Blockchain Technology Research Innovations Corporation (BTRIC) is a 501(c)(3) economic development organization that is devoted to fostering emerging technologies, through business incubation and other initiatives, that decentralize the control structures that have entrenched global systems for centuries. Through our business incubation program, we identify, foster, research and develop projects that leverage emerging technologies to create a better world. We infuse these projects with best-practices guidance and work with all stakeholders – innovators, engineers, advisors, marketers, partner organizations, and donors – to bring next-generation, “Internet 3.0”, projects to life. When a project has completed the incubation process, it separates from BTRIC and becomes an independent business, ready for investment, growth, and prepared to shatter paradigms. Our other initiatives focus on promoting diversity in projects, standardizing regulatory compliance, and facilitating the development of standards that promote the common good of all projects in our space. Our work is released under open licenses, and we invite participation from anyone interested in governance or any other aspect of our work. Our finances, policies, procedures, and activities are fully transparent. Contributions to BTRIC – monetary, asset, and in-kind – may be tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. Consult with a qualified tax advisor for more information.
