J. A. Chowdary, Executive Chairman at TalentSprint said, "We are very pleased to recognize both our corporate partners as well as our trainees at our Foundation Day celebrations.  We are proud to have graduated 1000 students and while maintaining a record of over 85% placement. Being able to provide industry relevant training and jobs for graduates that were otherwise deemed unemployable by industry has been immensely satisfying for us. It has allowed us to achieve the first of our many goals of social and financial inclusion.”

In his remarks, Dr. Santanu Paul, CEO and Managing Director of TalentSprint said, " We have grown our corporate partner base to more than 25 companies in the IT and BFSI Sectors and will be continuing to expand this in the coming year.  TalentSprint’s business model of providing a just-in-time inventory of well trained, certified professionals has been well received by industry. We will be launching new programs in the coming months that will cater to industry needs by delivering a combination of domain, technology and business communications training.”

TalentSprint is experiencing significant demand for its fast-track transformation programs as unemployed graduates and leading companies in the IT and banking sector are realizing the need for a Talent Transformation Partner. TalentSprint currently operates out of Hyderabad, but is planning to expand its operations to Chennai and Bangalore in early 2010.
