Bringing exciting digital solutions to 2021

Looking back at 2020

2020 was a good year for going digital. As the pandemic took hold early on, the world had to adjust its plans for the year and find new ways to make progress from a distance. Fortunately for Blockstart, our partners are no strangers to finding digital solutions.

We used this opportunity to put our heads together online and carefully organise a tailored, flexible training programme that can best support businesses and their individual needs. After thoughtful consideration, we identified challenges facing small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in three focus areas: logistics/supply chain, agro-food, and healthcare industries. This allowed us to design courses that will be truly useful to SMEs and help them solve tangible problems, charting a straightforward path to success for Blockstarters joining the programme.

Though we could not launch any in-person training, knowledge sharing was key in 2020. Our partners hosted a series of webinars throughout the year for SMEs in healthcare and logistics to broaden their understanding of blockchain technology and how it could improve their businesses. After extensive planning and outreach, we officially launched the training programme on the 2nd of December.

Looking forward to 2021

The Blockstart project has high ambitions for the year ahead, aiming to welcome many SMEs to our free training programme. To guide incoming SMEs, our partners have defined the journey through the programme in our SME roadmap to Blockstart. Each step of the programme is detailed in this essential tool for new SMEs, providing insight into what to expect from their exciting new venture to becoming knowledgeable about blockchain.


 This spring project leader Brightlands invites SMEs to join their dynamic and interactive EU Regional blockchain event on 4th March, 13:00 - 16:00 CET. The event will showcase blockchain technology in healthcare, logistics and agro-food through live projects and testimonials, and will be joined by industry experts including renowned inspirator Jan Scheele. Register here to take advantage of this unique opportunity and gain in-depth insights into the world of blockchain technology. 


We are excited for 2021 to be filled with all things blockchain and to help SMEs grow with this innovative technology. What could your business look like with blockchain? Find out by joining our free training programme!
