What started as a pilot for a physical mentoring program for urban, low income high school students has now grown into an organization. We mentored class XI students from Government Sarvodaya Vidyalaya in Saket, New Delhi. We validated and understood the problem at hand by interviewing more than 400 students from class IX to XII, capturing inputs from a large number of parents, educators, HR professionals and psychologists.
This thorough research and understanding of the problem, led us to emerge as one of the winners at Start up Weekend, Bangalore. With over 60 entrepreneurs and professionals of varied experience, background, schooling, there was formidable competition, but we realized that there is something special about us and we are willing to do whatever is necessary to succeed.
