The Tech School Shuts Down

The Tech School, a coding and electronics education institute for kids we had high hopes for, is officially in the deadpool with 'we have disintegrated notice' attached to its Facebook page. The startup, started back in 2013 by Shams Jaber and Niloy Anik, soon became one of the well regarded startups in the space with their vision to reinvent the education system and yield advancement in the field of technology. Industry people loved TTS for its unconventional approach to teaching technology to kids and quick results in producing great students. However, the startup died immature. So far we came to know, the reason behind the shut down is a unresolved dispute between the founders.

In an announcement to their Facebook page, TTS said:

TTS directors Shams Jaber, Luke Doyle, Kobir Uddin, Mujahidul Hassan Rana and Nafisa Mehboob will continue their work with the children separately and TTS director Neloy Hossain Anik will also continue his work separately from now on. Thank you for being with us all these days.[/blockquote]
