Anthony is also the founder and CEO of Decentral (http://decentral.ca), a Toronto-based innovation hub and software development company focused on decentralized technologies, and Jaxx (https://jaxx.io), a digital asset wallet that empowers millions of people to control their digital lives. These two organizations recently partnered with the Founder Institute to launch the "Blockchain Founder Syndicate" (https://fi.co/join/blockchain), an initiative to help budding entrepreneurs launch 20 promising companies that leverage blockchain by 2019. On this webinar we will discuss: - What's true about blockchain, and what is hype - The different types of businesses and societal problems blockchain can help address - How entrepreneurs can leverage blockchain in all types of businesses, and how to get started - The future of blockchain, and where the evolution of the technology is headed We hope you will join us! -- RESERVE A SPOT [limited space]: https://events.genndi.com/register/169105139238452470/a38dd0642f -- ** Even if you can't make the live webinar, everyone who registers for the event will receive an audio & video recording approximately 72 hours after the event
