Ayush Pandey,Founder at Skillvalley


How did you get your idea or concept for the business?

As an entrepreneur, observation is the best skill to brush out. During the lockdown, I saw a lot of my friends from many colleges struggling for the right communities, mentors, and resources to learn from. They used to ask their professors and seniors which never drove them toward a solution due to the neverending chain of confusion about the "best" platform.


As a 2nd year student, in 2020, I started connecting the students with mentors and college groups. And then I came to know that the students already have all the free resources on the internet, all they need is the right curated resources, a good community to work with, and a mentor to nurture them in the right way.


So to bridge the gap between the campus world and the corporate world, we gave birth to Skillvalley.



What are the various services provided by Skillvalley?

Skillvalley originated to help the community of students.

• We run 8 weeks of cohort programs on the web, android, backend dev, and product dev.

• Students will be allocated industry problems and will have to solve that problem within 8 weeks along with the community.


This not only helps the students to learn together but also participate in a healthy competition among the several students around them.

To maintain enthusiasm in the cohort, we give several prizes to the winners and network them with a good community on various social platforms.



What makes Skillvalley different from hundreds of other similar service providers?

Being unique is a great urge among humans, and that is what we guide in our communities. We focus on the skills of the student and not the monetary thing, being said that not everyone can be a part of our cohort curriculums, students will have to pass certain selection criteria to be part of our cohort programs and then need to pay the money.


Also, we don’t ask students to sign a bond or pay any upfront fees for the placement program. Best mentors, right curated resources, and a good community, and see your growth 10x with us.


What were the struggles and challenges you faced and how did you overcome them?

Being a student entrepreneur the most challenging part was managing academics along with your startup and on top of that being student, hiring, and building a team. But as being said right mentors always give you the right direction and ultimately you will figure it out during your journey, I followed the same.


"You cannot decide your destination without experimenting". Entrepreneurialism is the second name of risks and I am always ready to accomplish my tasks, overcoming all challenges.


How do you plan to grow in the future? What does 5 years down the line look like for Skillvalley?

Growing and learning is the neverending process of one's life. Skillvalley aims the same.

Providing the best community platforms for tier-3 students to come together and build projects. This will help the students to gain real-life experience in building and get the chance of being part of reputed organizations.


If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?

Say yes to every damn opportunity, you don't have an image or anything to loose right now. Grab that opportunity
