Cardano Enters Indian Market By Launching EMURGO Academy
Cardano is now expanding into Asia through India. The venture arm of Cardano, Emurgo today officially announced its entry into Indian Market by establishing EMURGO Academy, EMURGO Learning Solutions Private Limited.
The commercial arm of Cardano has gained local support from Indian government officials and enterprises and will be training the developers and create blockchain experts in order to expand the usage of blockchain technology. This strategic business expansion aligns perfectly well with the mission of EMURGO to drive the adoption of Cardano and add value to ADA holders.
“At EMURGO, we deeply believe the future of many leading industries will be profoundly impacted by blockchain technologies. This, in turn, will very quickly create a massive demand for blockchain engineers which we are committed to training. Without properly skilled talent, no technology can gain global adoption and prevalence. It’s all about jobs, jobs and more jobs,” said Manmeet Singh, the CIO of EMURGO.
From education, health records to supply chain management, the Indian government has spotlighted the potential applicability of blockchain technology to several use cases. However, despite blockchain-related jobs being the second fastest growing in the labor market, there is a limited supply of qualified blockchain developers worldwide.
Given the fact that the IT market of India is one of the biggest in the country with a market size of $160 billion and further projected to double by 2025, EMURGO Academy will be involved in the creation and delivery of curriculums for developers, where developers can learn to build on top of Cardano.
E Venkatesan, the Chief Executive Officer, EMURGO Academy, said,
“We are sure that at least 2,500 graduates of EMURGO Academy’s blockchain courses will go on to be hired in the first year by some of the country’s largest and most innovative organizations, thus serving to meet the gap in demand for quality blockchain developers.”
India is just another step in EMURGO’s vision to have blockchain become a vital social infrastructure, “much like the Internet” which starts with education. In the future, EMURGO Academy will be launching in other regions across the globe as well to “educate aspiring talents to develop on Cardano and drive the adoption of the Cardano blockchain ecosystem.”
