Here's an open secret...

You grow fast at good startups.

Startup teams are full of highly ambitious folks solving problems in novel ways. If you want to work towards defining the future of India, there's no better place to learn and grow in.

Startups don't care for degrees.

Early stage startups are small teams that need the job done. Given how hard they find it to hire good talent, they don't have the luxury to ask for degrees as long as you get the work done.

And they pay well. Very well.

Startups need ambitious and competent talent to grow fast. They have a hard time hiring. Given the funds raised and speed of hiring, they fight for good people by paying hefty salaries.

Make that jump with confidence.

Get the benefits of an MBA without the loans.

Solve 6 Real World Problems for Startups

Make decisions under pressure.

You walk into work every morning and it's like a fire hose of decisions that need to be made, often without enough information. How do you go into an ambiguous situation and get to the bottom of it?

On case weekends, you get 24 hours to work with your team to crack problems that startups out there are currently facing. Work through different opinions, different considerations, and rich perspectives to decide on the course of action that the company ought to take.

Working with colleagues across industries, functions, geographies and seniority levels is sure to change your worldview.
ICF Certified Coaches & Industry Mentors

Figure yourself out.

At Stoa, we believe that unless you master yourself, you can't master reality. And unless you don't master reality, it is hard to win in the world of business and value creation.

Figuring yourself out on your own is hard. Your friends, family and colleagues aren't incentivised to give you the hard feedback that you need to hear. This is where we step in.

Stoans get an opportunity to work with ICF Certified professional coaches and industry mentors who lead teams and businesses. Coaches prod you with the right questions, helping you think at a strategic level while mentors help you be ahead of the game at a very tactical level.
Buzzing Community of 200+ Alumni

Be where the action is.

When you're in a room with rising stars from different backgrounds, every conversation is pregnant with possibility, every event promises serendipity, and every collaboration offers you a chance to discover the real value you bring to the table.

The raw ambition in here is contagious. To add to it, the relationships, credibility and trust you earn within this community will root you for a lifetime of growth.
Job Referrals and Interview Prep

Leap ahead without fear.

Career transitions are often anxiety-filled. You want to be in a better place, moving towards your eventual goal but there's little certainty and a lot of inertia. Will you be able to move into a business role without an MBA? What stage of startups should you join? How does one pick the right co-founder?

No matter what your ambitious career goal, our coaches, mentors and referral network will help you get there—fast and stress free.

We've delivered on our promises.

"Be it the community, the business frameworks or exposure to opportunities, Stoa has given me more than what I had hoped for. I had heard that transitioning into start-up roles when you're from a non-tech background can be an uphill climb, but the team at Stoa made it so easy. Grateful!"

Ankit Ruparel, L&T InfoTech to WintWealth

"Stoa helped me correct a lot of mistakes I was making earlier. I got clarity on how to launch my own side project, create go-to-market strategies & solve business problems from first principles thinking."

Shraddha Joshi, Performics to Raise

Tanvi Raut Dessai, founded FilterCoffee.co

"Before Stoa School, I was in my comfort zone with a consulting job at Infosys. I am glad that Stoa School got me out of my comfort zone and helped me move to a product marketing role…with double the salary! The RoI I got from Stoa is crazy! "

Shobhit Tyagi, Infosys to Tekie.in

"Stoa gets you through the front door and gives you the extra push that you need. I was able to do a double shift - from a software engineering role in a financial services company to a product role in an edtech startup."
