Seedstars and xMultiplied-advized Sai Srushti Group (SSG) officially announce their partnership to bring Seedstars Academy to India, launching Seedstars Academy Bangalore.

Interested startups can now apply here:

With 86% of professionals estimated to look for new jobs in the next 2 years, the Great Indian talent war is indeed on. Coupled with the emergence of metaverse and Web3, the demand for specialized roles is also expected to rise by almost 98% in the next five years, increasing employment opportunities to 12 million specialized jobs.

While data engineers, programmers, and developers continue to be at the forefront of digital transformation, new roles are springing up rapidly. Unfortunately, the disconnect between the world of academia and industry is becoming more evident today. One of the key reasons behind this problem is that while there are a large number of young graduates, the youth are not aware of the required skills that the new industries want. So, there is currently a wide skill development and employment gap.

Seedstars Academy was created to address the skills gap in both founders and talent pool. The talent incubator equips participants with 21st-century digital and entrepreneurial skills. It aims to prepare emerging and frontier market talents for the future of work and increase the number of founders with the skills to build high-growth companies.

The educational journey builds on the expertise of SSG and the implementation capabilities of 01Edu and Seedstars who jointly trained over 140,000 talents across the globe. Graduating software engineers have a 100% success rate of securing employment at high-profile tech firms including Apple, Google, Microsoft, and Facebook.

The academy will train 300 talents yearly on-campus and equip them with digital and entrepreneurial skills. It follows an innovative-yet-proven curriculum and pedagogy based on collective intelligence to recode learning and train full-stack developers.

Participants require no previous experience or degrees and can end the Seedstars Academy journey by working as coders for local or international companies or starting their own companies.

The impact that Seedstars Academy would create is job creation through an increase in high-growth companies; increased employment for youth in stable, decent jobs through upskilling from the program; and contribution to SDGs through an increase in innovative ventures focused on tackling them.

“We are thrilled to launch such an impactful partnership with SSG around tertiary education in India. Together, we believe we can unlock the potential of countless talents in the country,” shared Pierre-Alain Masson, Co-Founder of Seedstars.
