Newconomics 2023 - Meet our Speakers: Sarah Gottwald
Don’t forget to sign up for your place at Newconomics in November. We’ll have a cool startup competition, great panels and speakers and a chance to network with leaders in the web3 industries. One of our brilliant guests is Sarah Gottwald, MD of the Blockchain Founders Group which supports early-stage startups that use web3 tech with general direction, support and strategy. She shared her thoughts with us ahead of the event.
“The web3 arena is a really exciting place to work if you appreciate innovation and fresh ideas. To me, it symbolises a shift towards decentralised digital sovereignty. It’s a powerful extension of the principles that first drew me to blockchain – autonomy, transparency, and the ability to operate free.
I have a background in corporate strategy and digital transformation, and I have seen web3 evolve as the next frontier on business innovation. It offers transformative potential for how we conceptualise value, trust, and peer-to-peer interactions, particularly in the financial services and manufacturing sectors.
Right now, I think the main barrier to mass adoption is easy access and easy user interfaces and a lot less risk in using web3 technologies. My perspective emphasises the importance of education and dispelling misconceptions. Many are unaware of or are misinformed about the benefits and intricacies of Web3 and blockchain, and addressing this gap is crucial.
Blockchain and Web3 can revolutionise the way we approach work and business, making processes more transparent, secure, and efficient. I'd like to see technology address the decentralisation of opportunities, ensuring that no matter where someone is based, they can access the resources and platforms they need to succeed.
I'm excited about the potential of decentralised technologies to democratise opportunities, create more equitable business ecosystems, and bring about a new era of innovation and collaboration. The work we do at Blockchain Founders Group is a testament to the transformative potential of this space.”
