Convergence is an private event, hosted by Outlier Ventures, to bring together 25 leading high-tech pioneers from startups around the world to make sparks fly.

We believe blockchain technologies, including distributed ledgers & smart contracts, are the mega-trend that allows all other macro-trends to both scale securely, converge and combine.

They represent the next phase of The Web, Web 3.0 or ‘The Trust Web’, and are going to transform how technologies interact with one another and the World around them.
