Since February 2017, TeamBlockchain has been organising MeetUp events most months. The MeetUps are designed to showcase examples of organisations using Blockchain technology and/or Digital Assets. The events are hosted at the offices of international lawyers and accountants, who also ask their clients to attend.
The format typically includes three companies presenting, but they are not allowed to pitch in order to raise funds as the events are meant to be educational. The presentations conclude with a 20-30 min Q&A session, followed by 90 mins of drinks and networking.
We have over 1,600 in our MeetUp group with, on average, 60 to 90 attendees at the monthly sessions. Those who attend are usually 75% from UK and 25% from Europe, USA and Asia, being accountants, corporate brokers, fund managers, lawyers and their clients. We also have individuals and company directors of businesses who are involved in running organisations that are using, or looking to use, Blockchain technology.
