A series of live webinars showcasing promising technology ideas!

The Maritime Industry amidst #COVID19:
> Getting the business to cooperate with new ideas & technologies is always challenging when the NEED did not originate internally. Coronavirus helped the business get past the barrier of understanding due to the clear criticality of the NEED.
> Forward looking carriers are eager to become more digital, however many of them still struggle with paper-based operations.
> BLOCKCHAIN technology will dominate the supply-chain in the future.
> The shipping business is bleeding for a long time, and part of that is due to lack of cooperation between players. ELECTRONIC TRADE DOCUMENTS pose an opportunity for a network effect that will benefit all players including competing entities.
> Startups should strive for their project to stay away from the title of "IT project", but rather make it be viewed as a MISSION-CRITICAL one.
> To collaborate with a corporate, the startup needs a good SPONSOR from the corporate side, and be ready to accommodate DESIGN requirements.
> FAST ON-BOARDING is key, especially these days with increased interest from the business leading to accelerated adoption processes.
