Boston Blockchain Events Week of July 13, 2020

Decentralized finance.

With the growing inroads that DeFi and FinTech are making, some argue that it’s only a matter of time before the entire financial system will “run on the blockchain.” This week you can learn how this is developing in the areas of venture capital and private equity. Later in the week, you can watch exciting local FinTech and blockchain product demos. Then, get ready for the following week to learn about IBM’s Rapid Supplier Connect, a platform for tracking trusted healthcare suppliers using blockchain technology.

If you aren’t already, please help support blockchain development in Boston by becoming a member of the Boston Blockchain Association today. All you have to do is apply to become a member (takes just a minute of your time) to be sure you’ll stay informed on all Boston area blockchain events. Digital blockchain technology is the future of many global industries. Get involved in the future!

How Can the Blockchain Disrupt Venture Capital/Private Equity?

Tuesday, July 14, 2020, 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM EDT

It is only a matter of time until much of the financial industry will “run on the blockchain.” Or as the Harvard Business Review put it: “the blockchain will do to the financial system what the Internet did to media.” The talk is open to all Harvard students and scholars, and anyone interested in blockchain, cryptocurrency, or the future of the FinTech industry. The panelist talk will focus on the key policy issues related to blockchain and Venture Capital/Private Equity. We are honor to invite professional speaker, Kendrick Nguyen, CEO of Republic, former General Counsel of AngelList, to discuss the impact of blockchain on the VC/PE world and the blueprint that governments are designing for this area.

We’ll explain why getting our health care supply chain in order is so essential, with a demonstration of how blockchain is helping. This event is required viewing for anyone in healthcare, government, or business who’s looking to real-world Coronavirus solutions.
