What You’ll Find

All industries will inevitably be forced to adapt or face disruption by blockchain technology, similar to how they had to adjust to the Internet. The full potential of blockchain remains largely untapped. The path towards a more trusting and efficient blockchain future is being paved minute-by-minute by innovators around the world. Crypto Valley Academy will enable you to predict and evaluate how accelerating technologies are transforming your industry, your organization, your career, and your life. While other leadership programs focus on best business practices for today, you’ll come away with an exponential vision for the future in this era of convergence and rapid change.

Who You’ll Meet

This intensive program is intended for senior leaders in business, government, and nonprofit sectors with the desire to have a positive impact at scale, and who want to create their organization’s future – and the world’s future – not simply react to it. Executives that want to be on top of the upcoming Blockchain/Crypto revolution, but did not have time until now.

When you attend an Executive Program, you’ll be part of a tribe of dynamic leaders and changemakers from around the globe, to deepen your understanding and broaden your perspective of our changing Blockchain world.

Each program attracts the most ambitious leaders and entrepreneurs from around the world, CEOs, CTOs, R&D leaders, investors, government officials, regulators, and thought leaders. The participants and the faculty represent the future of their industries and countries, and are often working on projects that have the potential to reshape the way the world works.

Where You’ll Be

Switzerland is a leading global financial hub stationed in the heart of Europe with high end education, excellent domestic and global business networks, efficient bureaucracy and low corruption. It is also globally recognized for its privacy-friendly legislation, world-class talent (ranked number 1 in the world for ease of attracting and retaining world-class talent) and openness. Furthermore, the Swiss have one of the strongest privacy cultures in the world, with the first bank secrecy law dating back to 1713.

The Crypto Valley and the city of Zug have picked on this pioneer role and have become the hottest destination in the world for blockchain businesses, offering a powerful platform for global growth due to its business infrastructure and the accessibility of its local crypto-friendly government. In 2016, the city of Zug became the first city in the world to accept bitcoin payments for tax purposes, in 2017 Crypto Valley announced that it’s launching a decentralized ethereum-based digital ID system, and in 2018 it successfully completed its first test of a local blockchain-based voting system.
