With new buzzwords appearing every day it is difficult to stay up to date. However, we believe blockchain is one of the most promising technologies of the 21st century and is here to stay.

Since blockchain is a horizontal innovation (it can be adapted by multiple fields and industries e.g. electricity, internet) it will become more important every day, and one should educate oneself and company about this new technology.

Why should you educate yourself?

The Blockchain technology will soon have a profound effect in our lives, in pretty much every sector of our life as we know it: from banking, healthcare, energy and education to entertainment, communication, logistics, democracy, e-commerce, security and much more.

It is especially paramount for individuals in the technology space and for aspiring technology entrepreneurs, everybody should at least have a basic understanding of the technology and its usage.

Already, a large enough number of blockchain startups are being created in a frequent manner. The Business ecosystem that will be built around the topic of blockchain, offers immense opportunities for profit for both entrepreneurs and investors. Smart entrepreneurs utilize the technology to create new products and solve existing problems, while investors can profit from backing Blockchain projects with potential for growth.

Of course, you don’t have to learn about the technology, but it would be a shame to miss a great opportunity or miss the connection within new technologies. There are full-blown degrees from universities, but this shouldn’t be necessary yet. We got your back, don’t you worry, the Frankfurt School has different blockchain programs, on-site and online, but we made one especially for Blockchers participants. If you want to upskill your employees, follow the link at the bottom to the Blockchers application.

Frankfurt School Blockchain

The Frankfurt School Blockchain Center has been chosen by the European Commission to support the startups and SME’s in their education and to deepen their understanding and knowledge.

  1. The Frankfurt School Blockchain Center

Is a think tank and research center which investigates implications of the blockchain technology, crypto assets and distributed ledger technology (DLT) for companies and their business models. Besides the development of prototypes, it serves as a platform for managers, startups, technology and industry experts to share knowledge and best practices. The Blockchain Center also provides new research impulses and develops training for students and executives. It focuses on banking, finance, mobility and, “Industrie 4.0”.

  1. Generate new knowledge

Be part and a pioneer for SME’s in Europe and support the European Commission and us. One of our other goals we are pursuing with the Blockchers project is to create a dialogue between policymakers and stakeholder. We will do an in-depth analysis with all use cases and their application across industries, especially ones that represent the European interest, notably for public services and for services of public interest. We will then develop a roadmap for the development of DLT in Europe. The trends and key insight gained over the next two years will guide recommendations for a regulatory framework for the EU. In particular, assessing the legal needs regarding DLT. Be part and help us facilitate the revolution of DLT across European SME’s and sign up now: https://www.f6s.com/blockchers/apply
