Techpreneurs drawn from the East African Community bloc region are set to benefit from a new training program in blockchain technology to help boost their businesses.
CapitalSavvy, Ugandan investment management and advisory firm unveiled the training program, last Friday in Kampala, in partnership with other local and international partners.
“The program will entail a robust curriculum aimed at providing the relevant formative skills and crucial concepts to successfully build applications on the BSV Blockchain protocol”, said CapitalSavvy Chief executive officer, Reginald Tumusiime.
Tumusiime said students will learn in a self-paced manner, on the BSV Blockchain Academy learning platform using their login details.
“Every fortnight, a one-hour live coaching and Q&A will be scheduled, coinciding with the physical meet-ups,” he added.
Application for the training is underway and the program will kick start on 3rd October 2022, with an initial cohort of 50 participants for the 10 weeks semester.
The first cohort of the Blockchain Innovation Program is fully sponsored, where an application fee of $USD 50 shall be required. This fee will be refunded to unsuccessful applicants, according to Tumusiime.
Tumusiime added that the program is aimed at equipping entrepreneurs with relevant web 3.0 developer skills.
The best techpreneurs, according to Tumusiime, will be selected after the 10 weeks and sent to London- the UK, for further accelerator program with Satoshi Block Dojo, a global Blockchain incubator.
“The rest of the techpreneurs in the program will be exposed to several projects within the BSV Blockchain ecosystem where they will have opportunities to be gainfully employed”, he stressed.
