Since 01.01.2018 the private university in Frankfurt and the Munich based consultancy firm have been working towards the common goal of identifying concrete applications in business and developing suitable solutions. "Regardless of the industry, the blockchain will change the economy and society dramatically. I am convinced of this," says Balint Tolnay - blockchain expert at Ventum Consulting.

Awarded by the Financial Times, the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management is among the top 3 German business schools. Also showing the excellence in pioneering disruptive technology. In February 2017, it opened the Frankfurt School Blockchain Center as a think tank and research center. "With its broad network and in-depth technical expertise in Blockchain technology based latest research results, the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management is the perfect alliance partner," says Balint Tolnay.

The center is not only a sought-after contact point for start-ups, decision-makers and technology and industry experts, but also a development source for new courses for students or decision-makers from the business. "It is important that the paths between theory and practice are short. Our concept ensures that the latest findings are bidirectionally benefiting," explains Prof. Dr. Philipp Sandner, Head of the Frankfurt School Blockchain Center and member of the FinTech Council of the Ministry of Finance.

A further characteristic of the center is the focus in: banks, industry 4.0 and mobility. These are the special areas of Ventum Consulting, which has had a strong connection to the mobility industry since its foundation. Together with its deep technical understanding, Allianz offers complementary strengths to both parties. "An ideal partner who knows the needs of the economy as well as how the developed applications can be implemented - above all what matters. I look forward to insights and mutual inspiration," says Prof. Dr. Philipp Sandner.

The upcoming months will be marked by events, projects and research around the Blockchain. The joint evening in the Internet of Things (IoT)/ Mobility sector, which will take place in Munich, will mark as a highlight in 2018.
