“We’re thrilled to invite attendees to the next evolution of Edge Of events to hear from creators and innovators across every major industry using Web3 to build the future,” said Zach Sekar, Co-Founder of Outer Edge LA. “Outer Edge seeks to facilitate new, disruptive dialogues and projects that will establish never before done ways to connect with consumers and shape tomorrow’s culture. The decentralized web, artificial intelligence, extended reality and other advances at the outer edge of what’s possible have exposed an opportunity to co-create an inspiring and equitable future.”
The Outer Edge Land Grant experience gives community-powered projects the opportunity to host impactful experiences and intimate talks within the convention, without the expense of a traditional conference sponsorship. Community partners will be granted a space for their activations, placement as a co-creator on the Outer Edge website and materials and promotional support for external events. The organizers, a Web3 startup themselves, are committed to providing a welcoming opportunity for all communities, startups, and creators to collide, share their creations, and build a larger and stronger community.
To support and celebrate the builders and entrepreneurs who drive the space forward, this event will also feature a two-day hackathon and a startup-investor pitch experience.
To learn more about the experience, the organizers will be hosting a live Twitter Spaces on Thursday, January 26 at 4:30pm PST. Details can be found on Twitter here.
