How will you react to this revolution? Exploit this technology? Participate in our 2-day Blockchain/Cryptocurrency Wargame and Business Development Workshop to develop and test innovative ideas and opportunities for your company.
December 4-5, 2017 in Denver, CO
January 8-9, 2018 in New York, NY
January 25-26, 2018 in Palo Alto, CA
Our workshop sessions let you directly question experts like Charlie Shrem who are familiar with your business ideas from the wargame sessions. In small group discussion with blockchain technology and marketing experts you’ll get specific recommendations to improve your plans.
As a Harvard Business Review article explained, cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and blockchain technology are “unleashing an explosion of creative and entrepreneurial activity” that will disrupt financial services, destroying some firms while new services and firms will create immense new wealth.
Blockchain will not just revolutionize the financial system, but impact many industries, since the global distributed ledger enables the secure transfer of anything of value — money, titles, deeds, music, data, intellectual property, and even votes. New markets will evolve with buyers and sellers able to contract more easily. Supply chains and many aspects of business face massive disruption.
As the Harvard Business Review authors emphasized, “preparing for these changes means investing in research and experimentation. Those who do so will be well placed to thrive in the new, emerging financial system.”
