Women's Crypto Playground is a Portland-based ecosystem that empowers female entrepreneurs in the crypto economy by providing the resources they need to successfully create and grow businesses using Blockchain technology.
Blockchain technology will transform the way businesses operate and perform by improving inefficiencies & security, reduce costs, innovate and allow for a truly global market. In some parts of the world, women still need a man's permission to open a bank account and run businesses. Bitcoin, which is built on top of Blockchain technology, has allowed these women to start & run their businesses on their own terms in a way they've never been able to do before.
This is a whole new ballgame that is being developed and defined by investors, entrepreneurs, business leaders and world governments that will change the way we do business on a global level. It will impact and transform not only the financial industry but also in the legal industry, supply chains, education, media, cybersecurity, governments just to name a few.
An even smaller percentage of those women are entrepreneurs. Women are more likely to start businesses that solve problems in their communities and help others. They start businesses that are more compassionate, more collaborative. And studies show that on average female-founded companies create over 60% more value for investors than those founded by men. But women still face structural barriers that keep them from starting the businesses that the world needs.
Female entrepreneurs need support, training, a community of like-minded people, resources, effective mentorship and access to financing. The unique voices and perspectives of half of the world's population are needed in the crypto economy to reach its full potential. Women's Crypto Playground will create the space and provide the resources businesses need to thrive.
- Our business incubator will provide the resources women will need to build businesses using blockchain technology such as workspace, community, business validation & support, developer team, mentorship, and legal support.
- Our events platform will plug a playground into big crypto conferences so women have a space to feel included, have fun, learn, and network with other women in the crypto space.
- The content-based educational website will feature modules for developers to learn Python and Solidity which are the two programming languages you need to know to build dapps on the Ethereum platform. Developers can take the courses (think codecademy) where they can be featured on the site. Entrepreneurs can find developers for their blockchain projects and developers get to gain the experience they need. Win/Win.
