Welcome to our Christmas NOTWICS Connecting People, where we hope to bring some “Ho Ho Ho” and special cheer, from the 5 excellent Start-Up businesses, presenting in this show-caser. Each of these businesses offer clever Technologies and targeted, successful solutions. both for now and the future.
So, when you get bored of the family festive squabbles this Christmas, albeit probably less likely with the outlaws not permitted, for most !!! Or faced with watching the 15th movie featuring Adam Sandler, Tom Cruise or an elf (or both!!)..find a quiet area to enjoy these festive video gifts, brought to you by the kind support of our sponsors: leading lawyers, Gowling WLG, Financial institution Tilney Smith & Williamson and fast-growing digital publication, Maddyness UK.
Akin to leisure around the holidays, the content is up for 30 days and you can watch them many times as you like, just like Netflix. If any of these presentations are of interest, as always do not hesitate to contact the founder, directly, through a button under each video, which takes you to each founder’s LinkedIn page.
We think there are some right crackers in this group, well suited to the time of year and looking out to the changing world we’re fast being accelerated into. So, take a look and enjoy your Christmas season and hopefully, we’ll maybe see you face to face again in 2021 !!
Here’s our lead sponsor, Helen Williamson @ Tilney Smith & Williamson to say a few words…
VerifyEd is a clever blockchain Technology that aims to create a world of trusted certificates and credentials across all educational and professional sectors.
And this is not their dream!!! …as the founder Yaz highlights strong and growing traction already with many universities, professional bodies and organisations, to digitise such certificates.
By doing this, it assures the value of these achievements globally, subsequently providing protection against a growing problem of Certificate fraud.
Not only is gaining an educational or professional certificate a well-earned achievement, everyone should have access to a trusted, secure, readily available record that validates this success.
And now you CAN.. with VerifyED, AS YAZ EXPLAINS…
