Lovleen Bhatia, an IIT-BHU alumni exited his earlier venture to start Edureka in mid-2011. Lovleen partnered with Kapil Tyagi, an IIT Bombay alumni, to co-found this venture. [2] Bhatia and Tyagi started off the company from a small office in Noida, with just 4 employees and an investment of Rs.1.5 crore. [3]

The company launched its first pilot project to the final year students at ABES Engineering College in Ghaziabad, in mid-2011.

A two-month training program was organized in partnership with a few Bangalore-based software companies and focused on mobile app development courses.

Working professionals from the industry were its first instructors.

Over the next eight months, Edureka added 30 new instructors from the industry and trained around 1,200 students.

Within a year Edureka had shifted its complete education online, and in June 2012, Edureka had 15,000 students from across the globe registered for their online Android development course.

Edureka shifted its base from Noida to Bengaluru in 2012 where they set up a small office in Indiranagar.

Further in 2013, they expanded their office and relocated to Sigma Tech Park in Whitefield, Bengaluru.


Edureka has partnered with organizations like PMI as its registered education provider [4] and Talend [5] to provide certifications in project management and big data.
