Virtual SSF Summit: Startup Societies in a Post-Covid World

to
538 people attended
In the aftermath of Covid, the world will need to rebuild economically and politically. To prepare for this, the Startup Societies Foundation is hosting a virtual summit that will explore how special jurisdictions can combat pandemics and rebuild governance institutions & economics in the aftermath of Covid 19. Here are some of our speakers:

This conference will explore how small and special jurisdictions have an advantage when dealing with coronavirus and similar pandemics. Their size makes it more manageable for governments to trace goods, people, and to implement drastic measures to fight health threats. Succesful containment strategies within Hong Kong, Singapore and Macau are evidence of this. 

Other special jursidictions, like Special Economic Zones (SEZ) can facilitate trade as states enact policies to reduce transmission. Trade barriers will likely follow recent travel restrictions as states are more motivated to control their own supply chains.  Yet states must still trade. SEZs can provide a bastion of global exchange amid mounting tensions. Also, SEZs that focus on medical technologies can help firms create preventive treatments or vaccines. These innovative Zones can also be administered by Distributed Ledger Technologies, reducing the need for physical contact.

Special jurisdictions should be at the forefront of PostCovid 19 policy by providing innovative, accountable, and nimble governance. Now, at the depth of the pandemic, is the time to lay the foundations. Don't Panic. Build.

All ticket holders will recieve a
free copy of our how-to manual to create Startup Societies. Also, to support decentralized applications, the conference will also accept cryptocurrenies to purchase tickets. To process a cryptocurrency transaction, follow the instructions (here).
