Our Co-Founder & CEO, Prateek Shukla was teaching with Teach For India during his pre-final year at IIT Kanpur and stumbled upon the education problem in India and how under-tapped India’s true potential is. During a vacation to Kenya and Tanzania a few years later, he met with the Chieftain of the Maasai Mara Tribe. He learnt about the robust skilling techniques the tribe follows to keep themselves always able and self-sustained.
Back in India, he realised that every technology company spends about 6 months in training their new recruits before they move on to contribute to the organisational goals. Finding an opportunity to help upskill Bharat, Prateek got Nrupul Dev and Yogesh Bhat together to start Masai School in June 2019. They set out to build a military-style coding institute, based on the 11-11-6 intensive training regime that runs for 6 days in a week from 11am to 11pm. The holistic program includes 1200 hours of hands-on coding, 100 hours of soft skills training, 100 hours of mathematics and more.
Since, Masai has grown at a staggering rate. With thousands of enrolled students, Masai School is leading the Outcome Driven Education Revolution in India with new courses like Data Analytics now part of our offering.
