The Six Industries that you will learn about​

Artificial Intelligence

Emerging Sector

In recent years, the growing crops of startups that leverage artificial intelligence and other advanced technologies have ascended dramatically. As a result, the VC funding and investments in these startups are becoming historically strong year over year. Despite slow VC deals due to the COVID-19 crisis this year, the interest in AI funding is seeing a sustained momentum.


Emerging Sector

fintech describes any company using the internet, mobile devices, software technology or cloud services to perform or connect with financial services. Many fintech products are designed to connect consumers' finances with technology for ease of use, although the term is also applied to business-to-business (B2B) technologies as well.

E Commerce & Marketplaces

Emerging Sector

One of the most significant changes that we saw in consumer shopping habits in 2020 was the rapid growth in popularity of e-commerce. Just a few months back, online shopping was considered unreliable by most individuals over 65. Almost overnight, however, it has become an essential practice. And numbers testify the future growth of e-commerce.
