Blockchain Work Innovator HUMAN Protocol Launches Web3 Event - Newconomics - Alongside Web Summit In Lisbon
Startup pitch competition to win $15000 grant
A new event is launching on the fringe of Web Summit in Lisbon this year highlighting the future of work on the blockchain. HUMAN Protocol, the decentralised, automated solution to work is hosting Newconomics so that technologists, business people and the curious can get to know how the blockchain can work in a host of new applications.
Located at Lx Factory in Alcântara, Lisbon, the event will include 12 talks and panels over two days and a pitching contest to show off practical innovation on the blockchain. By using a secure, decentralised network, businesses and organisations can explore a whole new way of working with anyone anywhere.
Guest speakers at the event include Sam Weeks of Google, Erika Decker Wykes-Sneyd of Adidas, Cyrus Fazel of Swissborg, Jason Fox of SAS Who Dares Wins, Lauren Ingram from Women of Web3 and more speakers to be announced.
Maxime Sebti Growth Director at HUMAN Protocol says, “Web3 is more than just crypto currencies and expensive jpegs, the world of the token can be exploited in so many ways and we hope to show this to everyone who joins us for the talks and networking.”
There will also be a web3 startup pitching competition offering up to $15,000 in the form of a grant sponsored by the HUMAN Protocol Foundation’s Grant Programme. Emergent startups can register to join in here.
Attendees can network with some of the more forward-thinking global companies building the future economies of Web3.
Andreas Schemm, Ecosystem and Operations Director of HUMAN Protocol Foundation says, “We’re not in competition with Web Summit, but there will be a lot of Web3 curious people there who would like to get their hands dirty and really understand this technology. We invite everyone to join us and hear more about what it really means to work in a decentralised way.”
