Geekster was established in October 2020 by founders Ankit Maggu and Sahil Miglani in Gurgaon, Haryana. The company aims to offer quality technical education to those eager to build a lucrative career in technology. Geekster was set up to bridge the skill gap created by lack of resources, geographical limitations and differences between college education and industry requirements.
“There is a huge gap between what employers’ eye and what candidates pursue. Once this is addressed and the candidates get the right skills in demand in the industry, it opens up a plethora of opportunities for the students. Geekster is trying to fix the same by giving top quality industry-relevant education to aspirants and with the pay-after-placement we are encouraging users to learn and widen their career horizon without any financial concern. We have been witnessing exponential growth in the number of users on our platform, and with the rising number of successful placements, we can expect climbing traction too,” said co-founder Maggu.
