About Us

Blockchainers Community Interest Company (CIC) is a non-profit organisation with vision to build a community driven in creating positive impacts through blockchain technology.


Our mission is to create, expand, enhance and integrate various sub-communities supporting the development and adoption of blockchain technology. 


Founded in November 2017, Blockchainers CIC is now a University of Manchester start-up supported by UMIP’s Innovation Optimiser. UMIP is a division of UMI3 Ltd, the University’s Innovation Company.


With starting sub-communities including block Event and block Research, our communities consist of students, staff members, academics, researchers, entrepreneurs, developers and professionals from other industries interested in the technology of blockchain.
