“With this strategic investment, we would want to have the new partners act as a strong sounding board to help us build a more robust student curriculum, which aligns with the industry needs and expectations from the potential workforce,” the company said.
The startup claimed that in future it plans to onboard 100 more angel investors to “strengthen” its journey towards becoming “India’s largest outcome-driven higher education institute”.
Founded by Prateek Shukla, Nrupul Dev and Yogesh Bhat in June 2019, Masai School trains tech aspirants (class 12 passed) in full-stack web and Android application development.
Once these aspirants complete their 7-month course, the startup helps them get placed through its partner network, including Samsung, Sharechat, UrbanClap, Instamojo, Propelld, Vyapar, RevvSales, Lendingkart, Nobroker, among others.
