Scaler (by InterviewBit), one of the fastest-growing tech education startups, today announced the acquisition of a Delhi-based education platform, Pepcoding, for an undisclosed amount to strengthen Scaler's business ecosystem. The acquisition will further accelerate growth and support across various business units, including strategy, product design, B2B enterprise, operations and instructor org. This is the fourth acquisition for Scaler; AppliedRoots, Coding Minutes, and Coding Elements were the other edtech brands acquired over the last two years.
With the acquisition of Pepcoding, Scaler aims to bring synergies between the two companies to strengthen its offering in the tech education space. As a strategic move, Pepcoding has merged with Scaler. Its co-founder, Sumeet Malik, has joined the startup as an instructor and content creator to help improve the learner experience, especially in the Low-Level Design (LLD) curriculum. Other Pepcoding employees have joined Scaler as full-time employees working across diverse teams. The Pepcoding team will also play a vital role in developing Scaler School of Technology, a newly launched 4-year residential undergraduate program in Bengaluru. As Scaler opens its doors to the first batch of students this academic year, the team's expertise will play an essential role in the building and execution of the program.
Abhimanyu Saxena, Co-founder of Scaler and InterviewBit, announced the acquisition: "We are delighted to welcome the PepCoding team to the Scaler ecosystem. Sumeet's team has demonstrated a unique ability to stay true to its core ability to transform the learning experiences of young engineering students. Their experience with undergraduate students will come in handy to our recently launched residential undergraduate program, the Scaler School of Technology. Pepcoding's diverse talent pool and Sumeet's extensive industry expertise will help accelerate the pace we are working towards achieving our vision and mission."
