The world’s largest independent blockchain think-tank, BRI, is launching a new wave of global expansion into Africa, the Middle East, and Korea. BRI Africa will be launched in partnership with Standard Bank Group, BRI Middle East will be launched in partnership with Konnect & Co., and BRI Korea will be launched in partnership with BOSAGORA Foundation. These new BRI divisions will foster innovation and research in their respective regions.
Don Tapscott, Co-founder and Executive Chairman of the BRI, expressed confidence about an economic and technological expansion after the Covid pandemic.
“The world is poised for a post-pandemic, economic expansion and technological renaissance and industrial disruption. Now is the time for us to help companies and governments around the world navigate the turbulent waters ahead.”
Taking a decentralized approach to driving digital transformation, the BRI and its global partners will establish hubs of innovation to research, educate and strategize how blockchain and other emerging technologies can be implemented across business, government and society.
“By collaborating with leading regional partners who share our vision and ambition, we are bringing together diverse voices to steward these technologies toward a better, more sustainable world,” said Dr. Joan Bigham Ed.D., Global Managing Director of the BRI.
According to Noah Lehman, the BRI director of communications, it is expected to launch in July 2021.
