The Pune-based edtech startup expects to enroll, train and provide placement to more than 10,000 people through this model, which it claims has already seen big traction since launch.
“This model will ensure that talent does not remain relegated to the background due to lack of financial resources…,” Jilani Shaikh, founder and chief executive officer at Blend Infotech, said. “It is our way to support the government’s will to create gainful employment for all.”
Blend Infotech said that it has trained more than 8,000 students in information technology, design and animation in the past decade or so. It has aspirants in various verticals—from python and full-stack web developers to digital marketers and graphic and UI designers.
Companies are relying more and more on technology and web, and the demand for such experts is increasing, Shaikh said. “Our vision is focused on quality assurance and delivering skilled software engineers to the market.”
