As an emerging technology, Blockchain has many potential applications. Identifying best-use applications across various industries, and creating internal buy-in for blockchain technology initiatives, is not yet a clear cut path.

  •     Alan Gordon, Technical Leader at Ford Greenfield Labs, Palo Alto
  •     Conaill Gunn, Digital Customer Initiatives | Products & Innovation, SAP
  •     Joe Inkenbrandt, Co-Founder & CEO, Identify3D

“We’re excited by the opportunities that development and innovation in Blockchain technology will provide across multiple industries,” explained Caroline Winnett, Executive Director of Berkeley SkyDeck.

“We believe blockchain will transform the way people and businesses interact, creating new opportunities in mobility,” said Alan Gordon, Technical Leader at Ford Greenfield Labs, Palo Alto  

Lunch and networking at the event was followed by presentations by three startups, including two current SkyDeck companies – SMBX and BitcoinToken.
