Being a President of RICIS Institutions, I look forward to building strong tie-ups with reputable organizations to provide impeccable opportunities to my students.
Deriving motivation from parents who wanted to educate the society, I ventured into the world of education. My parents has been my greatest inspiration in my life. One of their wishes to build an educational institution. Starting my journey from the scratch, I learned the A to Z of education to provide a distinctive education to the student community. With a strong belief in ‘Learning to Learn’, I found the process of learning enjoyable all through these years.
While addressing a challenging question from one of the young minds about the mobilization of funds to begin the legacy of RICIS, I replied that, throughout my journey from being a engineer to an IT company MD, I faced a lot of obstacles and hurdles in business and finally I settled down as a successful entrepreneur. I decided to venture into education to fulfill my parents dream and thus became an educational entrepreneur.
Drawing similarities between the fields of IT and education, I told the UG students that, although it was not an easy move from IT to education, both have the objective of building right from the scaffold to the pinnacle. However, education calls for a lot of investment. Keeping funding as my priority and channelizing the financial support from the previous business and from my partners, I spearheaded to education. To date, We continue to fund the education vertical from the business vertical and will have to continue up to a certain point.
Facing obstacles in life makes us stronger. Similarly, challenges and hardships have also been a part and parcel of my life as an entrepreneur. I strongly believe in three key principles of life – Ownership, Commitment, and Involvement. I not only practice these important principles but also preach them to all. I believe we are answerable to our own conscience and self. Challenges and problems come only to those who dare enough to think differently. I always believe in being unique and enjoy taking up challenges and facing them gracefully.
There are three types of management on which people work – the first category is the cohort who take up management as business; the second category is the cohort who combine business and service; and the third category is the cohort who consider business as service. Finding myself in the third category, I want to give back to the society which has recognized me as an Entrepreneur and Edupreneur. My vision is to uplift the society by creating responsible and accountable young citizens who would involve themselves in building our nation.
