New Technologies are emerging that will disrupt Businesses and how they work with both Vendors and Customers. Blockchain, known to some in the financial services industries, is expected to transform business relationships across all industries, impacting, changing and allowing for new methods of innovation. Expected to be as transformative as the internet was for communication, Blockchain will change the way businesses work globally. Why is knowing about BlockChain important for Board Directors? Directors need to understand and consider applications of the disruptive nature of blockchain technology, and boards need to be sure that their Companies (Technology, Life Sciences, Industrial, Healthcare, Financial Services, Retail and many others) all are incorporating it into its strategic thinking. Our panelists are Mary Wieck, General Manager, IBM Blockchain, and Jamie Goldstein, Founder of Pillar Companies. Jack Klinck, Managing Partner of Hyperplane.VC will moderate the conversation.
