Blockchain Startup Pitches – Zurich
December 12 @ 18:00 – 21:00
We are pleased and honoured to host the ‘Blockchain Startup Pitches’ event at our meetup.
Decentralization, blockchain, distributed ledgers, and crypto assets are all over the tech news. Meetings and conferences in New York and Hong Kong make us forget easily how decentralized the future of technology is. After all, great innovations can happen anywhere! This event brings together the Zurich blockchain community and those interested in the topic. 2-3 Blockchain startups from Zurich will give short presentations about their vision for the future – followed by drinks and a get-together.
This event is sponsored by BLOCKROCKET (blockrocket.io) – European Blockchain Labs. BLOCKROCKET supports and helps accelerate blockchain startups in launching and growing their business model by providing a platform based on top level co-working facilities in Frankfurt, Munich, and Berlin and connecting them to stakeholders relevant for their startups.
++++ The meetup is free of charge but there is a limited number of seats. Therefore, please RSVP your free spot on Eventbrite. This is important since you can only join the meetup with a valid Eventbrite ticket https://www.eventbrite.de/e/blockchain-startup-pitches-zurich-tickets-67785838267++++
Here is the current line-up of the upcoming speakers (will be updated over time):
(1) David Geisser, Founder and CEO, CollectID (https://collectid.io)
David holds a Master’s degree in Business Innovation from the University of St. Gallen, where he did a one year program in Design Thinking in collaboration with Stanford University. As part of the program, he developed an MVP for a Swiss-based retail bank. After his studies, David joined Boydak Strategy Consulting where he focused on business model innovation and rapid prototyping. During this time, David led several projects and developed various MVPs for different clients.
(2) Eduardo Salazar, CEO, Forctis AG (https://forctis.io)
An economist engaged in macro-econometrics and applied mathematics, but perhaps more of a technologist on a daily basis, for over 30 years Eduardo has followed a career path involving broadly engaging, cross-disciplinary environments. His experience spans both academia and the private sector, as well as work for multilateral organizations such as the World Bank and the IADB. In the years prior to launching Forctis, Eduardo got involved in the world of media and advertising through senior roles at WPP and Dentsu Aegis, later becoming a member of the Advisory Board of MarketShare and Senior Consultant and SE in data investment management and marketing analytics to HCL Technologies in EMEA. Recognized by the industry for his creative approach to addressing key technical and business challenges, since 2016 Eduardo is also on the Jury of the I-COM Data Creativity Awards, joining in 2017 the I-COM Blockchain and Advanced Research Subcommittee. In 2017 he co-founded Forctis with the aim to develop a new, blockchain-inspired platform and token model for asset representation and value exchange.
