Is anyone on your team located in the Northeast region of the United States*?

*Note: Chain Reaction will accept applications from anywhere in the world, but preference will be given to startups in the Northeast region as proximity will enhance the mentorship opportunities and help strengthen the Boston blockchain ecosystem.  Please note that the CEO must be physically present at the Chain Reaction pitch.
