Masai School, an edtech firm in India, has raised an unknown sum of money from 21 angel investors, including CRED Founder Kunal Shah and Paytm Founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma, among others.
Some of the key founders and CXOs of firms including as Paytm, CRED, Pine Labs, NoBroker, Delhivery, and Sharechat are among the investors, according to a release.
Speaking on this new development, Prateek Shukla, Co-founder and CEO, Masai School, said, “For an institute that strictly and solely focuses on outcomes, it is a great endorsement to have the right kind of industry leaders to help and support the market itself. With the advocacy and support from these stalwarts, bridging the gap between educational institutes and technology companies to meet real time industry requirements is not far away.”
Amrish Rau, CEO of Pine Labs said, “Coding schools such as Masai School have started to kick-start a movement altogether in the cohort-based courses market segment. We are all aware of the shortage in quality education for software and technology, and how hard it is for the technology and IT industry startups to hire the right talent even at entry-level positions. We want to enable this movement and help Masai lead this from the forefront.”
