CryptoChicks has started as a meetup group in Toronto organized by two women to help other women to navigate through Blockchain technology.
In a short period of time small meetup group grew into an international self-financed non-profit organization CryptoChicks with the hackathon events and chapters in Canada, USA, Bahamas, Pakistan, Switzerland, Dubai. CryptoChicks educated thousands of women and youth all over the world in just short 2 years. Hundreds of those women found new jobs in blockchain and AI space. Many women started their own businesses. To help them, CryptoChicks created mentorship programs, such as CryptoChicks Hatchery.
CryptoChicks are proud to be nominated for Blockchain Company of the Year Award at the Canadian FinTech and AI Awards 2018 and 2019 and Diversity Initiative of the Year at the inaugural Women in IT Awards Canada in 2019.
