Our second new portfolio company is a team from Toulouse Business School in Barcelona, EduNode. Edunode was born as a collective effort of the TBS Blockchain Club. When presented with MouseBelt's pitch competition, they decided to use their entrepreneurial spirit to make a real impact in the world. They set out to build the best team possible out of an original group of 30. The idea for EduNode came later from the 8 person team started meeting and identifying some of the problems in education.
Overview of Edunode
Up to 85% of job applicants lie on their CV. Universities are constantly contacted by employers to verify the certificates of their students. This process is manual, time-consuming and completely ineffective. EduNode solves these problems by allowing Universities to easily issue instantly verifiable certificates - eliminating fraud, and saving them time and money
By using Blockchain technology, our platform creates certificates that are:
- Instantly verifiable
- Instantly accessible
- Tamper proof
- Secure & digital
Universities using EduNode will also provide their students an app with a personal, verifiable profile of academic credentials, giving them a unique competitive advantage when searching for a job.
Lucas Gil, the CEO, explains:
EduNode has been born and raised in the MouseBelt University Program. Having been chosen means a lot to us and, together with MouseBelt, we are ready to boost our progress and start changing education for the better.
