London Blockchain Labs (LBL) is the EU's largest universities hub of blockchain talent. We are a non-profit organisation based at London Business School, UCL, LSE, and Imperial College. 

Our aim is to increase blockchain adoption to ensure a healthy and productive integration in our society and economy, and we believe that the main roadblock is a lack of education both on the business side (lack of talent) and on the end-user side (lack of awareness or psychological barriers).

We have been working in the blockchain space since 2016, raising awareness of this technology, providing free education to thousands of enthusiasts, and working with businesses and institutions on R&D and education projects.
