February 17th, 2022 - The Algorand Foundation is delighted to announce the partnership with the Frankfurt School Blockchain Center to support the next two cohorts of the DeFi Talents programme under the patronage of Professor Philipp Sandner.
“With our stringent programme and remote group coaching sessions, we are empowering our participants to build a footprint in the DeFi space and become entrepreneurs, technologists, lawyers, investors, or multiplicators in this field,” explains Philipp Sandner. “We are excited to have Algorand Foundation as a partner to support the next generation of DeFi natives on their career path.”
The free 18-week long online mentoring programme includes three phases: Learning the fundamentals of blockchain, getting to know stakeholder domains and a final deep-dive phase. Participation is by application only. Accepted students will learn about the Algorand protocol next to other blockchain domains and gain deep knowledge of the DeFi space.
“The Algorand Foundation University Programme is thrilled to be part of the DeFi Talents programme,” emphasizes Hugo Krawczyk, Principal Researcher at Algorand Foundation and Head of the ACE programme.
“It is critical to have educational programmes for diverse audiences that can provide hands-on learning experiences for young professionals.”
The Algorand Foundation is proud to support this project with funding through the Algorand Foundation Grant programme. For more information about the DeFi Talents programme and where you can apply, please visit https://my.defi-talents.io/. The application deadline is March 20th, 2022.
