NYC BigApps Blockchain is an open innovation challenge sponsored by NYCEDC that asks teams to design meaningful blockchain solutions that will improve the efficiency, security, and transparency of public sector services in New York City.
Open in June 2019, the Call for Proposals invites startups, developers, and product designers from all industries to submit ideas for blockchain solutions under one of three Challenge areas listed below.
A panel of judges will select 10 finalists, who will have the opportunity to workshop and refine their proposals with mentors and government stakeholders. Finalists will then present their ideas to the general public at BigApps Demo Day in the fall of 2019. Three Grand Prize winners selected at Demo Day will receive cash awards, marketing and promotion, and opportunities to further incubate their solutions in New York City.
