“This masterclass subject was relevant to me as it questioned centralized finance. It allowed me to widen my understanding of finance beyond the banking system. I realized that there were new possibilities in accessing finance that were global and inclusive,” says Kadidiatou Dem Tangara.
Hear from Kadidiatou Dem Tangara, Kognouman Fofana & Talhata Zourkarneini Toure about their learning experiences during the latest CryptoMasters courses by Mathis Gontier Delaunay & Matthias Vallet of KRYPTOSPHERE® at Kabakoo Academies:
“The higher the goals that an organization sets, and climate mitigation is undoubtedly one of the most ambitious we can now think about, the more energizing the process becomes. We have observed that backcasting from the future to today, imagining breakthrough solutions rather than incremental gains which build from the present, allows all sorts of organizations to free themselves from historical constraints and fears towards the existing ‘immunological systems’ that resist structural change. Focusing on future possibilities, people become more open, inclusive, collaborative and optimistic, thus increasing their capacity as agents of change,” says Javier Creus.

“Social Impact Network has identified a way to inject liquidity into Least Developed Countries by creating a new breed of impact investors.

With the European Innovation Council Fund, in short EIC Fund, the EU allocates about EUR 3 billion for the creation of one of Europe’s biggest investment funds. In order to help companies for a better scale-up and commercialisation, the EU will in this frame become the direct shareholder in start-ups with breakthrough technologies.
Early-stage deep tech companies in the areas of health, sustainability and advanced manufacturing can benefit from this investment in the form of a combination of grants and equity stakes.
Being shareholder in a company, the EU intends to lower the investment risks of scientific breakthroughs, which will…
Before discussing the EU funds and their potentials, it is very crucial to know the EU policies. The EU funding programmes have been invented to support the companies, organisations, research institutes, entrepreneurs, SMEs and Startups that can help the European Union to address its challenges and implement its policies.
Profound knowledge about policies helps project owners and managers to identify the main needs and concerns in the EU and gives them insights to align their innovative ideas with these needs, and finally enables them to match their projects with available EU funding programmes.
There are numerous funding opportunities in the…

“Why shouldn’t public sector organisations benefit from collaborations with SMEs in the same way as others such as corporates do? We aspired to build a programme that would help grow awareness of the public sector’s eagerness to interact and adopt those technologies in order to improve their services to citizens. We also hoped it would help SMEs address those markets that are often difficult to access for them,” says Pierre Baisle as we speak with him, Katy Ho and Dr. Robert M. Learney from Digital Catapult about their contributions to the DLT4EU accelerator programme.
