I’m curious, does foundation provide training for people living in NYC?
For things like;
Haskell, blockchain technology, cryptography, how to implement and distribute systems. Open protocols for systems, learn how to run pilots and so on…
NYC is clearly not a third world country but there is abundance of raw talent here. The best student in any country would be no match to someone who has been transplanted here at a young age, forced to struggle for years to close the cultural and linguistic gap. Just the sheer will,determination and drive would place such a person ahead of the pack.
I speak Russian, Tajik and Uzbek and can feel at home in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Russia. With the exception of Russia pretty much every other country on that list is a definition of a third world country.
Would be amazing if IOHK had a program running in NYC for people with special talents, skills, languages and exotic backgrounds to recruit and train. I’m sure there’s no shortage of universities here that would love to partner up with IOHK.
Ofcourse a determined, driven and focused person wouldn’t necessarily need any of it, and could get there on there own as well.
