The Face Behind our Success

We Couldn’t Do It Without Her

Shefali Kapoor Patel

  • Founder of Vijay Computer Academy – Global IT education & training institute since 1990
  • Director @ Women Who Code Houston
  • Vice chair and Mentor Ambassador @ Mentoring Committee of AnitaB.org
  • Club Facilitator @ Girls Who Code
  • Best Woman Entrepreneur, Women Who Mean Business Awardee
  • Visionary Global Transformational Change Leader
  • Mentor and Career Guru for last 29+ years
  • Champion for Digital Gender Equality
  • Role model to girls and Women in Tech

The Pioneer in IT Education andTraining, Shefali founded VIJAY COMPUTER ACADEMY (VCA) in 1990, the world of IT was relatively lesser known in Vadodara, Gujarat. Computers were not easily accessible & most people were not aware about them in India. She did not have any resources, support or guidance to start this computer training business. She ventured this institute from the scratch with her great vision, strong self-confidence & will power, magical intuition & grit.

In India, parents need a son to carry their family name ahead, or to carry their business legacy forward. This perception was proved wrong by Shefali who has made her late father proud by starting a business in his name and running it successfully across the globe.
