Academy School For Blockchain Partners with Science Blockchain Incubator to Better Educate the Workforce for the Blockchain Economy
The partnership brings together prominent leaders in Blockchain development to train, empower and advance blockchain developers.
Science Blockchain, the blockchain incubator from startup studio Science Inc. today announced a partnership with the Academy School for Blockchain to address the biggest hindrance to the expansion of the Blockchain Economy: lack of software and system developers with Blockchain expertise.
“The Academy School for Blockchain has the best plan we’ve seen to increase the number of qualified Blockchain software developers from the current 5,000, out of 18.5 million software developers,” said Science Blockchain Founder Greg Gilman, “Science is going to be funding and creating many new Blockchain companies via our incubator. That translates to hundreds or thousands of developers that we will need just in and around Santa Monica and Los Angeles over the coming years.
“Both Science and Academy know increasing the quality, quantity, and diversity of software developers who can competently create, integrate and replicate Blockchain applications and businesses are and will be, for years to come, some of the most desirable hires in the world. Academy has a renowned faculty, and Science has what could be the fastest growing demand for great developers.”
Jason King, co-founder of the Academy School for Blockchain, points to a potential slowdown and bottleneck in the rapid growth of the Blockchain economy. “Currently, for every 14 blockchain projects approved in corporations, 13 of these cannot find adequate Blockchain developers to fill out the team, creating immediate cost overruns and project delays. Our instructors are some of the top developers in Blockchain, who normally are too busy creating the future for their companies to assist a new company or train a new student, and we are honored to have them with use for this new journey.”
King’s co-founder, Dr. Moe Levin, adds, “nine out of ten startups will fail, but that’s just startup culture. A business is not going to be successful just because it has blockchain involved in it. But some of these small startups today will be huge breakout companies. They will be the Googles, Facebooks, Twitter and Snapchats of tomorrow, making a huge impact on the world.”
Science Blockchain’s ICO is currently underway, and while the composition of its portfolio is evolving, it will provide documentation of its specific educational needs to Academy, creating a key feedback loop.
