<P><SPAN><STRONG>What's the twist?</STRONG> </SPAN><BR><BR><SPAN>Blockchain edition means we will be focusing on ideas that utilize the power & potential of blockchain technology & design to solve problems. Blockchain technology gives us an opportunity to reimagine how we move, transact, share, & track goods & services. Some argue that blockchain technology is like the next internet. That is, the internet was the enabler & delivery mechanism for some of the greatest ideas of the last 2 decades. Blockchain can do the same for the next couple of decades & this is our chance to be the first ones to embrace & build on it. Don't miss this opportunity to get in on a new pioneering technology, early in the game! </SPAN><BR><BR><SPAN>Whether you are interested in the blockchain or not, the ultimate objective of the event is to empower you with a powerful process for taking any idea, blockchain-related or not, from concept to creation! <BR></SPAN></P>
