On 6th-7th March, Brinc participated in the 11th annual Global Blockchain Congress (GBC) in Dubai, which played host to some of the most influential figures in the world of Web3.
At the congress, Karim Banna — Brinc’s Web3 Program Manager (MENA) spoke on a panel about Dubai’s Metaverse Strategy, deliberating on the metaverse’s potential to revolutionize a wide range of industries in ways that few of us would have ever considered. “Web3 is poised to innovate the world of health tech beyond recognition, with the metaverse offering up new possibilities in educating those who save lives, to diagnosing more accurately and efficiently, and everything in between.” said Banna.
Eight Brinc portfolio companies flew in to participate, including Aptero, Foundry Six, Immuse, Kola Labs, Lost Club Toys, MetaGameHub DAO, Niftyz, and Virtual Arts. Industry heavyweight Peter Knez, Chairman of the Venom Foundation, also attended and shared insight on how blockchain will revolutionize the tech industry.
The GBC was filled with knowledgeable discussions, from the mass adoption of blockchain and the future of gaming, to the difficulties that have arisen in the bear market and opportunities that are opening up in the Gulf Cooperation Council, strengthening its position as a Web3 hub.
Following GBC, Brinc co-hosted an investor-focused session in partnership with Cypher Capital, a prominent investment firm with a Web3 focus, at the state-of-the-art Cypher Capital Hub. The invitation-only event allowed eight of Brinc’s Web3 accelerator graduates to showcase and discuss their projects and ideas with prospective investors. It was a great opportunity for businesses to network and connect.
“Cypher Capital’s Dubai hub exemplifies the collaborative essence of the Web3 and crypto industry,” said Banna, “We persist in empowering game-changing founders by providing an unparalleled platform for their growth and success.”
