Thailand Startups Ed Chance wins Surge Bangkok 2019

Co-organised by UNICEF Innovate, UNICEF Country Office, OmiseGO.

Hosted by KXMADE.

The purpose of the event is to up-skill local developers in Thailand to solve problems relevant to them with decentralized applications and blockchain technology as part of a global series of education events.

SURGE is a UNICEF initiative for an immersive series of events that invites young people to learn new skills, while at the same time exploring where blockchain could play a role in addressing global challenges. It aims to teach young people about blockchain, a technology that is challenging existing models. SURGE offers a variety of events around the world, geared towards both non-technical and technical crowds. More information about the initiative can be found here: https://www.unicef.org/innovation/SURGE

We have engaged local and international partners for mentorship and prizes, such as well-known international and local blockchain projects, including Status, Bounties Network, MakerDAO, Gnosis, MESG and Band Protocol.

The event is free for attendees and has 150 registrants and 20 mentors.
