We firmly believe that regardless of identity, sex, race, location, or educational background, everyone deserves an equal opportunity to pursue a rewarding career in the financial industry. Through our blind hiring and skills-first approach, we hope to change the DNA of Wall Street.To achieve this, we harness the power of Web 3 technology, specifically smart contracts, to facilitate and oversee tamper-proof tests that quantify candidates' analytical capabilities. By leveraging this advanced technology, we ensure a transparent, auditable, and provable performance metric for participants. The most accomplished participants are duly acknowledged financially and reputationally based on their exceptional proficiency.
