The New Delhi-based firm was recently in the news for providing software training in 2010 to Edward Snowden, who exposed the large-scale global surveillance by the United States government. The company expects a number of web-entrepreneurs to choose this new course that will be delivered from its Delhi and Dubai offices.
"Despite IT training being a mature industry, we are discovering that there are many unmet needs especially of non-IT people," said Rohit Aggarwal, CEO and founder, Koenig Solutions. At a time when two startups are founded everyday in India, institutions are seeing an opportunity to train budding entrepreneurs.
Bangalore-based coworking space Jaaga will soon launch a one-year formal course called Jaaga Study to add required technical skill sets to entrepreneurs, for a fee of 1.2 lakh.
Launched earlier this week, Koenig's course costs $5,900 (Rs 3.65 lakh) and will cover fundamentals of web designing, Adobe Photoshop, and web marketing concepts such as Search Engine Optimisation and Pay-per-click, the company said.
As a part of the course, the entrepreneur can host the website on Koenig server and create a $500 Google AdWords account, the company said.
