At the launch of academy Dr. K R Venugopal, Vice Chancellor, Bangalore University said, “Out of the 4 million IT workforce in India, approximately 1.5 million of them are based in Bangalore. The academy will provide a platform to connect developers and organizations, enabling them learn the blockchain technology and implement it in their own business verticals.

"Blockchain technology along with Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things (IoT) are expected to play central roles in the upcoming years across vast industries. The Indian government has spotlighted the potential applicability of blockchain technology to several use cases such as land registry, education and health records, and supply chain management," said E Venkatesan, Chief Executive Officer, Emurgo Academy.
