June 17 @ 14:00 - 15:30
17 June at 14:00 PM CEST
DLTs & Blockchain are as powerful as they are mysterious: knowledge of the technology often fails to reach interested parties, and its applications are largely unexplored. Join us on June 17th at 14:00 CEST with Edward Vali – General Partner at Accelerate Venture Partners – and Soulla Louca – Professor and Director of the Blockchain Initiative at the University of Nicosia – who will offer key insights about DLTs education and investing, and on how investors, innovators and businesses can achieve relevant know-how to tackle opportunities in the field. The webinar is organised as part of the DLT4All project.
