About us

DenkFabrik specialises on the applicability of Blockchain – everything on the interface of business and tech

Education & Delivery

Our first pillar is delivery: We combine our hands-on knowledge with our academic, managerial, and educational skills and focus on impartial entry-level workshops, blockchain in business classes, and market entry strategies

Research & Content

We set ourselves apart by our second pillar, research on and experience in “blockchain gone live”: What worked and what didn’t when bringing blockchain tech into the real world ​

Partners & Network

Our vast network of startups, experts, and academic partners as a third pillar makes us able to execute – be it on supporting through the first investment into a blockchain venture or through the implementation of a very first Proof of Concept

Partners & Network


We’ve assembled a team of experts from computer science, product development, consulting, marketing, and blockchain investment, to bring you up to speed. We’ve brought innovation into large corporates in nearly all traditional industries from automotive to healthcare, and worked with over 40 blockchain companies to make them as successful as they are. It’s time to share what we’ve learned.
