Topic: Blockchain for Nonprofits and Social Impact: How Can We Use It Right Now?

Are you curious about blockchain after seeing so many headlines? Does it live up to the hype? And how can it have a positive impact on nonprofit missions? With Cleveland becoming a new global hub for blockchain through the efforts of Blockland and the Blockland Solutions conference, now is the ideal time to learn about this technology’s potential for nonprofits and social enterprise.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • Why people are excited about blockchain and the new things it makes possible in the social good space
  • How you can determine if blockchain technology would be useful for your organization – and how to fund it
  • Case studies and stories about how blockchain is already being used by nonprofits today
  • What nonprofits can expect from blockchain over the next 12-24 months
  • Tips on how to effectively keep up with the latest developments

In addition, a panel of local experts will share experiences and best practices. Join Leon Wilson, Chief of Digital Innovation & Chief Information Officer of the Cleveland Foundation, Lorraine Schuchart, Founder, and CEO of Prosper for Purpose, Michael Hudak, Project Manager at BlueBridge Networks, and Randy Cole, Exec VP & Chief Solutions Officer of Ownum!
