EMURGO, the official commercial and venture arm of the Cardano project, a third generation blockchain, has formally announced its entry into the Indian market with the establishment of EMURGO Academy today. Along with local support from Indian Government officials and enterprises, EMURGO Academy will train developers and create blockchain experts to expand the usage of blockchain technology. This strategic business expansion aligns with EMURGO’s philosophy and mission to drive the adoption of the blockchain ecosystem.

EMURGO Academy is the launch pad of EMURGO Global’s entire education business line in India. The programs have been designed to target the need to upskill or reskill working professionals, under graduates and freshers looking for jobs using blockchain technology. All working professionals will be required to take a self-assessment test to evaluate their eligibility for the Executive Program while IT programming developers will need minimum of two years’ work experience alongside knowledge of Javascript/Python/C or C++. The entire curriculum of the Academy is based on a hybrid model with a mix of online and offline training strategy with SMEs as part of the trainer pool along with external consultants with industry exposure. The students will also be evaluated by CXOs to help them understand better the kind of tools that should be used in a particular architecture. Headquartered in Bangalore, EMURGO Academy will expand their base in five other cities – Hyderabad, Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi and Pune over the next 24 months. The training will commence from April 2019 onwards while interested applicants can enroll for the respective programs at www.emurgo.in.

Speaking on the launch of EMURGO Academy in Bangalore, Dr. K R Venugopal, Vice Chancellor, Bangalore University said, “Over the past few years, we have been witnessing an ever-increasing demand in the Indian marketplace for blockchain developers and experts. Out of the 4 million IT workforce in India, approximately 1.5 million of them are based in Bangalore. I am delighted with the launch of EMURGO Academy in the city and that will provide a platform to connect developers and organizations, enabling them learn the technology and implement it in their own business verticals. This will definitely open up better and newer opportunities for job aspirants in this field.”

Blockchain technology along with Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things (IoT) are expected to play central roles in the upcoming years across vast industries. The Indian government has spotlighted the potential applicability of blockchain technology to several use cases such as land registry, education and health records, and supply chain management.
