Reflective Venture Teams With Harvard Undergraduate Blockchain Group To Enhance Blockchain Education

Jul 12, 2018

Reflective Venture Teams With Harvard Undergraduate Blockchain Group To Enhance Blockchain Education Blockchain venture fund Reflective Venture Partners has teamed with the Harvard Undergraduate Blockchain Group ( HUBG ) to enhance education in blockchain technology. Reflective Venture Partners is a privately owned and managed venture firm that originates from an ongoing strategic partnership with RChain Cooperative , a new blockchain platform rooted in a formal model of concurrent and decentralized computation. The firm incubates, funds, and designs strategic financing and token capitalization events for innovative blockchain specific dApps and complementary technologies and tools that have strong growth potential and will provide a meaningful contribution to the RChain blockchain ecosystem. HUBG is the sole undergraduate blockchain group at Harvard University. Its members aim not only to improve the understanding of blockchain technology, cryptocurrency, and investment through educational curriculum and conferences, but also to identify new applications through strategic industry partnerships and projects. The group engages with organizations and open-source communities to identify opportunities for industry application. Under the partnership, HUBG will receive direct access to RChain, which will enable the group to meet one of its primary objectives: creating a foundational online course on blockchain technology and cryptocurrency for Harvard students and non-students alike. HUBG said they selected RChain blockchain platform because of its mathematical focus that was built on Rho-calculus principles. “In the blockchain space, there is just too much hype and speculation. We want to bring an academic perspective to educate students and dig deeper,” said Arkam Javed, Co-Founder and Co-VP of HUBG. “RChain is tackling blockchain from a more academic angle and it’s much needed. The more analysis that’s available from an academic perspective, the more focus that’s put on technical fundamentals.” In addition to the development of blockchain course curriculum, the partnership will enable HUBG to host conferences, events, and in-depth discussions on blockchain technology and protocols in the coming months. HUBG is also planning to create a student-managed cryptocurrency investment fund and a peer-reviewed research journal. “We wanted to partner with Harvard University because they were looking to focus on the mathematics and science of blockchain and less about the fluff and buzz that comes with it today,” said Shahan Khoshafian, Senior Associate at Reflective Venture Partners. “From an educational perspective, RChain’s unique composition is suited quite well for higher education curriculum.” Khoshafian added that these academic partnerships highlight the talent in universities across the board and this exposure to blockchain is going to be critical to its future success of becoming more widely adopted. “The bigger picture is connecting great talent with great technology, and then giving everybody access to information we can all use together,” Khoshafian said.
