About this Event

Polychain Capital is hosting an exclusive DeFi-themed event. This is an invite-only event with a limited RSVP waiting list. The event will consist of three lightning talks followed by a Q&A with the speakers.

We’ve curated this event to give interested professionals a chance to learn more about DeFi. Our aim is to discuss the challenges that some of the top companies in the industry are facing, how they’re addressing them, and how you can get involved.

What is DeFi? - A nascent industry segment of projects and companies working to decentralize traditional financial products in the interest of accessibility and censorship resistance.

Lastly, it's a great chance to network with a select group of engineering talent from the Polychain portfolio. This event is designed to foster technical discussions.
