Exploring and Promoting Blockchain and Web3 Innovations
Blockchain Innov, the renowned association, recently celebrated its first anniversary and held its inaugural general assembly on April 12th. This momentous occasion brought members together to discuss the association’s mission, reflect on the past year’s achievements, outline the roadmap for 2023-2024, and facilitate democratic processes for governance renewal.
The board of directors convened on June 14th to validate the minutes of the general assembly, which are now available on the Blockchain Innov Association’s platform.
A Year Full of Actions
Over the past year, Blockchain Innov has organized around thirty events in Cannes, as well as in Avignon, Nice, Marseille, Montpellier, and Paris. These events took various formats, including after-work gatherings that fostered connections among a diverse community of blockchain and Web3 enthusiasts. Additionally, there were After@Web3 and Atelier@Web3 sessions aimed at raising awareness through conferences and showcasing projects from the Blockchain Innov community. Furthermore, the association conducted conferences and workshops in partnership with other events, reaching a broader audience and introducing them to the world of blockchain and Web3. Examples of these events include the Naturalité Day of the Global Competitiveness Cluster, the “Digital and Sustainability” week at the University of Côte d’Azur, and the International Festival of Artificial Intelligence. Digital formats such as newsletters and web broadcasts were also employed to engage the community.
As a driving force behind the International Blockchain Innov Alliance, Blockchain Innov has collaborated with innovation actors in Africa (Africa Fintech Forum), Belgium (Walchain), Canada (Digihub), and globally (myGlobalVillage). This alliance has resulted in two major events: the International Blockchain Innov Week, held from February 3rd to 10th, 2023, and a joint effort in celebration of International Francophonie Day on March 20th, 2023. These events facilitated exchanges between blockchain and Web3 professionals across three continents. They also garnered support from David Lisnard, Mayor of Cannes, President of the Cannes Lérins Agglomeration Community, and President of the Association of French Mayors, who championed the cause of blockchain, Web3, and Blockchain Innov.
