Are you a college student from a smaller Indian city looking for job opportunities? Check out PrepInsta, the most popular website in India for placement preparation. Founded in 2018 by Aashay Mishra and two others, this EdTech firm is changing the way students prepare for the workforce.
Aashay Mishra is a co-founder and COO of PrepInsta. He completed his education in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Vellore Institute of Technology.
PrepInsta is a website that helps students prepare for job interviews. They provide various programmes for building skills, coding tutorials, and interview coaching. PrepInsta Prime is a solution that offers skill-based learning to reduce the skills gap in India. This platform is a one-stop shop for all phases of the placement process run by reputable companies.
PrepInsta Technologies is an online learning platform that offers over 200 courses. It charges around Rs. 6,000 for a yearly subscription, which is much less than what other education companies charge for similar courses.
Big companies like Microsoft, Amazon, Cisco, Adobe, and Google along with service-based companies such as TCS, Accenture, Capgemini, Hexaware, HCL, and Infosys have recruited students from PrepInsta.
The founders of PrepInsta, Aashay Mishra, Atulya Kaushik, and Manish Agarwal, were selected for Forbes’ 30 under 30 lists in 2023 for their creative ideas and services.
PrepInsta started with only Rs. 99 and has now become a thriving business with 2.25 lakh active subscribers. It is a bootstrapped business with an EBITDA of 40%. The company is expected to earn revenues of Rs. 20-25 crores this year, which is four times more than the previous three years.
The startup says that it’s one of the only Ed-tech companies to make a profit in its first year of business, which started in 2020.
