Coding Ninjas - Target Market Size

Coding Ninjas aims at providing best-in-class quality skills and knowledge to college students and professionals who want to learn programming and reskill their existing skill set.

How was Coding Ninjas Started?

State of education is appalling in India and is not at par with the ongoing technological advancements. When Ankush Singla was hiring for Facebook in India, he realised that college students were unemployable due to the lack of appropriate skillset. That was the turning point for him, soon after he decided to do something about it. Given his domain expertise and his zeal to bring a revolution, he felt he is in the best position to do it.

"Starting the discussion from a single room with a few trusted and talented students, to a family of 120+, the growth of Ninjas is only inevitable with the growing number of students from pan India associating with us every day", says Coding Ninja co-founder Ankush Singla.
