EkoLance Upskills Web2 Professionals to Work in Web3


With the rise of blockchain technology, many Web2 professionals are looking to upskill and pivot their careers toward this emerging field. We help these professionals transition into Web3 successfully by providing them with the necessary resources and equipping them with the right skills to start working in the blockchain industry. Here is what the process looks like:

  • We source Web2 talents from blockchain hubs, tech hubs, universities, and from over 35+ community partners we have in the African continent, Turkey and LATAM.

  • We accept the best professionals through an application process where we pick the best professionals with previous experience in Web2, either technical or non-technical.

  • We train the accepted professionals on either technical skills ( Solidity Development or Smart Contract Auditing) or non-technical skills (Token Researching, Content Creation, Community Management, Web3 Marketing, and Sales). The skills each talent settles for depend on their interest and strength.

  • After the training, we provide work opportunities for these professionals. We achieve this through partnerships with blockchain companies. We connect them with internship opportunities, entry-level positions, or even senior-level roles based on their experience and skill level.
