Mesa School of Business has raised Rs 34 crore from Elevation Capital and notable angel investors such as Kunal Shah (Cred), Vidit Aatrey (Meesho), Abhiraj Bahl, and others.
Mesa School plans to build a cutting-edge, hands-on, and application-based curriculum, designed and delivered in partnership with startup leaders and potential future employers for a founding cohort of 60 hand-picked students, the company said in a statement.
According to Mesa, this will be a 12 months, full time PG program in startup leadership, based out of Bengaluru. At the end of the program, students will get access to opportunities for leadership roles at top startups and technology companies in the country. The founding cohort for the one-year PG program in startup leadership is set to commence in September this year.
The program will also focus on individual leadership growth for students with over 200 hours of leadership workshops with army veterans, communication and stage presence hackathons with coaches and theatre artists and 1:1 industry mentorship.
Venture capital firm Elevation Capital announced its eighth fund worth $670 million in April 2022. The firm has invested in over 150 companies across consumer internet, SaaS, fintech, consumer brands, edtech, healthtech and web3/crypto, and has offices in Bengaluru, Gurugram and Salt Lake City.
