Going Beyond The Hype: Blockchain, Crytocurrency, ICOs

Hear from Arvie de Vera, Head of Fintech Business Group for Unionbank, as he goes beyond the hype of blockchain, cryptocurrency, and ICOs. Learn the fundamentals of these new and emerging technologies with real-world use cases, local and global trends, and understanding how blockchain affects us all now and into the future.

As one of the earliest institutional fintech players in the country, Unionbank is embracing digital transformation through a culture of innovation and leadership. It is also the first bank in the Philippines to pursue blockchain trials.

Also, we have another cool reason for you to join us this month: we're turning six! From a proof-of-concept (this was Startup Weekend Manila in October 2011) to a pitch deck presented to the Globe Telecom board, we were incorporated in March 2012. Today, Kickstart Ventures is a Corporate Venture Capital firm with a team of eight, manages two investments funds, and has 35 companies in our investment portfolio.

So come over and help us empty our fridge --- we're thrilled to celebrate this milestone, and it would be awesome to celebrate it with you!

See you,
