About

Shaila is the co-founder of Enstitute, a two-year apprenticeship program built off the “learn by doing” model. Enstitute challenges the notion that bachelor’s degrees are a necessity before one can become a successful member of society. Instead, Enstitute seeks out talented digital natives and offers them mentorship opportunities through hands on apprenticeships at companies like The New Republic, The Huffington Post and Thrillist.

Despite advocating against a traditional education, Shaila has had an impressive one of her own, having graduated with honors from Arizona State University and earned her MBA from Harvard Business School.
