Build a career in your dream software startup

A community-led learning platform that prepares you for a rewarding career in the fast-growing startup ecosystem. 

Why we created NextStop?

The job world is changing. New sectors are cropping up with unique requirements while the jobs in the existing sectors are undergoing a sea change. In fact, both technical and non-technical jobs of the near and far future will not be the same and the boundaries between these ‘distinct’ jobs will soon start blurring.

But, the sad truth is that current aspirants are not equipped to handle the ever-evolving requirements of these jobs. If not being ‘job ready’ is every aspirant’s roadblock, finding the right talent is every brand’s most significant need. It is an arduous task to find the right candidates for a plethora of roles. This talent crunch is real.

NextStop aims to be the platform that bridges this need.

Our first target is Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) because we live and breathe that world. We will be providing the best real-world courses designed by industry experts for candidates and the best candidates for brands.

How are we different?
