In June CADChain was invited to a 2-day forum in Slovakia, where data security issues were thoroughly discussed.
We made contact with a few cyber security specialists from the US. We had a talk with an AI researcher who is willing to advise us on that issue (this is for a slightly further future) and connect us to the director of the European Commission’s Joint Research Center (JRC).
In May CADChain also attended the Female Tech heroes event at High Tech campus. A lot of networking led to many useful conversations with people that could offer their expert advice during the proof of principle stage.
In May CADChain attended the Kaliningrad (Russia) edition of the St Petersburg International Legal Forum.
Big data, AI, blockchain, GDPR and IP protection are the main topics that were of interest to us. Contacts with two law professors, who specialize in IT and IP have been established.
In April we were invited to present CADChain at the annual Beyond Tech event organized by the HighTech campus. However, not only did we present the startup twice, but we also had a lot of meetings with companies like TNO, IBM, ABN-Amro, Philips, DEKRA, EY, TSG Group
In February we were invited to speak at the LDA (Limburgse Design Associatie) conference. CADChain gave a 30 minute presentation in two parts : blockchain 101 and an overview of CADChain.
Since our graduation from the first stage of the incubation program at Brightlands Innovation Factory on February 1st we have been mainly busy with two things, initial funding and networking. Both of these have been a success, even though the latter has had an effect on the first. It is taking us a bit longer than expected to prepare applications for subsidies, but at the same time making them more substantial.
