“This initiative is a step in this direction wherein we combine our best-in-breed thought leadership and innovation with the hands-on academic experience of Idealabs to hone the skillsets of our young tech talent and prepare them for exciting career opportunities in the blockchain space.”
The first of its kind program in India offers hands-on experience on the students’ real-world implementation of blockchain. Reportedly, the course comprises beginner to advanced level content, including industry interactions, expert sessions, industry challenges, innovation programs, and placement opportunities.
