Event description

Description

Since its inception by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009, blockchain applications have evolved from the niche world of cryptography researchers and coders to the spotlights of skyrocketing cryptocurrencies valuations. The unforeseen rush on Initial Coin Offerings, as a new form of fundraising for startups, has completely reshuffled the traditional financing ecosystem to the point where venture capitalists’ model is being questioned. At a higher level, financial institutions and governments struggle to classify this new asset class. During this session, Alexandre Bussutil will discuss the risks and opportunities for startups to engage in the creation of cryptocurrencies beyond fundraising, and how this global phenomenon is evolving.

Alexandre Bussutil, MBA, is the founder and CEO of B-SCALED, a consulting company that helps tech startups to grow by offering business development and marketing services. He is also startup mentor and visiting professor at IE Business School where he lectures on blockchain technologies. His non-profit activities include being co-author of the book “Comunidad Blockchain” with Blockchain España association. Prior to these activities, Alexandre held positions in technology and project management in energy management companies.

A networking drink will follow this event.
