Working with North Texas school districts, community colleges and universities as well as Dallas County Promise, Kutty assembled a team to build a technology platform that will give students ownership of their academic transcripts and access to stackable, lifelong credentials. The benefit of a distributed ledger technology like Blockchain is that it allows employers and colleges to have instant verification of a multiple-source transcript. For convenience and security, that beats a paper transcript received in the mail. Once students grant consent, Greenlight gives employers and colleges the ability to see all credentials in one place. It’s like LinkedIn but with credentials verified by institutions.
