From Oct 9 – 16th, 2020, Digital Week Online will feature online events for entrepreneurs and investors, including “The Babylon Project” blockchain hackathon and the “Global Blockchain Day,” where experts will share their views on DeFi and CBDC among other trends in blockchain.
Building on the success of the first global gathering in May 2020, which attracted 170 top-level speakers, 60+ professional investors and 1,500 attendees, Digital Week Online will be expanding to an even bigger community of innovators and entrepreneurs on 9th-16th October; “Keeping the tech world united – changing the future! Online. For everyone.”
The event will kick off with the “The Babylon Project”, an intense three-day (9-11th October) virtual blockchain hackathon that aims to democratize access to global innovation.
On Oct 12th, “Global Blockchain Day” will take place. In here, top experts will tackle topics such as DeFi, central bank digital currencies, blockchain for corporates, institutional investments and mining.
All participants then take a “virtual networking break” on Oct 13th by joining one of the best intuitive AI-powered business matching platforms.
Innovation Days run Oct 14-16th and are broken down by region for local tech gurus, mentors and investment community leaders to engage audiences on seven key tracks:
– Covid19 and its impact on economies
– Privacy & Cyber Security
– Digital Marketing
– Impact & Sustainability
– Corporate Innovation
– Gaming & Entertainment
Each track will be co-hosted by a reputable organization with deep expertise in that space. For example, the Privacy & Cyber Security track will be co-hosted by PrivacyRules which unites law firms and cyber security companies across 50 countries. The Corporate Innovation track will be co-hosted by Plug and Play Tech Center – a global leader of the corporate acceleration programs and investments.
Keeping faithful to their core community, Digital Week Online will also host a start-up competition and pitch sessions, where budding entrepreneurs will get feedback from top-investors and experts. Given the current global pandemic, the organization has waived the fees to participate.
