Beschreibung des Events


On February 21, 2019, the Frankfurt School Blockchain Center and AZHOS AG jointly organize a half-day event to explore new business models at the intersection of the big two topics supply-chain management and finance made possible by blockchain. Together with thought leaders from the areas of finance, chemical industry, Internet of Things and blockchain, we will explore which business models will be enabled by distributed ledger technology and blockchain in specific.

The focus will be laid on the one hand on practical real-world examples within the chemical industry. On the other hand, a focus will be laid on the implications of these new technologies on the financial ecosystem. The highly efficient blockchain platforms will play a crucial role in improving industry interoperability with new business models, across verticals. The goal is to sensitize participants of the event for industry-connecting use-cases made possible by blockchain technology.

To design the future of your business with blockchain, you need to think beyond proof of concept, wherein the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence powered by sensor, software and services provides end-to-end solutions, across the spectrum of physical, digital and virtual assets.

Blockchain technology has the potential to fundamentally alter the way business processes are conducted across a multitude of industries around the globe. It is prone to challenge the status quo and enable new business models. Since both fields, chemical industry and finance are thoroughly present in our daily lives, it is necessary to understand how the blockchain technology will change these sectors, the intersection of them, and thus improving our daily lives. Implications of this technology are essential not just for decision-makers in chemical industry and in the financial sector, but for everyone.

Since no prior knowledge is required we invite everyone to explore the use-cases and attend the event.

We think the event is best suited for:

  • Employees and decision makers from the financial sector interested in blockchain technology

  • Employees and decision makers from the chemical industry sector interested in blockchain technology

  • Corporates interested in innovation and blockchain

  • Startup founders and startup enthusiasts interested in blockchain technology

  • Consultants and lawyers interested in the implications of blockchain

  • Developers and architects from Internet of Things companies
