Snehar Shah has been appointed as the new CEO for Moringa School, succeeding Audrey Cheng, the Founder of Moringa School.

Founded in 2014, Moringa School has grown from training a class of four students in its first Nairobi classroom to enrolling over 4,000 students to date across Software Engineering and Data Science bootcamps.

According to management, Moringa has so far proven an 84 percent success rate of job-seeking students employed within 12 months. In a survey of major tech employers in East Africa, a Computer Science degree combined with the Moringa bootcamp is the most attractive profile for those recruiting junior developers.

“I’m incredibly proud of the work the team at Moringa has done to date and I’m pleased that the next stage of our growth will be led by Snehar. He will lead Moringa through a period of rapid growth and continue to drive our vision that anybody can create their future. Under his leadership, Moringa will ensure that tech workers across Africa will access the skills and opportunities to build successful careers. We are delighted to have him on board,” said Audrey Cheng.

In addition, Moringa and Flatiron School (named one of the Best Coding Bootcamps 2019-2021), have announced their very first curriculum partnership in Africa. Moringa pioneered an inverted classroom model where students take control of their learning supported by Technical Mentors.

“Today marks a key milestone in Moringa’s journey having attracted top professional talent such as Snehar Shah and Flatiron as the leading established Global leader choosing us as their partner for expansion in Africa,” Sebastian McKinlay, Moringa’s Chairman.

“Having worked in Corporates in my early career gave me the necessary skills to add value to Startups that I have been doing over the past decade. Having had a successful exit from my first start-up in Telecom Infrastructure and making a significant impact in my previous role providing Solar lighting and TV systems to 300,000 households, I am excited for the next adventure with Moringa to build talent and opportunities in Africa through transformative tech-based learning experiences,” said Shah.

“This partnership with Flatiron is a stunning example of how a world leader in the Tech ecosystem can work with us as a local partner to improve the accessibility of the market-leading training and career management products.”

Students in Kenya who enroll in the February 14, 2022 Software Development Class Intake will be eligible to be selected to participate in the programme and interested students are encouraged to apply before applications close on February 11, 2022.

“We are excited to work with Moringa to support its use of our curriculum to support their mission to create the next generation of qualified software developers. We share their vision to build talent and opportunities for students through transformative tech-based learning experiences,” said Noam Mintz from Flatiron School.
