Grant Thornton Spain



Grant Thornton is constantly pursuing excellence through innovation. One of the latest innovations which can truly disrupt business models in the next few years is Blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. At Grant Thornton we put together an unique multidisciplinary Blockchain team with not only experts on Blockchain but experts in regulations, economy and finance. The way we understand technology is, that besides being aware of innovations, we need to be part of them. Therefore, we have taken one step further and decided to sponsor Block Chain Space, one of the first accelerators of Blockchain startups. Our aim is to get involved on new blockchain innovations from day one, work closely with startups and leverage this knowledge to provide our customers with the best consultancy services on Blockchain technologies.

Representatives:

Antonio García-Lozano, Partner and Consulting leader.

“Grant Thornton has been following closely blockchain progress at international level during the last years, and also setting up collaboration agreements with blockchain startups, where innovation begins. We are on a very good position to help our customers to research on this technology.”

Luis Pastor, Head of IT Consulting

“Sponsoring Block Chain Space let us team up with startups and innovate with them on blockchain solutions. Therefore, our blockchain knowledge is always up to date with the last minute innovations.”
