Company Summary

The number of 4-year degree colleges in India has exploded from 12,806 to 33,023. Colleges are unable to attract faculty and maintain infrastructure to deliver quality education. Result - 75% of the graduating students lack practical skills to be employable. We plan to develop a platform that combines the features of LinkedIn (Profile), Facebook (Network), ODesk (Part-time jobs), and OST (Online courses) and sell subscriptions to the colleges.
