Blockchain opportunities for SMEs in healthcare, agrofood, logistics and supply chains
Blockchain and distributed ledger technologies (DLT) are rapidly reshaping how society can benefit from digitalisation. At Blockstart, we understand that SMEs require assistance with the implementation of new technology, often because they lack the investment capacity or the tools to benefit from it. SMEs in healthcare, agrofood, logistics or supply chains are invited to join Blockstart's free training programme, which is tailored to provide its applicants with a learning platform as well as the opportunity for implementing tested blockchain solutions such as smart contracts, medical e-records and combined food databases. If you are an SME active in healthcare, agrofood, logistics or supply chains and are interested in joining the programme, please follow the link below to apply, or contact us at email@example.com
