Our previous summit reviews

Blockchain Leadership Summit, Zurich
The first event was held at the prestigious Hotel Dolder in Zurich, Switzerland
On March 9, 2018 we had the first edition of the Blockchain Leadership Summit in Zurich. At the unique location of The Dolder Grand Hotel we gathered together over 500 of the world's TOP experts, proactive investors and recognised visionaries in the Blockchain industry to discuss the current state and the foreseen future of the decentralised world.
3 exclusive videos for free
We've created a special package that will show you how to convince investors and win the pitch without slides, the behind-the-scenes of a Photochain project and a valuable conference on ICO regulation:
  • ICO winning pitch: Livetree, the world's first film & television coin
  • PWC workshop on ICO regulation, taxation and legal setup
  • ICO winning pitch: Photochain, blockchain based business model to trade digital images
The Blockchain Leadership Summit at the Dolder hotel in Zurich was an amazing international experience. Immersed in the stunning art installations of the Dolder hotel; amongst an international crowd from Russia, Kazakhstan, Liechtenstein, the Americas,…; and with panel discussions on a variety of short-term and longer-term topics of concern. Organized by Innmind, a global community of all stakeholders in the startup scene, and in partnership with Kickico

Efi Pylarinou
Fintech thought-leader, consultant and investor
During the Blockchain Leadership Summit, which took place in Zurich on March 9th 2018 I stressed that blockchain based solutions are among the most up-to-date methods and techniques, and those need to be employed both by the government sector and private enterprises. Among other benefits are the unrestricted nature of digital money, which is not subject to any unpredictable freezes and sanctions, thus reducing political risks. In this respect, Russian banks are looking closely into switching some of their international operations into crypto forms.
Dr. Sergey Glazyev
economic advisor to the President of Russia
Thank you very much for your great support and the organization of that amazing event. It was a great pleasure to be part of the summit and to make a lot of new connections. I've also posted the positive results regarding the ICO pitch contest in a LinkedIn post. Would appreciate if you could like the post and letting it go viral.
