ODEM is the first-of-its-kind on-demand education and employment marketplace that directly connects students, educators, institutions and employers to meet the demands of a rapidly changing employment landscape. Earlier this year, the partnership with Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) allowed ODEM to make history by providing their 2019 graduating class the opportunity to be the first students in Canada to receive diplomas on the blockchain. Continuing from the success, ODEM has brought on new team members, Sasha Soheili and Andreas Vlachos, who will carry on ODEM’s mission of making education and employment more accessible, affordable, transferable and verifiable in Europe and North America.
