EkoLance 2022 End-of-Year Update
For EkoLance, 2022 was a year of building. We effectively brought to life an exciting idea and laid the groundwork for bigger things.
EkoLance was founded in March 2022 to make the web3 industry more diverse by growing a network of high-quality professionals from emerging countries and offering exceptional recruitment services to blockchain companies. Through this concept, we have sped up the hiring process of web3 talents and reduced the time blockchain companies spend on assessment tests and multiple interviews. This idea ensures that brands can now focus on the day-to-day operations of their organization while we partner with them to provide professionals from our vast talent pool to meet the organization's unique needs.
We have accomplished a lot in our 9 months of existence. We have many achievements to be proud of within a short period, including training over 2,000 blockchain professionals, having a presence in 10+ countries, organizing the first-ever metaverse event in Decentraland, and receiving a grant from HUMAN Protocol to build the first decentralized job distribution platform, among others.
Before we go into the details of our accomplishments, we will like to thank our community members and partners. Without you, we won't be where we are now, and we are delighted to be able to share our success with you.
Web3 Training Programmes
Over the past 9 months, we have trained over 2000+ blockchain professionals in Blockchain content creation, Community management, and Solidity development, with 30% being hired immediately. So far, we have welcomed
250+ Solidity Developers
700+ Content Creators
550+ Community Managers
to our talent pool.
Come 2023; we will add more web3 training courses to the existing ones.
Since Ekolance's inception this year, we have partnered with over 10 blockchain companies to organize hackathons and hire professionals from our talent pool. From the community angle, we have partnered with 24+ blockchain communities to offer structured web3 training to their community members.
EkoLance in Large Blockchain Events and Conferences
Ekolance was present at 3 major blockchain events and conferences in 2022. One of those events was the European Blockchain Convention, the most influential blockchain event in Europe. Maria Eneva-Olms, the CEO of EkoLance, represented the company at the event and was part of 2 panel discussions.
The second event was Web Summit in Lisbon, the world’s biggest technology event. EkoLance was announced as an impact startup, and Maria pitched the company’s mission and plans for the future in front of a large audience of attendees. We also had a booth, where everyone curious could come and meet the team.
Lastly, we were present at the Crypto Assets Conference in Frankfurt. Maria Eneva-Olms, the CEO of EkoLance, was one of the panelists.
First Metaverse Event in Decentraland
EkoLance organized a metaverse event in Decentraland, and gave 104 attendees a glimpse of what training and recruitment will look like in the metaverse. The event, which took place in the EkoLance metaverse building built by MetaGameHub DAO, was a huge success. The participants appreciated the opportunity to learn in a new and immersive 3D environment.
EkoLance wants to build the first training and recruitment center in the metaverse. To do this, EkoLance has applied for a grant from Decentraland. The metaverse event was the first step of a long-term vision of building the first training and recruitment center in the metaverse.
HUMAN Protocol Grant
EkoLance received a grant from HUMAN Protocol to build the first decentralized job distribution platform for Web3 jobs.
The HUMAN grants program will help EkoLance fund, develop, and deploy this well-researched concept on the HUMAN protocol. The big idea is to develop a decentralized job distribution network that will be used by a closed group of about 50 000 Web3 professionals who have been trained and certified by us. Our corporate partners will have exclusive access to it and will be able to post work requests on chain.
This grant is the first step toward building this unique feature on the HUMAN protocol. We plan to add more features that will help the whole blockchain ecosystem as we move forward.
