Started in 2014, Smartease (pronounced as “Smarties”) was set up with the aim of conducting hands-on oriented training that goes beyond stuffy theoretical knowledge. In our early days, we focused on maker-style workshops for educational institutions. As digital technologies evolved, Smartease has now shifted our focus to adult technology-based training. However, our focus on practitioner-based industry-relevant training has not changed at all. At Smartease, we pride ourselves in providing high quality training using our expertise in data science, analytics and blockchain.
Our vision is summarized as below.
- To provide high quality industry-relevant training
- To share our professional expertise and knowledge
- To keep up to speed with state-of-the-art technologies
