Recruiting Top Talent for Rapidly Growing Startups

Talent is the most decisive asset of a company, regardless of the industry and market it operates in. HR Managers at rapidly growing startups not only need top talent, but they need it quickly. Recruiting a lot of people in a short timeframe can only be made possible by instilling a creative and efficient recruitment process. By finding the right strategy, TenX, a Singapore-based blockchain leader, was able to grow from 8 employees to 60 in just half a year, without relaxing its hiring standards. Dr. Julian Hosp will share his competitive approach to successfully recruiting top talent, right alongside the big players. You will learn:

  • How to identify and tap into the best talent pools
  • The trade-offs in tapping into global talent pools vs. local talent pools, where recruiting and integration may be easier
  • The right weight to put on relevant experience vs. cultural fit

Unlocking Potential of Blockchain Technology For a New Decentralised World

Blockchain technology is already marching confidently across all the industries. People have started realising that it is not just a toy for a bunch of hackers, but a powerful tool which has the potential to be deployed by financial institutions, businesses, governments and individuals. Dr. Julian Hosp will talk about the potential of blockchain technology to establish a new decentralised economy, how to accelerate that process and adapt to it.

Connecting Blockchains

The World Economic Forum predicts that 10 percent of the global GDP will be stored on the blockchain in less than 10 years. In terms of today’s global GDP that would be $7.8 trillion. Here a challenge arises: If we do not find a way to connect blockchains, these $7.8 trillion will be dispersed in such a way that its true value is a lot lower. So what's the solution? Dr. Julian Hosp talks about why it’s necessary to connect blockchains without creating a new larger blockchain and potential solutions for mass-crypto adoption.
