Innovation often starts quietly and experiences many highs and lows. How long did it take for the internet’s basic technologies to make the World Wide Web; how long did it take for companies to understand the benefits of this and develop new business models? Blockchain technology took off in 2009 with the cryptocurrency Bitcoin. Initially a technological trend, Blockchain quickly became the talk of the town. But how will the technology further take root?
The University of Applied Sciences Dresden (HTW) and queo ow will be hosting “Blockchain and Industry 4.0 for the middle class – potential and business models” on March 23, 2018. Together with experts from economics and science, we will derive real potential business models from this trend theme. In Fin and InsurTech, companies have already recognized the changes and new challenges. But the middle class is showing increasing demand and need for concrete ideas and strategies.
Prof. Dr. med. Ittner, head of the Blockchain Competence Center Mittweida, will give the keynote speech and faizod will deliver practical examples. In addition, you can expect an exclusive tour of the Industry 4.0 model factory at the HTW Dresden, which is supporting research and testing for IoT solutions in manufacturing.
