Masai School all set to revolutionise the ed-tech market after having raised over $2.5 million

Published

on

With participation from investment firms like India Quotient and AngelList India, Bengaluru based ed-tech start-up raised a pre-series fund of around $2.5 Mn led by Unitus Ventures. The company said that it will be using the fund to boost its classroom and digital infrastructure and enhance the quality of education for its students to make them job-ready. In addition to this, it will be expanding its services to help students equip with industry-relevant skills and attitude.

Masai School was founded in 2019 by Prateek Shukla, Nrupul Dev and Yogesh Bhat and it started off as a platform that trained tech aspirants in the development of web and android applications and helped them get good placements by leveraging its business associations with renowned companies like Samsung, UrbanClap, Instamojo, PayTm Money, etc.  However, the unique edge of Masai School is the fact that its key focus is on non-engineering students of tier 2 and tier 3 students who lack the means to afford education on software and get a job in this field. Thus, the ed-tech company treats its students as its business associates as well – it enables them to pay the course fee only after they get a relevant, high-paying job in the market. So far, the start-up is said to have placed over 80 per cent of its graduates at an average salary of around INRRs 6.6 LPA.

Located in Bengaluru and Patna, Masai has trained over 100 students across four batches with more than half of the students hailing from rural areas with non-computer science academics background considering the fact that, the core mission of the company is to provide the students from remote areas and small towns to kick-start a career in IT and tech industry.
