The LBS Blockchain Society is a student and professional society at the London Business School set up in 2021 to empower the next generation of LBS business leaders to pursue the fast-growing opportunities in Web3. We focus on:
- Education: Educating our peers on blockchain technology and new protocols in development in the ecosystem
- Career Opportunities: Helping students place into roles in Web3 and network within the wider Web3 community
- Entrepreneurship: Leveraging the entrepreneurial talent at LBS to help originate capital and bring ventures to market
- Governance: Providing hands on learning experiences, by participating as delegates in leading DAOs and incubating our own experiments in on-chain governance
The LBS Blockchain Society is the fastest growing and most active society in the LBS community despite being the youngest, having gained over 700+ LBS Telegram members in the last 8 months and organising numerous events over the past year since our inception. This included hosting our first inaugural Blockchain Conference, where we hosted 250+ students across 8 events with 20 speakers and panelists. We are in the process of planning a second conference for January 2023.
Delegate Statement (why you should delegate to us)
LBS is home to the global business leaders of tomorrow. Consistently ranked among the top 5 business schools globally, LBS students come from and place amongst the top firms around the world. LBS students are experts in diverse subject matters, ranging from financial markets, to organisational theory, to data science. Given the diversity of cultural and professional backgrounds amongst the student cohort, LBS students are extremely entrepreneurial by nature. London Business School entrepreneurs have raised $4B of funding in 2021, while our alumni have founded over 560 companies so far, including unicorns such as HelloFresh, Feedzai, Wayflyer, Lonely Planet, and many more.
We have been delegates to MakerDAO since July 2022 through the a16z Token Delegate Programme, and have acquired invaluable expertise that will assist with our decision-making for Aave. We always commit to voting independently and impartially, and to open source our rationale through frequent updates to this thread, which will act to anchor our thinking and make ourselves accountable to the wider Aave community.
Given our co-location with Aave in London and the potential for partnerships beyond the governance programme, we see a natural synergy here for the society to be further involved with the activities of the protocol. As stated above, one of our objectives is to act as a facilitator in connecting the talent in our community to industry. We do so by organising large-scale events, workshops, networking sessions and more, as well as by directly helping to place students into roles in industry. Given the growing need for talent in Web3, we see significant scope for synergies between the organisational needs of Aave and the funnel of talent which our society can provide.
As delegates, we commit to dedicating our time and resources to help accelerate Aave’s development and growth. We will leverage our global network, business knowledge, and entrepreneurial mindset, to drive value for Aave token holders, and in doing so, seek to have a profound impact on the way the world does business within Web3.
Conflicts of Interest
The LBS Blockchain Society currently does not have any material conflicts of interest. As a society we do not hold any other cryptocurrencies nor do we currently take in membership fees. We agree to keep the Aave society updated should any conflicts of interest arise.
Waiver of Liability
By delegating to LBS Blockchain, you acknowledge and agree that LBS Blockchain will participate on a best efforts basis and will not be liable for any form of damages related to participation in the Aave Protocol or this DAO.
