Join the Mack Institute and the Penn Wharton Public Policy Initiative for a talk on the Delaware Blockchain Initiative, a joint venture between the State of Delaware and Symbiont — a blockchain technology provider — to develop a suite of programs promoting the use of distributed ledger and smart contract technologies by Delaware-incorporated businesses.
More than 1 million companies are incorporated in Delaware, including half of all publicly traded companies in the US and 65 percent of the Fortune 500. The Initiative will update foundational corporate record-keeping processes such as share issuances and transfers to eliminate errors, reduce transaction costs, and promote innovation.
Featured speakers include Caitlin Long, President and Chairman of Symbiont, and Andrea Tinianow, Director of Global Delaware, who will discuss not only the innovative power of the blockchain for business operations but also its significant implications for financial regulation. Lunch will be provided.
This event is co-sponsored by the Wharton FinTech Club, the Penn Technology Entrepreneurship Club, the Penn FinTech Club, and the Wharton Technology Club.
