January 28th, 2022 - The Algorand Foundation today announces a grant award to Darshana Inc. The Algorand Foundation is excited to support Darshana, through our grant program, to support their development of a decentralized, community-driven platform that will connect tech talent with job opportunities.
Darshana empowers diverse talent by providing them a community-based platform where they can get access to jobs at great companies that are committed to diversity. Here, talent helps each other to enhance their capabilities and readiness to get better jobs. Darshana, leveraging the generous grant of the Algorand Foundation, wants to deploy an Algorand-based wallet login to provide a transparent way to sign agreements between talent and companies and the readiness to receive the incentives for community participation.
“An important part of our mission is to build Darshana together. That means expanding our borders to enhance inclusion, build a better platform, a better community, and better careers for individuals,” says Silvana Lopez, Chairwoman and Co-Founder, Darshana Inc.
“Algorand Ecosystem provides a strong value proposition in terms of platform components’; scalability, a set of flexible building blocks for incentive distribution and a wide ecosystem that generates responsible adoption further than Darshana’s,” says Natalie Gil, CTO and Co-Founder at Darshana.
“We’re excited to welcome Darshana to the Algorand Ecosystem as our latest grant recipient. Darshana represents a unique blockchain use case which will help to connect tech talent with great companies with fairness, based on inclusion without borders. Building on Algorand will enable Darshana to develop a community platform which is both scalable and affordable”. - Addie Wagenknecht, Head of Global Ecosystems and Technical Operations
