“Clients & individuals who have used LEAPS to upskill, have seen a marked difference from just knowing concepts, to being able to apply them in the real world.”
Rajeev Baphna (Founder & CEO, LEAPS by Analyttica)
There exists a huge gap between Data Scientists and Business Analysts, in their ability to manage data, connect the dots and convert data into actionable insights. Perturbed by this giant gap, Rajeev Baphna, an ardent leader with 30 years of experience, decided to build a platform that will give every Data Science aspirant (irrespective of their level of proficiency) a place to apply the concepts they learn to business use with solutions and strategies.
