Chintai and NUS Business School collaborate to shape the blockchain leaders of tomorrow
The collaboration includes a series of open talks with fintech practitioners as part of the Conversations with Chintai series.
Topics include Digital Assets, Blockchain Technology, Compliance, Entrepreneurship, etc.
SINGAPORE, Jan. 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — “Knowledge is power as long as it’s shared” is the driving principle behind the collaboration between Chintai, a Singapore Blockchain fintech startup, and the National University of Singapore Business School to develop industry-focused expert panel talks with M(BA) students in the emerging blockchain space, starting from January 2022.
The industry sharing series, named “Conversations with Chintai”, showcases practitioners in the fintech space, sharing their real-life experiences with the students honestly, openly, and candidly. Chintai was established in 2019 to promote the application of blockchain technology to modernise capital markets for banks, financial institutions, and asset managers. The company’s mission to democratise access to digital assets has progressed significantly ever since achieving a USD7.5 million seed funding led in May 2021 by B1 and Cryptology Asset Group and opening the Singapore office in November 2021.
The Conversations with Chintai series will cover topics to deepen the knowledge of students, including blockchain technology application for digital assets, compliance in digital assets, fintech entrepreneurship, etc. These open-talk sessions will take place once a month, running from January until April 2022. The experiential programme will allow students to fully manage, coordinate, and host these conversations with guidance from Chintai’s experts. The programme will provide them with the exposure and knowledge for a complete learning experience and will be driven by student committees from The Entrepreneur Club, The Finance Club, and The Technology Club.
“We approached NUS Business School because we believe company success is based on fostering individual and communal growth,” said Ryan Bethem, co-founder of Chintai. “Conversations with Chintai will give us the opportunity to contribute to the education and growth of some of the brightest minds of the next generation. We are honoured that NUS Business School has formed this partnership with us to help promote standards of business excellence that are a part of our greater mission to create a fair, transparent, and inclusive financial system.”
Joane Yuen, Head, M(BA) Experiential Learning, Graduate Studies, NUS Business School, added, “We are very excited over this sharing series as it is our first time collaborating with Chintai. This collaboration provides our M(BA) students with experience in organising Fintech-related events, while at the same time allowing them to learn directly from industry experts and giving them valuable experience outside of the classroom setting.”
Chintai has also committed to participating in the internship programme with NUS Business School students. As Chintai scales up in Asia, it will continue to play an instrumental role in the Singapore Fintech ecosystem as an active contributor.
