The Business Potential of Blockchain

This half-day course exposes participants to blockchains and smart contracts for the first time.
We take a look “under the hood”, get a very fundamental understanding of what blockchains and smart contracts really are and why they are such powerful tools. Attendees will get the chance to interact with a smart contract in a playful fashion.
We will then look in more detail at existing business models and assess why they have the potential to disrupt major established industries. We will wrap up with success stories and an overview of challenges and limitations.

Who is this course for?

Anyone who wants to dive into blockchain technology and smart contracts. This includes business analysts, executives, investors, startups and other curious minds.


No blockchain knowledge and no programming or other technical skills required.
