Mumbai: India Accelerator (IA), a seed-stage accelerator program has signed an MoU with India Blockchain Alliance (IBA). Under the MoU, IBA will add IA’s Campus Entrepreneurship program to its CoE across the globe.

The tie-up aims to provide students, faculty and startups access to IBA and IA’s ecosystem through the Campus Entrepreneurship Program.

Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionize many aspects of India’s financial, social, and governance systems. India Blockchain Alliance plays a crucial role in transforming not only India but also global entities.

IA focuses on leveraging the IBA tie-up and its network to other countries like Australia, Malaysia, Kenya, South Africa, Europe, the USA and Canada.

“We are excited with this coming together of two known stalwarts in their respective field and are looking forward to making a positive impact to the startup ecosystem for Blockchain and Industry 4.0. We believe that this strategic partnership will lead to creating a viable alternative for students to look at entrepreneurship as a viable career option,” said Sanjoy Sarma, Head of IA Campus Entrepreneurship Program.

“Our collaboration with IA is completely in sync with IBA’s vision to encourage the responsible adoption of blockchain technology across sectors. We believe that IA’s network of experienced mentors and trainers in new-age technology will also add value for our students to be industry-ready. This will open more avenues for young entrepreneurs to disrupt the industry with their innovative startup ideas,” said Raj Kapoor, Founder – IBA.

As part of the partnership, IBA and IA will offer a joint curriculum that will train both faculty and entrepreneurs in creating successful Blockchain startups. The selected startups will also get the opportunity to work with IA Labs – a Career Accelerator for young students that brings disruptive digital learning solutions to future tech skills.

“With the addition of Blockchain learning programs to the existing full-stack development, cloud and DevOps engineering, will help us accelerate our mission to make campus’s industry-ready,” said Maninder Singh Bawa, Co-Founder and CTO – IA Labs.

Furthermore, IA will leverage IBA’s global footprint and focus on creating, nurturing and accelerating all the startups that come out from CoE. Under the Campus Entrepreneurship Program, IA and IBA are projecting to accelerate at least 100 startups per year.
