Jigsaw Academy, an online school of Analytics, has secured $3 Mn (INR 20 Cr) funding from Manipal Global Education Services (MaGE) to expand its offerings to new markets.
With this, former Infosys veteran TV Mohandas Pai will join the advisory board of Jigsaw Academy.

We believe that there is a great potential in the analytics and big data training market in India and abroad. This funding that we have received will help us take bigger steps in the global market more aggressively while opening up more corporate training opportunities.”
