Standard Chartered Bank today announced the launch of the 2012 Mobile Ventures Fellowship (MoVe) programme geared towards developing talent for the financial services industry.
The bank launched MoVe as part of the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore’s (IDA) Company-Led Training programme aimed at developing new infocomm graduates and professionals in emerging and critical technologies.
According to a report issued by Standard Chartered, the bank will offer year-long MoVe fellowships to 20 budding Singaporean technopreneurs with the ability to demonstrate creative thinking, an aptitude for software engineering and an interest in building a career in mobile technology.
The programme is said to expose the young talents to the banking environment and spur their creativity in designing and developing next generation mobile services for the Bank’s customers.
“These young minds will innovate in Singapore to harness the power of the global mobile revolution for the rest of the world,” said Standard Chartered Bank’s chief information officer for consumer banking, Simon McNamara, in the report.
