Education, once characterized by conventional classroom model, has transformed into learning that is online, on-demand, and self-paced. The global E-Learning market is forecasted to reach $325 billion by 2025 and with a population of 1.2 billion, India is among the fastest-growing one. The rapid spread of mobile and expansion of the internet coverage has facilitated e-learning integration throughout the country.
India possesses one of the largest young population in the world, however, most of them are inadequately skilled for jobs, primarily in the engineering field. As per the national employability report from a Delhi based employment solutions firm – 80% of Indian engineers are not employable for any job in the knowledge economy, with no changes being observed in the employability trends in the past nine years. Despite high demand, the college education system in India is low quality and outdated with numerous engineering colleges which have mushroomed in the past decade often lacking basic levels of infrastructure and faculty. Once these engineering students go out in the job market they often lack the primary skills to be employed.
India's leading online education solutions provider, Ekeeda is trying to make engineering students – industry ready and competent on a global scale. With the help of top-quality authoritative content and cutting edge digital tools, Ekeeda is assisting students, especially from smaller towns and cities to learn industry-specific skills and bridge the employability gap to find a better paying career.

Ekeeda was founded by renowned educationist Prof. Mahesh Wagh. Although being a bright student from childhood, Mr. Wagh overcame numerous challenges to complete his education and become an industry-ready engineer. Prof. Wagh always believed that if Indian students will receive the quality education they can produce miracles. After getting valuable industry experience working with Tata Consultancy Services, Mr. Wagh started his own coaching institute in 2009 with a goal of dispensing quality education to students at an affordable rate.
Mr. Wagh realized that a coaching center would not be enough to reach out to all the students due to challenge such as reach, standardization and cost. As an alternative to this, Mr. Wagh launched Ekkeda.com with a vision to harness technology to provide quality education at an affordable rate.
