[Startup Bharat] This Surat-based edtech platform is making graduates job-ready with the right upskilling
Surat-based edtech and HRtech startup Valuationary upskills graduates with the help of industry leaders, reducing employee’s training downtime to a minimum.
First-time entrepreneurs and finance professionals Pratik Bajaj, Kunal Shah, and Mahip Gupta timely complete that a majority of colleges aren’t teaching students the proper skills to create them job-ready, that results in a niche in hiring. The trio determined to take it upon themselves to resolve the difficulty and commenced Valuationary — a Surat-based edtech and HRtech startup — which helps students and professionals learn courses in finance and company soft skills and acquire higher jobs..
Co-founder and chief executive officer Pratik Bajaj (26) explains that Valuationary is an end-to-end upskilling and recruiting platform that helps candidates bag the correct finance jobs and corporates notice the right talent.
He says that CAs, CFAs, and MBAs find it onerous to bag a worth finance job as a result of the shortage of sensible skills needed for the job. On the opposite hand, corporates struggle to induce quality talent even after spending exuberant amounts of time, cash and effort.
While they were mulling the edtech idea, they met 26-year-old Mahip Gupta (CPO) — a fellow friend of Pratik — who had worked with Indian edtech startups Your Pocket classroom and Gradeazy.
Together, they pooled an initial capital of Rs ten lakh to develop and deploy the edtech platform and formally launched Valuationary in october 2020. At present, the startup encompasses a team of eighteen members and 20 domain experts, teaching courses like money modelling and business valuation, and credit analysis and hedge fund accounting.
