Jana Petkanic

She’s got a full-time job as a blockchain consultant with company Axveco where she’s training people on blockchain use-cases or smart contracts as well as she’s helping the clients to find out how blockchain can transform their businesses. Her background in applied Maths and organizational thinking combined with creativity yield to inventing and improving meetup concepts, as she believes that in this early phase of technology it’s crucial to bring professionals together and confront ideas or discuss solutions.
