General PublicMedia & Tech


Web3 is here; and although nascent, it will deeply affect everyone professionally and personally. What to do? The digital evangelist and marketing technologist, Virginie Glaenzer will give her advice. She will explain Web3 practices and their complexities, using business cases across the economy.

If you know something about Web3, but not entirely sure what it involves besides cryptocurrency, Virginie Glaenzer’s talk will explain. She sees Web3 as threatening the fundamental structure of financial institutions, and sees the knowledge as vital for business leaders.

You will learn about Web3 and the emerging “abundant” emerging economy that is affecting legacy companies and entrepreneurial enterprises. Glaenzer has explained, “Everyone is a shareholder in something, with Robinhood slices of shares to Angellist slices of start-ups; the micro everything removes the barriers to entry.”

Glaenzer will detail the four underlying business principles of Web3: Decentralization; Trustless Interactions; Transparency and Digital Ownership. And she will tell us the So What – why leaders in the economy should care.

She will explain, among other concepts:
– Why Web3 will lead to more peer-to-peer transactions and relationships
– Coins vs. Tokens and Nonfungible Tokens (NFT) vs. Fungible Tokens
– Hot and Cold Wallets
– DeFi — Decentralized Finance
– DAO — Decentralized Autonomous Organizations

Glaenzer says we are at the beginnings of Web3. It is at the level “like the internet was when we had modems.”

Participants must register by Noon on Monday, February 20th to receive details on joining the discussion. The Zoom link will be sent out 24 hours before the event.

Please note that no refunds will be issued.
