CHENNAI: Inspired by Zoho University and its founder Sridhar Vembu’s effort in mobilising talent from polytechnics, Chennai-based FixNix, a Saas startup, has launched FixNix University.
FixNix University has been launched as a non-academic initiative to create talent to build security products by enabling the differently privileged cross sections of society.
The primary focus of the ‘FixNix University’ is to offer security & product building focused curriculum to the students from smaller towns and villages. It has already piloted the curriculum since January to groom its fresh graduates into product developers, security engineer and business analyst.
Executive chairman of FixNix Prof Subra said: “I have pledged mentoring support to FixNix a few years ago to help them ship world class security products, despite my busy schedule since I saw the immense passion to democratise the GRC product, a costly affair in enterprise security process product world. It was a pleasant surprise to see the focus on giving back to the society taking inspiration from the socially well proven tech school concept like Zoho University. Despite having all growth stage startup struggles, this marks the beginning of a new experiential learning process and we are confident to make a change in the way security is perceived through FixNix University.”
