empowering insurTech thinkers.

I was invited to sit in on the 6-week Blockchain and Insurance sprint. I intended to drop by once per week, with maybe an hour. I ended up attending 2-3 days per week, staying for 1/2 day or more. The staff and facilitators did well, engaging the 12 attendees. The activities were taken very seriously and the results evidenced knowledge expansion.
