With the fast-paced development and growth in both the Blockchain and Bitcoin, public interest is exploding. We’ve seen it firsthand with the overwhelming interest in our past events covering Blockchain. These programs highlighted the diverse applications of this groundbreaking technology — from digital currencies to supply chain to digital rights management in music.
We believe that Blockchain will have a major impact across many industries. But, for entrepreneurs looking to identify new opportunities, or professionals trying to vet new partners for outsourcing, find efficiencies in internal processes, or track existential threats, there’s a definite need to build a solid understanding of how Blockchain technology actually works.
This series of workshops offers entrepreneurs, senior managers & executives and the Blockchain-curious--in finance and non-finance--an opportunity to ramp up their foundational knowledge of Blockchain technology and to dive into the various use-cases/applications.
Specifically, you’ll learn:
Extra von NotHaus, MBA, MSF, Co-developer and Co-teacher of the “Fintech: Disrupting the Finance & Insurance Services Industries,” the first graduate-level course on Fintech and Blockchains for the D’Amore-McKim School of Business at Northeastern University.
This workshop has also been developed with Hugo Benedetti, a Ph.D candidate focusing on cryptocurrencies at Boston College and Dr. Steven R. Kursh, Ph.D, CSDP, CLP, Executive Professor of Finance at D’Amore-McKim School of Business at Northeastern University, who co-taught the Fintech course with Mr. von NotHaus.
