Freshworks is a global leader in customer engagement software. They provide organisations with a diverse suite of SaaS solutions which are ready to go, easy to set up and use, and require minimal customization. Freshworks is currently valued at $1.5 billion in the global market.
The global market for SaaS developers is predicted to touch $94.9 billion by 2022. To make use of this opportunity, skilling of students in SaaS/web technologies is very pertinent since quality developers are very likely to be readily absorbed by the industry, which now faces a tremendous shortage of talent overall. Freshworks, as a leader in the domain, has put together highly practical and relevant courses for students, that will give them strong foundational and applicational skills.
SASTRA-TBl is a theme based incubator, a registered 'not for profit' society supported by strong, capable advisory body.
