is because it’s everywhere now. And, it’s everywhere now in no small measure because of Walter Robb." — Ken Cook, President Environmental Working Group How does one live and work with purpose? How does real social change happen? How can businesses effect social change? Join Walter Robb, former Co-CEO of Whole Foods, in an exploration of these questions and more in the Social Innovation Initiative's first "Trailblazers in Impact" evening!

Be a part of the premier LGBTQA-themed Startup Weekend!

Your community is here to help you. Regardless of your professional background — sign up now for Startup Weekend HackOut in Austin, TX!

The 1st first-ever LGBTQA-themed Startup Weekend was created in 2017! We had over 80+ participants from all around the globe from Europe to South America. We were able to reward travel scholarship for a number of participants. During our 2018 event, we grew to over 100 participants from even more far flung places like South Africa and Australia.

The purpose of this event is to inspire potential entrepreneurs in the LGBTQA community to learn the ropes of validating an idea for a startup or lifestyle business and turn that idea into a business venture.

In just 54 hours, you will experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressure that make up life at a startup. As you learn how to create a real company, you'll meet the very best mentors, investors, co-founders, and sponsors who are ready to help you get started.

If you can't commit to the whole weekend, you can check out the presentation/demo on Sunday or volunteer.

Startup Weekend HackOut is being organized in partnership with Techstars, which helps entrepreneurs raise startup funding and gain critical insight to help launch their businesses, StartOut, the national nonprofit supporting LGBTQIA entrepreneurs, and Lesbians Who Tech, a global community of 25,000+ queer women and gender nonconforming people in tech (and our allies) in over 37 cities around the world.
