MouseBelt Helps Build Blockchain Basecamps on College Campuses for Students from Over 60 Top Universitites

The MouseBelt Blockchain Accelerator has confirmed the reintroduction of their University Program at the beginning of Spring. This new initiative is expected to be an internal version of its predecessor, which only focused on supporting blockchain-related courses in US-based universities.

The most significant achievement of the MouseBelt program is funding the introduction of the first blockchain engineering program at UCLA. In addition, the organization also supports several student blockchain associations across American universities.

The revamped University Program is expected to support student blockchain societies from leading universities across the globe. Some of the institutions that will be covered by the initiative include Yale, Oxford, the National University of Singapore, and Cambridge. The program will take 8 weeks, during which participants will learn, interact and create blockchain-based solutions for real-world challenges. The event will culminate with the selection of the 10 best projects that will each receive a $25,000 reward to fund their further development.

Another significant improvement to be featured in the new program is a series of courses that will be administered by prominent figures in the blockchain industry. These new courses will be divided into three modules; student leadership, the business of blockchain and blockchain engineering. Students can opt for one or any preferred combination of the three.

The mode of teaching the aforementioned lessons will be online videos. To enhance the interaction between the learners and tutors, live classes will be scheduled for each of the participating time zones.

The objective of the student leadership class is to equip learners with skills on how to find and convince sponsors, attracting clients and organizing networking events. Blockchain engineering, on the other hand, will teach students how to create a blockchain network, developing smart contracts and exchange platforms. Lastly, the business of blockchain module will have lessons on drafting business plans, token economies, and fundraising and most importantly, how startups can pitch their ideas to venture capital firms.

Patrick McLain, the COO of MouseBelt, believes that more universities should apply for their program. He mentioned that the new University Program will have a bigger impact than the previous initiative. McLain concluded by stating that they are willing to accept up to 200 institutions provided they have a minimum membership of five students.

As of now, MouseBelt University is the biggest alliance of university blockchain societies in the world. It offers both financial and educational support with the aim of increasing blockchain awareness in institutions of higher learning.
