The power of blockchain smart contracts – by Heineken and Finturi


This session will be in English.

In this session we are going to explore the world of smart contracts. We do this through the lens of a Dutch Fintech startup and the lens of Dutch multinational.

Sanjukta Barooah is Chief Operating Officer at Finturi and as part of the management team is striving for an innovative invoice financing platform that reduces overhead costs, lowers processing time, predicts risk and directly connects small and medium-sized enterprises and financiers with each other.

Shridhar Mahesh is Global Digital Innovation Lead at Heineken and is responsible for setting the benchmark regarding new innovations and technologies for The Heineken Company worldwide. He has a strong interest in blockchain and is working with Heineken to have blockchain integrated in different parts of their complex supply chain. In this session he will touch upon smart contracts and how Heineken applies them in their supply chain.

Comparing two cases from a startup and a multinational gives us an unique insight and shows different perspectives on the technology.
