Amit Kumar, CEO at Unpadh
Great Companies: How did you get your idea or concept for the business?
Amit Kumar: With my Education Background and being an IIT / IISc, FMS, Stanford, and MIT Sloan Student, I have acquired the trait of thinking about the problems from the end-user’s perspective. I noticed there was a substantial gap to fill in the education industry in the form of connecting young minds with new ideas and creative teaching methodology. I could clearly see that in tier 2/tier 3 cities where the infrastructure is not so good and people are not very tech-savvy, the students were not able to leverage technology to access knowledge available outside their cities, and institutes were not able to grow their student base.
We noticed this gap and realized that it’s an opportunity to help the students as well as institutes by providing them with a platform to increase their reach and access knowledge beyond physical boundaries.
We may be new in the online education domain but we are focussing on providing online solutions through technology-based courses in the field of management and technology programs from esteemed universities and institutes both national as well as international.

From online courses in various fields to providing career advice to helping students prepare for competitive examinations, we are merging education with Virtual Reality Technology to change how education is being perceived in the nation.
