Newman Capital is pleased to announce the partnership with Blockchain Academy Group to help university students to prepare and get ready for a Web3 career in the future. Blockchain Academy Group is a student-driven non-profit organization dedicated to nurturing the next generation of Web3 professionals in Hong Kong. As a leading Web3 venture capital firm, Newman Capital believes talent is one of the most important growth drivers for the industry, and inspiring young people and having them Web3-ready could be a key to ensuring long-term healthy growth for the industry.
The two sides will kickstart the partnership by launching a series of events, including on-campus industry insight-sharing sessions, career talks, Web3 founder fireside chats, networking sessions, and more. Senior executives from Newman will be able to share first-hand experience with students while participating students can leverage Newman’s Web3 knowledge and network to gain the necessary experiences before they start their Web3 careers. At the later stage of the partnership, Newman Capital will provide top-tier students with internship opportunities to help them launch their Web3 careers.
Adrian Lai, Founder and Managing Partner at Newman Capital, said,
Hong Kong has been one of the most important Web3 centers in Asia. Providing the young generation proper exposure and opportunities in Web3 perhaps is the most critical task for us to maintain the city as a key Web3 innovation hub. We are glad that our Web3 expertise and network can help students in a meaningful way and provide guidance for their Web3 career path.
Ken, Director at Blockchain Academy Group added that,
with Newman Capital joining Blockchain Academy’s industry alliances, we can provide students with more industry insights from the professionals, such as the current trend of blockchain industry development and how venture capital selects the projects. This will be beneficial to students who are ready to step into Web 3.0 or those who are already in Web 3.0, and seeking opportunities. We hope the collaboration will help our students success in their career path in Web 3.0.
