Knolskape, a Singapore-headquartered immersive gamification and simulation software company focusing on talent transformation, has come forward to partner with the State government to promote FinTech (financial technology) education.

“Being ranked among the top 20 gamification companies in the world, we will extend our domain knowledge to promote simulated environment and experiential learning in A.P.,” founder and CEO of Knolskape Rajiv Jayaraman told The Hindu on Saturday.

Knolskape, which was founded eight years ago to promote gamified learning, journeys, experiential assessment centres, any time anywhere learning, and talent analytics, has its presence in India, China, and the Middle East, besides Singapore.

It has devised digital curriculum for Axis Bank Stanchart, IDFC, Kotak Life Insurance, and other financial institutions.

Mr. Jayaraman said that by making use of experiential learning products, they would help organisations attract, grow, and retain talent. He said that the Fortune 500 companies, leading governments, and top-10 B-schools use their products and solutions for on-boarding, training, assessments, and talent engagement.

Exuding confidence that Visakhapatnam would emerge as a top FinTech hub in a short period with Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu’s resolve to bring global players to the City of Destiny, he said that they would extend their expertise in capability building and popularise digitalisation and cashless transactions post demonetisation.

“There is buzz all over the world on Visakhapatnam emerging as an investment destination. The A.P. government’s vision is to be among India’s top three States by 2022. Skills development is a fundamental foundation block to enable this. We will certainly play a key role in digital transformation,” Mr. Jayaraman said.

He said Knolskape would bring the expertise of working with digitally advanced government in Singapore, where it had played a critical role in skill development. He predicted a bright future in banking financial services industry (BFSI) and FinTech for those pursuing management and engineering degrees.

We will extend our domain knowledge to promote simulated environment and experiential learning in A.P.
