Presentations & Training

Emerging technologies and blockchain are complex but fascinating topics. Our clients appreciate us for the straight forward and understandable way we make sense of complex topics for professional and general audiences. It's really important to have a common language and a shared understanding before spending time on envisioning opportunities and making plans.

Business Design

Every now and then a new technology arises that will over time make a really big impact on the way things are done. Like the smartphone, or the internet. Blockchain will by most estimates be such a technology. We've spent time and effort on honing the tools and methods that we use so that when we work together with you, the resulting business ideas will be concrete and impactful.

Execution Support

Finding the right people and talent is really important for any project. But in reality the right talent can be hard to find. If it's helpful for your needs, we are happy to provide people from our network to work as part of your team on an interim, part-time basis. Some examples of the roles we can provide are: Change Champions, Transformation Agents, Product Owners and Chief Digital Officers. Simply, smart people with the right skills, on an as-a-service & as-needed basis.

Solution & Consortium Design

Digital and blockchain projects require much more than just technology. Identifying the best way to get the ecosystem to work together, creating the necessary governance and legal structures, and setting up co-operatives, consortiums or joint ventures is easire when you're not doing it for the first time. Often a neutral third party (that's us) can also be useful in bringing together the ecosystem.
