(“EMURGO”), Today, it announced an educational partnership with the Institute of Blockchain® Ltd (“IBS”) to expand its catalog of blockchain education courses further and credential new blockchain professionals.

Through this partnership, EMURGO and IBS will organize and co-host blockchain education programs, including in-person workshops, webinars, curated learning modules, and other courses covering the latest trends and narratives in the Cardano ecosystem and the general blockchain industry for business professionals.

Singapore’s first blockchain institute, IBS, has trained over 2,000 learners from 9 countries worldwide. Its past corporate clients include Deloitte Touche, Singapore Customs Academy, Singapore Polytechnic Guild House, Singapore Institute of Retail Studies (Nanyang Polytechnic), and Securities Commission Malaysia & Fintech Academy.

“EMURGO is a firm believer in the power of education to serve as a foundation for success. Equipping people and organizations with the tools and knowledge to learn and use blockchain to build truly impactful products and services sets the stage for future success. With IBS, EMURGO will strive to train and credential more new professionals by leveraging our educational and network resources,” said EMURGO CEO Ken Kodama.

“The Institute of Blockchain has always believed that the path to adoption lies in collaboration and education. As the space evolves rapidly, industry participants must come together and leverage each other’s expertise and knowledge to remain at the forefront of innovation. IBS is very excited to partner with EMURGO to foster the next generation of Web3 innovators by providing them with the knowledge and platform to flourish,” said Institute of Blockchain President Ian Lee.

Currently, the opportunities for quality blockchain education are fragmented due to a lack of formal education programs from accredited institutions, an inconsistent schedule of boot camps, and unreliable independent learning options. This partnership aims to solve these pain points for busy professionals.

According to a LinkedIn company survey in 2020, Blockchain was listed as the top most in-demand skill by recruiters, and Web3 has been named as one of the top trends of 2023 by McKinsey.

The first co-organized in-person DeFi workshop is scheduled for January 2024 in Singapore’s CBD. More information can be found on EMURGO’s X account.
