Like many engineering graduates in India, 25-year-old Rahul Varma became an engineer not by choice but out of chance. He realised much later in life that his passion lay in management and sales, and not coding. After heading AIESEC’s operations in India, he went on to become the Chief Operating Officer for an edtech startup in Bengaluru.
There, Rahul realised that India’s schooling and education system was outdated, as there hardly is any industry relevance to what was being taught in schools and colleges. Most of the youth lack industry relevance and real-time skills to keep up with the pace of change in technology and other industries.
