Himanshu Aggarwal, an entrepreneur with over 10 years of experience in the EdTech industry, is the co-founder & CEO of multi-million-dollar company Aspiring Minds, a job credentialing company gaining prominence for creating a merit driven talent ecosystem and helping companies in building a quality workforce.

Moonshot Junior Inc., a Silicon Valley-based, EdTech start-up specializing in an entrepreneurial and innovation-centric program for children, is pleased to welcome Himanshu Aggarwal as an advisor and lead investor.
“The rate of change in the world is accelerating, it is changing the nature of work, and making new skills and capabilities in high demand. I believe the EdTech space is going to be disrupted many times over in the coming decade and would be led not by traditional education setups, but by scalable, measurable, result-oriented initiatives such as Moonshot Jr. Moonshot Jr is training young minds not in skills but in the mechanisms to acquire new skills and capabilities quickly – the art of learning. There are early signs that the healthy blend of new skills, new age paradigms (eCommerce, social media, mobile apps, etc.), and entrepreneurship has been very valuable to their students.
The idea, a dedicated and hardworking team led by Alok – a focused and proven CEO in Silicon Valley and most importantly the progress they have made in a handful of months has all the ingredients of this being an astounding success for its investors.”, said Himanshu.
Himanshu holds a B.Tech. in Computer Science and Engineering from the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology (IIT, Delhi). His crisp and impressive resume boasts larger accomplishments. He started his career as a software engineer, followed by a venture-funded startup, Aspiring Minds, driven by product innovation – revolutionizing the talent assessment space with Artificial Intelligence. Aspiring Minds went on to be a global business, helping millions of students across 4 continents and working with 1000s of corporate customers including 100+ fortune 500 companies.
Alok Jain, Moonshot Junior CEO, and co-founder, a seasoned entrepreneur with a unique vision, is delighted to have Himanshu’s association at an early stage.
“Our visions are similar for youngsters. At Moonshot Jr, we focus on students’ future preparedness. Himanshu is also helping college students and career seekers in getting scientific job readiness feedback and earning industry-recognized credentials to find appropriate career opportunities through his company. As an investor and a market expert, he brings his expertise and experience to the table. His contribution will help us in taking that giant leap and positioning ourselves as the market leader when it comes to children’s education,” said Alok Jain.
