What does it involve?

Corporates and Startups bring their teams (Ideally teams of atleast 1 Developer + 1 Business Domain Expert) to the HACKFEST and develop a bare Minimum product or a Proof of Concept , collaborating with the Blockchain experts from Zero Field Labs. If you like what you build over two days of Hackfest, we can take it further..

We are passionate about creating a Blockchain eco-system in India and around the world. We hosted the first ever Blockchain India Summit in New Delhi on 6 Dec 2016 featuring Inventor of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin.

We host regular Blockchain technical workshops around the globe, in London, Zurich, Geneva, Dubai, Singapore, New Delhi, Mumbai.
If you are a grown up company intrigued about the potential applications of blockchain or a startup experimenting with the technology, or a bystander who believes in the promise of blockchain in the modern economy, come and experiment with our expert developers over 2 days and hack / build together a minimalistic Proof of Concept (POC) or a Minimum Viable Product. If it excites you, either go back and work on building a full-fledged product or outsoure it to the experts! The idea is to give you a real feel for putting together a basic application. Regardless of your current state of readiness.
No matter which industry you belong to and what your blockchain needs may be, Zero Field Labs can help.
Attendees of the Blockchain Storm can book a free one-on-one consultation with Zero Field Labs
