Mahesh is an Information Technology engineer by qualification and a teacher of Engineering Mathematics by passion. A former TCS system developer, he began his pursuit in teaching during graduation.
In 2010, he formally ventured into teaching with Infomatica, an academy for engineering education. By 2015, it had scaled to 7 branches across Maharashtra, with over 70 faculties. His experience with formal teaching at Infomatica made him privy to the challenges faced by students, such as lack of access to quality resources and relevant vocational training, thereby inhibiting overall employability.
For Mahesh, unlocking the potential of EdTech seemed the right way ahead and thus, in late 2015 he started testing variations of online delivery models, which has since culminated in Ekeeda, a venture started with the vision not only to facilitate learning, but also to accelerate careers of engineers.
At Ekeeda, Mahesh has been striving to create a learning ecosystem, channeling conceptual and skill-based learnings along with professional development.
