Inspirational mentors, guided independent studies, hands-on experience with technology, insightful keynotes of the female leaders in the field and intensive discussions with energetic group was an amazing learning experience.”

“DLT Talents helped and supported me with my first steps around topics such as DLT, Blockchain, NFTs, Metaverse, and Web3 through encouraging mentors, lively exchanges with other talents, and inspiring keynote speakers. As soon as I understood the basics, I couldn’t wait to spread my wings and take up a new challenge at work around the Metaverse.”
“DLT Talents is an awesome program to dive deep into distributed ledger technologies and their applications. It lives from the exchange with other participants and is flexible regarding the level of detail one want to achieve. For me, the diverse network is the most valuable part of DLT Talents.”
“The DLT Talents Program was an excellent starting point for me to learn about the blockchain industry.
