After a mind-blowing year for crypto assets and ICOs with an increasing demand for blockchain in 2017, the last year was also mind-blowing with major problems and concerns about the new disruptive technology – similar to the development of the dot-com bubble 20 years ago. So, in 2019, mind-blowing approaches to further implement the blockchain technology arise:
- Security Token Offerings (STOs) are the new, mature version of ICOs and many expect STOs to disrupt entrepreneurial and corporate finance.
- Shaping the future of asset management, many countries are bringing new regulations to benefit from blockchain technology.
- Big companies are filing for blockchain patents, mass adoption is just a matter of time.
Having those developments in mind, this seminar aims to discuss the future of blockchain and its implications on the world. We are looking forward to meeting you to join our discussion!
The event takes place in cooperation with the Technical University of Munich (Chair for Strategy and Organisation, Prof. Dr. Isabell Welpe).

CONTENT OF THE CONFERENCE
Currently, blockchain or distributed ledger technology (DLT) is intensively discussed among different sectors, and its potential does not only affect the financial sector but also the real economy and the government sector. It is expected to massively impact the way we do economic transactions, thereby enabling completely new forms of value creation and business models.
The topic of the seminar is the development of blockchain-based solutions with regard to emerging approaches on how to implement blockchain technology. In the framework of this seminar, we will discuss topics such as DLT in – not only financial – industries, cryptocurrencies, STOs, crypto funds, Euro-on-Blockchain and tokens of decentral business models. Following questions will be answered:
- How important will cryptocurrencies, tokens, STOs and other types of digital assets be in the future?
- Which impact will STOs have on the VC industry?
- Will cash-on-ledger disrupt financial business models?
- What types of tokens exist and how should they be regulated?
- Which new business models exist for asset managers and brokers?
- Should investment funds assess such digital assets? How can crypto assets be assessed?
- Which blockchain startups should be watched?

THIS WORKSHOP IS IDEAL FOR THE FOLLOWING PEOPLE
Blockchain technology has the potential to fundamentally alter the way business processes are conducted across a multitude of industries around the globe. So far, banks and FinTechs are the biggest sectors affected by blockchain technology and crypto currencies in specific. However, it is also necessary to understand how the blockchain technology will change other relevant sectors such as the IoT, mobility, and energy sector, and thus improving our daily lives. It is believed that current profit pools will be disrupted and redistributed toward the owners of new, highly efficient blockchain platforms. Therefore, understanding the fundamental concepts and the implications of this technology is essential not just for decision-makers in banks and industries, but for everyone.
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 industry interested in blockchain technology
- Developers and architects from central banks and regulators as well as IoT companies
- Analysts confronted with the application of these technologies
- Startup founders and startup enthusiasts interested in blockchain technology
- Consultants and lawyers interested in the implications of blockchain

About the Chair for Strategy and Organization at the Technical University of Munich
Research at the Chair for Strategy and Organization focuses on the fields of leadership, innovation, and organization.

About the Professorship for Internet Business and Internet Services (IBIS) at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München
Professor Kranz and his team at IBIS are striving to find answers to the various questions for information systems research that arise from the digital transformation at the interface between technologies, management and organization.
Their goal is to understand the disruptive and transformative effects of digital technologies on the economy and the society. We employ empirical- quantitative methods to understand these effects and the factors that drive success to ultimately apply this knowledge to design technology and applications for economic and societal benefits.
