Geek Express received funding from LWAF (class of 2017-18), Seeders MBA (class of 2017-18) and matched by IM Capital.
Geek Express (GE) is an Edu-tech hub, that offers children and teens in-person workshops on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) topics through long-term tracks, camps, and single session courses. GE is planning on launching online workshops and the Makers Club for children to have a comprehensive offering and to bridge the gap between traditional curriculums taught at schools and the ever-increasing demand for STEAM skills related jobs. In addition, they require the children to save their projects so they can build their own digital portfolios.
