The trusted cross-sector network of decision-makers and pioneers to leverage the potential of blockchain technology.

Are you interested in creating new business value enabled by blockchain technology?

Blockchain technology and Web3 will have a fundamental impact on many sectors and business models. The change is already happening in financial services and the creator economy via digital assets in different forms. But we expect it to affect all verticals over the next decade.

Blockchain adoption was initially driven by start-ups, retail users, speculation and hype. It is now gradually expanding to more serious business use cases and wider adoption. Established corporates are now taking steps to understand and leverage this technology and build innovative products and services on top. They create innovation centers to catch-up with the latest development and tap into new territory.

Our Blockchain:Circle is dedicated to bring all these pioneers, leaders and decision-makers together – bridging the gap between successful start-ups, DAOs and innovating corporates.

Together with our members and speakers, we take a cross-sector, fact-based, and business-focused approach at understanding the current capabilities of blockchain technology.

And – even more important – its limitations and road blockers. We are learning from real-life practitioners who can tell from their deep practical experience in several dimensions like business, technology, regulation, and impact on society.
Our virtual and on-site sessions provide deep insights and stimulating discussions with a special focus on financial use cases, decentralized identities and new approaches to manage and prove ownership and provenance.

Practical examples demonstrate

  • how businesses build up new ecosystems and business relationships across verticals,
  • how they reduce costs and processing time, and
  • how they increase speed and offer added value to their customers.

Our attendees benefit from these insights by starting experiments and MVPs in the most promising directions and learning how to avoid common pitfalls.
