The first week of April was an exciting one for the FLAN team. Our co-founders, Majdy and Ghassan, joined the inspiring ecosystem of Celo in Barcelona to celebrate blockchain innovation at the first Celo Connect event. Five days, an exciting agenda, insightful panels, and endless opportunities to connect with great minds and discuss blockchain and decentralization, two things we surely appreciate discussing at FLAN! 

Celo’s “prosperity for all” vision was at the heart of the Celo Connect event. Different start-ups from all around the world and many exciting projects all came together within the Celo ecosystem to share in Celo's the vision of building a financial system that generates prosperity for everyone. As a decentralized freelance platform on Celo, we felt right at home. Celo’s vision is an extension of what we aim to achieve at FLAN through empowering the freelance community to explore the true potential of blockchain technology and how it can be our answer to building the sustainable gig economy of the future. 

The event marked an important step towards familiarizing the Celo ecosystem with FLAN and shed light on major areas of cooperation and integration. . It also presented the opportunity for our co-founders to meet with prospective partners and lay foundations for exciting collaborations to come.

The Barcelona Blockchain week could not have been filled with more exciting, eye-opening, and inspiring individuals, or a more welcoming community. FLAN is excited to be forging a path alongside these projects and to belong to a like-minded community within the Celo ecosystem working towards solutions that benefit humanity.
