    Could Blockchain Help Solve the Gun Crisis? ⎜#MakerZone EP.54

    Could Blockchain Help Solve the Gun Crisis? ⎜#MakerZone EP.54

    No matter where you stand on gun safety, gun control, gun violence or guns in general, this article presents some fresh thinking material, by addressing an intractable societal problem through the neutral lens of technology. I recently had the opportunity to sit down with David Noble, Director of UConn Werth Institute for Innovation and Co-Founder at GunClear. This team founded out of UConn’s innovation space envisions a world in which we actually have privacy in the internet. To them, GunClear is even bigger than gun safety. It is about personal privacy and freedom.

Here are Kai's key lessons learned in building Lings, the fastest-growing insurance company in Switzerland.

    Here's the truth: Corporations can be a fantastic source of innovation and startups. It's the job of senior management to strip away layers of complexity, blockers, politics and to create a safe environment culturally to unlock that potential. Your talented people will shine through and do the rest for you!
