Rise In, a pioneering education platform, has taken a significant step towards enhancing its Web3 talent pool by acquiring BlockBeam, one of the foremost Web3-focused ed-tech companies in the United States.

A Bright Future for Web3 Development

With the acquisition of BlockBeam, Rise In will welcome approximately 1,000 new Web3 developers from the US to its platform, a significant feat in a region known for its competitive talent pool.

BlockBeam, with its headquarters in the United States, has earned its reputation as a pioneer in Web3 education. What sets BlockBeam apart is its extensive network of partnerships with over 90 university blockchain clubs, including prestigious institutions such as the Princeton Blockchain Club, Blockchain at Berkeley, and Harvard Blockchain.

By uniting their efforts, Rise In and BlockBeam are set to become a driving force in nurturing the next generation of web3 professionals.

Gulcan Yayla, Co-founder and CEO of Rise In shared her thoughts on the acquisition, emphasizing the shared passion for structured talent training:

“We are passionate about providing a structured and easy-to-follow onboarding process for developers, leading to a meaningful career.”

Seeing the same passion in the BlockBeam team and their close relationship with the university clubs helped us make the acquisition decision. This way we’ll help our partners reach some of the best web3 talent in the world.”

Rise In Empowers Developers and Students

Rise In, conceived in 2021 as Patika.dev but officially launched as Rise In in September 2023, has already made a significant impact with its e-learning and bootcamp management platform, attracting over 200,000 developers from the mainstream Web2 world and onboarding more than 25,000 of them from over 90 countries into Web3 through online courses and bootcamps.

These programs range from introductory blockchain training to specialized technical courses in Solidity, Rust, and Substrate development, all offered free of charge thanks to Web3 protocols that support the initiative.

Through partnerships with blockchain ecosystems like Solana, BNB Chain, Polkadot, Sui, Internet Computer, and the Ethereum Foundation, Rise In courses and bootcamps are free for developers. Furthermore, Rise In helps its successful graduates find integration into developer grants, bounty programs, hackathons, job opportunities, and venture-building support.
