Disrupting the Silicon Valley Model of Innovation

Disrupting the Silicon Valley Model of Innovation

You are invited to join fellow UBC alumni in Hong Kong for an exciting talk on the future of innovation by Marc-David Seidel, expert on distributed trust technologies, innovation, and entrepreneurship.

Seidel will use a sociological lens to break down how distributed trust technologies, such as blockchain and cryptocurrency, affect Vancouver’s ecosystem, the Silicon Valley innovation model of Venture Capital, as well as major institutions around the world such as universities and banks.

This is a great opportunity to reconnect with UBC, while learning about the impact of technological advancements on society and innovation.

Marc-David L. Seidel


Seidel is the RBC Financial Group Professor of Entrepreneurship and Director of the W. Maurice Young Centre for Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital Research at Sauder. He also serves on the Management Board of Blockchain@UBC.
