Hackberry goes online
Hackberry is an education company that offers unique programs that facilitate the overall development of 5 to 15-year-olds through fun and learning. We are on a mission to inspire and empower the next generation through coding, design, and entrepreneurship. Our courses include after-school and summer programs that may be customised as per individual requirements. We currently offer courses in coding and entrepreneurship. We've trained over 250 students in coding, and over 200 students have done the entrepreneurship program as well. We've run our programs across several schools in Mumbai, including Bombay International School, DSB International School, Fazlani L'Acedemie Global, and JBCN, Parel, and will soon be in several additional schools as well.
“Every child should be provided with the opportunity to discover his/her strengths and interests in multiple domains. The vision for Hackberry is to help children be well-rounded individuals who get to experience our unique educational programs.”

“In a rapidly changing, unpredictable world, the role of education is to prepare our kids for a future we can’t even imagine! We believe kids need to be equipped with imagination, creativity, problem-solving skills, curiosity, and adaptability to succeed. At Hackberry, we are committed to doing just that!”
When looking for an early-years coding program to enrol her 7-year-old daughter in, Ashni realised that while coding is taught widely at a young age across the globe, such programs weren’t available in India. In a few short months, she and her co-founder, Anisha, had created a program, piloted it with a group of kids, and launched Hackberry’s first coding program. Fuelled by the program’s success, Hackberry quickly expanded to offer courses in computational thinking and entrepreneurship. Ashni, along with the Hackberry team, is dedicated to developing fun educational programs to impart these skills. A former investment banker, she is a mom to a curious 7-year-old and an energetic 4-year-old and loves to spend time with them.
We are a team of like-minded individuals on a mission to inspire and empower the next generation through coding, design, entrepreneurship, and more!
