In conversation with Sunil Sharma, CEO, SquadX
Blockchain has started assisting in digital transformation for businesses. As a blockchain technology domain player, how has SquadX grown and adapted to the changes?
SquadX focuses on the emerging technology developments as well as trading them over B2B and B2C markets. Having expertise in blockchain, IoT, AI, and ML, we assist corporations in adopting substantial emerging technologies, and help them in becoming a part of digital transformation. We provide training in blockchain realm which not just alters the development aspect of a corporation, but in the organisational structure as well. SquadX has completed 3 years in supplying emerging technologies, and has reached approximately USD 3 million gross revenue in sales. Being a team of 25 skilful talents, we are currently
located across Pune, Bangalore, and Gurgaon.
Blockchain has started providing the full set of tools needed to learn, create, test, and deploy in businesses. Mean- while there are many complexities around implementation of blockchain. How does SquadX mitigate such complexities using your products and services?
The main reason why industries hesitate in adopting Blockchain is due to lack of clarity around ROI & implementation of Blockchain use cases. Also, it's very hard to find the right kind of talent in Blockchain right now. Particularly in training, through our initiative SquadX_learning Hub, squadX enables education platforms to provide practical learning for students & professionals through its expertise in Blockchain.

It is true that emerging technologies will power the future. In what ways does SquadX LearningHub has taken a step forward to up skill the masses?
LearningHub is exclusively intended for experimenting and identifying new methodologies of teaching. I believe that methods in training and teaching will drastically advance in the next five years. In a skill based future, the kind of learning or teaching methodologies that we use currently may not work then. Nevertheless, all learning courses on technology come with an expiry date where the content would not be relevant. LearningHub is a vision that promotes the idea of conceiving technical learning as an investment, so that folks can learn about the technology of tomorrow.
To become a domain player in this field requires proven cases of success stories. Kindly share one with us.
