Boston, MA – November 19, 2020 – Algorand, a world-class blockchain powering secure and efficient frictionless exchange, today announced the Algorand Partner Program (APP), designed to build and curate a partner ecosystem that enables and delivers Algorand-based products to market faster, easier, and with end users in mind. APP participants can differentiate their services and expand their business in the private and public sector with organizations at different stages of their blockchain journey: from those exploring blockchain’s potential to those already working on blockchain projects.
Program participants benefit from unique access to resources and support in building and delivering their Algorand-based offering. Additionally, they get access to the exponentially growing market of organizations seeking resources to develop or adopt Algorand-based solutions. The initial list of companies accepted in the APP includes:
"As organizations, central banks, and governments begin to leverage blockchain to transform the way they create value and facilitate economic exchange the demands to provide organizations with support, resources and professional services are increasing exponentially," said W. Sean Ford, COO of Algorand, Inc. "From DeFi startups to traditional financial institutions across a variety of sectors and geographies, Algorand's Partner Program will help companies navigate their path to building enduring value through blockchain adoption."
Some of the APP participants, such as Applied Blockchain and IntellectEU, have recently introduced new applications built with Algorand technology.
"Algorand’s advanced technology is best-in-class for financial products and services of the future,” said Chris Kelly, Product Manager at IntellectEU. “Having seen Algorand’s commitment to building out the ecosystem and supporting its users, we are excited to be a part of the Algorand Partner Program as it will open up new opportunities for us and our clients as we build next-generation blockchain solutions.”
"We have been working with the Algorand team for almost a year on a number of initiatives, and we have found them to be one of the most professional teams in our field,” said Adi Ben-Ari, Founder and CEO of Applied Blockchain. “We look forward to deeper collaboration through the partner program, making it easier to define a clear track to building success for our company and our clients on blockchain."
Algorand plans to expand its program, adding more partners globally to facilitate integrations with enterprise, governments, and financial institutions that leverage Algorand blockchain. This will include select consulting firms, system integrators, software development firms, infrastructure and complementary service providers, which provide the capabilities to enable and ensure success of Algorand’s adoption.
