Event Details

The emergence of disruptive technologies means we can now access more information at our fingertips than all of the data that has existed for all of humankind.

Driving the evolution of banking, supply chains, and now the Web 3.0, the Blockchain is a tamper-proof ledger that has been in headlines and scrutinised over recent years.

Some creative entrepreneurs and startups have used the Blockchain to drive sustainable solutions for the greater good.

At How Technology is Driving Social Impact, Adam Bumpus, the CEO of RedGrid, and Simon Wilson, CTO of RedGrid will explore:

  • How technology such as the Blockchain is being used to create positive social impact

  • What limitations technologies such as the Blockchain and what opportunities can we look forward to
