About this event

Throughout the month of August in cities across the world, Startup Grind is featuring leading experts on blockchain and cryptocurrency. So get ready for the first #SGBlockchain in Oslo!

Do you feel like all the bitcoin talk is blinding us? With endless price swings and get-rich-quick talk, crypto is stealing the show from those who are building interesting use cases on blockchain. Whether it’s social impact, fintech or logistics, blockchain might be the right technology and the world should hear about it!

Join our next event and find out the answers to you most burning questions:

  • What are the use cases of blockchain beyond cryptocurrencies?
  • Can blockchain play a role in societal challenges, like limit unnecessary online surveillance and human rights abuse?
  • Is blockchain maybe the key to a sustainable energy future?
  • How can we start separating blockchain hype from reality?


  • Stephan Nilsson, founder and president of Norges Bitcoin- og Blockchainforening (Norway Bitcoin and Blockchain Association)
  • Meryn Willetts, co-founder and CMO of Vipicash
  • Wilhelm Myrer, CEO at Empower (https://empower.eco/)
  • Shaun T. Braastad, Special Advisor NTNU Accel (https://ntnuaccel.no/about/)


What better place to talk blockchain than The Kasbah Hub - a laid back coworking space that is also Oslo’s blockchain hub. Find out more about them at https://www.thekasbahhub.com/


Are you curious to find what blockchain is how can it be used? Is your company looking into blockchain opportunities? Or perhaps are you part of a startup already using blockchain and ready to share the experience? Or are you an expert and want to meet likeminded people?

If the answer is “YES” to any of these questions, then we look forward to seeing you! Remember that Startup Grind events are all about educating, inspiring and connecting!

We’ll be announcing the speakers soon so stay tuned!
