Khandelwal would be responsible for driving growth through a mix of linear and nonlinear initiatives
Edtech startup Codeyoung has appointed Mohit Khandelwal as its chief growth officer. In his new capacity, Khandelwal would be responsible for driving growth through a mix of linear and nonlinear initiatives and would work closely with the founders to help the organisation scale from x to 10x in a sustainable way. This would involve opening up new revenue streams, optimising marketing spends, institutionalising processes, revamping ways of working, driving data-driven experimentation, and building up the organisation among other things.
“Codeyoung has just scratched the surface of what happens to be a nascent but potentially large global market. There is immense scope to grow multi-folds both within the domestic and international markets if planned in the right way. Word of mouth has always played a crucial role in the education space, hence the idea is to ensure razor-sharp focus on quality and customer satisfaction. The charter for the next few months would be to experiment with multiple new initiatives, implement data-driven decision making and stabilize end to end operations while building the organisation’s muscle power to drive and sustain multi-fold growth,” Khandelwal stated.
“In the short span of one year, Codeyoung has scaled from a 2 member team to a 50 member team. Mohit has been a crucial part of the team’s expansion and we are delighted to have him on board. We are working continuously to build a world-class curriculum and are confident that under Mohit’s leadership, our product would benefit children across the world,” Rupika Taneja, co-founder, Codeyoung said.
Founded in November 2019, Codeyoung offers programs for courses in coding and robotics to kids between 5-16 years of age in small groups. The curriculum is designed to equip kids with skills to create industry-standard programs on popular languages like Python and Java. The company has been able to engage 15000+ students globally in less than a year.
