ATLANTA, Nov. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Kingsland University today announced their partnership with Legacy Capital to deliver Kingsland’s internationally recognized Blockchain Developer courses in Mauritius. Legacy Capital is a fintech management consultancy specializing in bringing unique economic opportunities to Mauritius and the greater African region. Kingsland will offer their full course list in Mauritius, including blockchain developer and executive education courses.
“Blockchain is the great economic enabler of our time. There’s a seismic shift happening in global economies right now and no regions in the world will benefit from that shift more than those in Africa. We founded Kingsland to bring disruptive tech skills education to globally underserved regions, and so partnering with Legacy Capital to bring our blockchain education programs to Mauritius is an exciting step,” said John Souza, CEO and Founder of Kingsland University School of Blockchain.
Kingsland’s blockchain developer training programs upskill existing full stack software developers with the skills necessary to build exciting blockchain projects that are transforming the future of every industry – from agriculture, to medicine and beyond. Kingsland also provides training programs for executives and government officials who want to understand the critical challenges and impacts of blockchain on their organisations and regulatory frameworks.
“Mauritius has really led the way in terms of regulation and governance in the blockchain space, particularly in relation to financial applications of the technology, and they’ve set up support for blockchain and crypto-tech businesses to establish themselves in Mauritius, so there’s a lot of potential for new opportunities and jobs growth,” said Robert H. Kim, Director of Global Development for Kingsland.
Legacy Capital, who have a long and successful history of bringing businesses to Mauritius, see blockchain as a key to opening up the future of the African region. With an impressive arena of resources that will become available with our partnership, there is no doubt that there will be high demand for the courses that will be offered. Legacy Capital is in the process of getting the approval from the respective authorities for a partial refund on the course fees.
Legacy Capital welcomes the initiative from The Financial Services Commission in relation to the report published by The Fintech and Innovation-Driven Financial Services Regulatory Committee in Mauritius. By partnering with Kingsland University, Legacy Capital is setting the pace for Mauritius within the African Region to be the pioneer in the delivery of courses which will revolutionize the fintech and blockchain industry. Moreover, the Mauritian Government has recently announced its unparalleled support to promote this industry to establish itself as a gateway to Africa.
“Mauritius is uniquely positioned to be a hub for fintech in Africa. Cryptocurrencies and blockchain will have a lasting impact on the region’s social, cultural, and economic outputs – but in order to capitalize on the enormous potential of the technology, we need widespread education initiatives. That’s why we’re partnering with Kingsland, and their world-leading programs to train blockchain developers,” said Rouben Chocalingum, CEO of Legacy Capital.
Courses in Mauritius are scheduled to start in 2019.
