Telos will sponsor Hack Boston to provide workshops, mentoring and prize money at the first crypto hackathon to ever happen on an Ivy League campus. Hack Boston will be held at the world-renowned Harvard University at their Cambridge campus on September 23rd to the 25th. The event welcomes over 300 students from Harvard, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and other Ivy League colleges. The opportunity has been made possible by partnering with the web3 learning app EasyA, which will run the prestigious event with the support of the Harvard and MIT blockchain clubs.
Telos invites participants to join us in our aim to create a future where web3 can thrive and enhance the lives of millions of people worldwide. Since its inception, Telos has been devoted to supporting a web3 future — everything from DeFi to real-world initiatives.
We have partnered and offered support for dApps centered around evolving financial markets, boosting production in developing economies, supply chain management, carbon emission reduction, health and fitness, user privacy, NFTs and many more. We will continue to provide the infrastructure for perpetual growth in these areas and beyond.
Harvard University and MIT are home to some of the most gifted scholars worldwide. These prestigious learning institutions are a birthplace for ideas and technology that reshape entire industries and, subsequently, the lives of the global population. Both provide their students with the knowledge, tools, and preparation to become generational leaders — case in point, Harvard and MIT alumni have founded or co-founded many fortune 500 and 1000 companies.
Mark Zuckerberg (Harvard, Facebook), Bill Gates (Harvard, Microsoft), Henry Morgan (Harvard, JP Morgan), Robert Noyce (MIT, Intel), Fred Koch (MIT, Koch Industries), and Bill Hewlett (MIT, Hewlett-Packard) are among others on this impressive list. With this proven track record, Telos is thrilled to share an intimate learning environment with the up-and-coming generational leaders of web3 development.
Telos Foundation CEO Justin Giudici and Telos Core Developer Jesse Schulman will attend the Hack Boston event to host an essential workshop for students in attendance from Harvard, MIT, and other Ivy League colleges.
The workshop, entitled “ Get Started: Build Faster, Fairer DeFi on Telos,” will provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of the Telos ecosystem and the unsurpassed advantages it offers developers and users of the network. It is a chance to introduce promising Web3 builders to Telos’ features, such as our ESG compliance, lightning-fast transaction speeds, fixed gas prices, superior scalability, fair governance model, technical support for devs, and further industry-leading developments in our pipeline.
Justin and Jesse will also mentor hacker teams, and, rumor has it, the duo will have plenty of free Telos merch and swag for attendees.
