It is “a breakthrough in computer science” resulting from 20 years of research and development that will lead to the emergence of new products, companies and industries.This is how Marc Andreessen recently described Bitcoin. While some dismiss Bitcoin as a tool enabling criminals and terrorists to transfer money anonymously, investors are making significant bets that Bitcoin and other digital currencies will someday change the way the financial system works in the Internet era. One Bitcoin company, Circle, recently raised $17 million in VC funding. Bitcoin’s entrepreneurial opportunities go beyond arbitrage. Entrepreneurs are building companies on top of digital currency technologies while governments around the world are scrambling to create rules that will bring these currencies into the mainstream financial system. Our program will go beyond the basics and explore the opportunities of Bitcoin and other digital currencies that are quickly coming into focus for entrepreneurs, investors, merchants and consumers and the numerous challenges these entrepreneurs are likely to encounter.
