Blockchain Forum: How Government Can Unleash Digital Ledgers' Potential

Join Tandem Innovation Alliance on Wednesday, August 23rd at Refraction in Reston Town Center for an evening devoted to understanding the impact of blockchain technologies and the future it holds for the government and startups.

We have invited investors, industry leaders and government officials as part of our ongoing emerging technology Summer Series. This evening we will focus on the areas where the government is investing in blockchain programs to modernize federal agencies and where startups can fit in.

Learn about where agencies want to invest and the new contracting mechanisms being used to recruit startups and small businesses. Following the panel, Tandem will select companies that feature exciting new blockchain technologies to provide lightning pitches on the next great innovations that could transform the industry.

Come hungry, food, drinks and plenty of networking opportunities with investors and government leaders will be provided.
