Session: How a Kindergarten Teacher Ended Up Working at a Blockchain Startup
How does a bilingual, elementary school teacher go from the Kindergarten classroom of a public school to traveling internationally and speaking at conferences about bitcoin, blockchain, peer-to-peer technologies, and open-source software? Come hear about this non-linear journey tied together by curiosity, continual learning, and deep values in education and people helping people.
Caterina has been involved in the P2P, blockchain, and open-source ecosystem since late 2013, educating and introducing non-technical audiences to peer-to-peer tools and OSS projects.
She is currently the Director of Community for the Open-Source Team at G-Research; she works with startups and fintech companies, non-profits, and clients in industries ranging from collaborative economies, consumer products, governance, and healthcare.
Past speaking events and conferences include TEDxGhent, SXSW, Institute for the Future, University of Tokyo, Health 2.0, Inside Bitcoins, OuiShare Fest, and Stanford University.
