Neo Global Development (NGD) has announced it has joined the MouseBelt Blockchain Education Alliance, a consortium of blockchain industry entities that seek to support education, research, and entrepreneurship at universities and beyond. Other partners in the Blockchain Alliance include Mastercard, Binance X, Ripple Xpring, Ontology, KuCoin, plus more.
In a February 2020 BLOCKTV interview, Ashlie Meredith, university program director of MouseBelt, said, “[companies in the Blockchain Education Alliance] agree that for technology like blockchain to reach mass adoption, we need to be working together.” Through coordinated efforts, the Alliance will seek to increase hands-on blockchain developer education at the undergraduate engineering level.
Current MouseBelt university program partners include institutions such as UCLA, Penn State, Tufts, National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), Duke, and the University of Florida, among many other universities.
As a member of the Alliance, NGD intends to share its experience related to building a blockchain, running an ecosystem, creating course curriculum, and conducting online and offline courses.
In the same BLOCKTV interview NGD associate manager, Denis Suslov, said, “[NGD felt] it was very important to connect with the Blockchain Education Alliance because they know student groups in major universities in the US and Europe. If we want to give more exposure to our courses and documentation on development to top talent, it was very helpful for us to join the alliance.”
Suslov also conveyed NGD’s potential interest in participating in or hosting hackathons in collaboration with MouseBelt’s blockchain accelerator and startup studio.
