Blockchain Accelerator MouseBelt Launches Education Initiatives In California Universities
We can see a rise in Blockchain courses globally, and now Univerity of California has decided to offer them too. 3 campuses of the university, namely, UCLA, UC Santa Barbara, and UC Davis have announced a partnership with MouseBelt Blockchain Accelerator.
MouseBelt Program Director Ashlie Meredith says:
“In the 1990s, CS 101 was the hottest class in college. Auditoriums were filled with excited students chasing the new trend that promised high-paying jobs. We believe blockchain technology is poised to be the CS 101 for Generation Z.”
However, Ashlie says that the demand for blockchain education courses still outweighs the supply. Students are being short-changed out of high-paying job opportunities and MouseBelt is here to change that.
The programs will offer undergraduate to doctorate level students participate in the blockchain programs. MouseBelt has allocated $500,000 in funding for up to five blockchain projects. Additionally, the blockchain-focused company is donating to the universities' engineering departments.
MouseBelt is the world’s first full-service blockchain accelerator that goes beyond just seed capital, connections, and mentorship. The accelerator is uniquely equipped with more than 25 experienced blockchain developers, project managers, business developers, marketers, and lawyers.
The project’s goal is to assist design, fund, and lead enterprises driven by blockchain technology, intended to well-equip students at these campuses with the tools that are essential to pursue careers in their domains.
Ivy leagues like Stanford University, University of California at Berkeley, Harvard, CFA institute, and Edinburg Napier University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Wharton and Irish university, and for now University of California’s campuses are no exception.
