Updated: Mar 18, 2021
The fledgling Swiss blockchain-business needs a steady stream of new talent. Crypto-bank Seba has reached out to specialized universities and launched a dedicated educational platform to form the future staff of Crypto Valley.
Amid the cries for help from corona-embattled fintech firms in the Zug region, the news is more than welcome: the fintech industry needs new talent to emerge and is willing to provide knowledge to get them going.
Seba Bank, the crypto-firm based in Zug, has teamed up with three specialized university departments and launched a dedicated education platform, according to a statement released on Friday. Sebaversity is now ready to equip the next generation of crypto-experts with the necessary knowledge.
Expertise From University Labs
The three partners of Seba Bank are the Frankfurt School Blockchain Center, the Swiss Fintech Innovation Lab of University of Zurich and Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts. Sebaversity addresses both individuals and companies, which can have their employees trained on blockchain and crypto currencies.
«The need for training in the area of blockchain is enormous,» said Thomas Puschmann, the director of the Swiss Fintech Innovation Lab. «Sebaversity, initiated by the first crypto-bank with a Finma license, makes an important contribution here.»
Julius Baer as Launch Customer
Julius Baer private bank was the first firm to offer a series of courses for its employees in April. The knowledge provided by Sebaversity is based on the practical experience of Seba Bank and the expertise provided by the participating universities. It is a non-profit offering available both online and offline.
