Thinking of your next adventure?

Join early-stage startups

The most ambitious people in India work in the tech startup ecosystem. If you want to work towards defining the future of India, there's no better place to be.

Step up, be a business leader

Managing projects and allocating capital is hard. Leading people to success is harder. If you gain this superpower, you become immensely valuable to any business.

Start on your own, some day

Entrepreneurs take risks to solve problems. In doing so, they create value for customers, employees, the society and themselves. It's a beautiful, transformative journey.

Only to find yourself overwhelmed?

I don't want to quit work for an MBA!
What strategies and tactics do I use?
How can I show my abilities to all?
Where do I even start networking?
Am I good enough for the job?

Make that transition with full confidence.

All the benefits of an MBA, without the mountain of debt.

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.

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 learn from the very best.

Successful career transitions

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!"
