DeFi Lab


The Aquanow DeFi Lab offers UBC students the opportunity to contribute to the expanding DeFi industry through meaningful collaborations with industry. We are combining the research capacity of UBC with the industry access of Aquanow to provide a platform for UBC students to contribute to the development of blockchain protocols and decentralized applications. Students will benefit from workshops, hackathons, and the opportunity to join start-up projects and companies being incubated in the Aquanow DeFi Lab.
