THE THINK YOUNG STORY BY OUR FOUNDER
How it all started!
How it all started!August 6, 2014It all started in 2014 when I started my Bachelor’s in Business Administration from Surat, along with CFA Level I with a practical Program in Finance. My whole day was devoted in these 2 programs which gave me an extra knowledge about practical application of Finance in the economy & my college. I was quite fascinated with the idea of knowing about the world and CFA but I never gave enough thought about what are the Careers available after CFA. A classic mistake by teenagers and graduates.
My Eureka Moment
My Eureka MomentJune 12, 2015My decision was purely influential. I somehow cleared my CFA Level I with top grades but also realized the fact that Finance is not my cup of tea.
My ExplorationJuly 16, 2016I started my research on the Indian Education system out of my frustrations on taking an “unacquainted career decision” I also took a job in Marketing for an Education company and also continued my research with my 3rd year of graduation. I was focused on solving the Problem of Career decisions by students. Worked upon several conventional ideas ranging from new age schooling to tutoring but all of them weren’t satisfying enough.
Ladder to my Success
Ladder to my SuccessJune 20, 2017Embarked on a journey of Masters in Entrepreneurship and Management from Indian School of Management and Entrepreneurship, Mumbai. My only affirmation to join ISME was to end the program with a start-up idea in the Education industry. MBE kick-started with focus and vision. My research got more intense and I initiated conversations with all my faculties and mentors. Everyone suggested that many people are working on the same and you are no NEW. In the batch of 80 students, only 10 had a clear vision towards their career and I was one of them.
My ‘Aha’ moment
My ‘Aha’ momentSeptember 17, 2017I was frustrated about my failures and stagnant behavior of my ideas. My research and diligence paid off. One fine day, a thought occurred to me: “What if I had an exposure to Entrepreneurship earlyon in my academic career?” My career decision would have changed, if I studied Entrepreneurship in my school. That is when I asked myself Why can’t Entrepreneurship be taught in school?
A new beginning
A new beginningFebruary 13, 2018I have worked on each and every aspect of shaping this idea. Customer Research , Market Survey, Competition Analysis, Business Opportunity, Government support and what not. While the end of my Masters program was approaching, my idea was taking shape too. I was ready with a Start-up idea and it’s business model.
