Bettina Warburg: How the blockchain will radically transform the economy—Ted Talk 2016

Bettina Warburg is a blockchain researcher, entrepreneur and educator. A political scientist by training, she has a deep passion for the intersection of politics and technology.

Why you should listen

A graduate of both Georgetown and Oxford, Bettina Warburg started her career as a political scientist and public foresight researcher at a prominent Silicon Valley think tank. Today, she has taken her skills as a researcher and scientist and is applying them toward an entrepreneurial career by co-founding a venture studio business called Animal Ventures. There, she spends most of her time incubating new startup ideas, advising Fortune 500 clients, governments and universities in developing minimum viable products, and strategizing around blockchain, artificial intelligence, industrial internet of things and digital platforms.

Warburg is the executive producer of a Silicon Valley tech show called Tech on Politics, interviewing some of the world’s most influential political operatives, entrepreneurs, government official, and the creators of some of the most exciting digital products on the market.

Warburg recently launched a new Blockchain education course called “The Basics of Blockchain.” The hope is that this course will help spread the body of blockchain knowledge, inspire a new generation of entrepreneurs and get more people ready for the coming revolution.

What others say

“Bettina’s talk about blockchain was one of the most insightful and clear explanations of this new technology that I’ve seen. The tech is abstract and exotic, but she makes it concrete and familiar. Most who see it will get it.” — Kevin Kelly, founding executive editor of WIRED
