Ubisoft selects blockchain startup for its Entrepreneurs Lab

Aleph.im, a blockchain-based storage and computing startup, has been selected to participate in the sixth season of Ubisoft’s Entrepreneurs Lab, offering further exposure to the emerging blockchain industry.

This season’s focus is “blockchain and positive entertainment.” In addition to Aleph.im, 11 other startups from Canada, Europe and Australia have been selected to participate.

“We are very proud to be welcoming all of these talented startups for the 6th season of the Ubisoft Entrepreneurs Lab,” said Virginie Haas, the chief studios operating officer at Ubisoft.
