The Blockchain Technology Conference 2018 will be happening on August 31st 2018 Pune. The Blockchain Conference 2018 will bring together a diverse range of experts who will discuss all the opportunities, challenges and exciting possibilities in innovation and disruption that can be leveraged in Pune using this technology.

National banks and regulators, exchanges and investment banks across the world are taking seriously the financial innovation of distributed ledger or block chain technology. The block chain, aka Trust Machine underpins "crypto currencies" such as Bitcoin; but it goes beyond digital money. It provides a shared, trusted, public ledger that everyone can inspect, but no single user controls. It is at the cusp of revolutionising international money transfers, trade finance, syndicated lending and collateral management, among other applications. As it allows for almost instantaneous payments and settlement, the potential impact on the role of traders, quants and other financial technologists cannot be underestimated.

The event features an inspiring day of talks and workshops by professional speakers focused on Blockchain technology and Innovation.

This conference brings together Block Chain technologists in the finance sector, regulators, industry commentators, computer science researchers and others involved in financial innovation; these experts explore some of the technology and the many applications of Block chain in Financial Services.

X Topic Abstract

This talk is based on the assumption that a company/industry structure is based on the environment and changes in environment will change the company/industry structure.

Organizations are structured around on the information resources (knowledge, data) that are available to them. Blockchain creates a fundamental shift in the resources, as the amount of "data" an organization can access expands exponentially.

As in any disruptive innovation, this reorganization happens incrementally, over long periods of time, with clear winners and losers. We can use the tools developed over the last few years (Agile/Lean Startup, Design Thinking, Blue Ocean Strategy) to speed up the change and chalk out potential paths to eventual success.

We will use the experience of Harabaag (an agri-tech) company, to show how a new form of information organization is possible with the use of Blockchain.

Mohnish Sharma (a serial entrepreneur) is the Founder/CEO of Harabaag. At Harabaag, he is integrating his wide-ranging experience in delivering Customer-focused products, Technology, and Marketing to deliver impactful agriculture innovations.
