Accelerate Okanagan — IG Takeover, Startup Drinks

We’re big fans of supporting both the local and global tech community, especially when it comes to educating and making crypto more accessible.

This week we’ve been asked to “takeover” a tech accelerator’s instagram to give people a behind-the-scenes look at the inner-workings of BlockCAT. If you’ve ever wanted to catch a sneak peek of our team, workplace, office culture or cool products we’re building, now is your chance!

The takeover kicks off at 10:30 am PST. Click here to follow @OKGNtech to see an entire series of Instagram Stories filmed exclusively by the BlockCAT team. 📱

We’ll also be hosting a community tech event called Startup Drinks at BlockCAT HQ. This gives us a chance to connect with some of the biggest tech names in the region, while also giving us a platform to talk about our new and upcoming smart contracts. More updates to share on this soon!

That’s it for this week! If you have any questions, be sure to join our Discord channel, tweet to us on Twitter or chime in on the /r/BlockCAT subreddit!
