Monthly Newsletter | October 2019 | Volume 06


 

It’s a tale of thousand journeys and uncountable milestones, some of them demand celebration indeed. Completion of our 10 years journey is one such.

 

We are at a point where we feel a dash of pride in saying that our belief in bringing total organization, accountability and purpose to school consultancy operations has fructified beyond expectations. With a dedicated team of 35+ full time professionals, we are now the only K-12 lifecycle services company with such span of operations both in terms of projects and human capital.

 

With 40 schools on firm ground and 18 ongoing projects, we are now daring to touch the landscapes that have seemed out of bounds for entrepreneurs. Blazing the trail makes us ecstatic. The volume of our operations can be gauged by gazing at the figures, a 1000 Cr. capital entrusted under our consultancy so far.

 

The latitude of the services we offer is wide and touches 35000 schools across the county now.

 

Grounded in our core which is school set up, management and improvement services, our ancillary ed-tech services too came of age in previous years.

 

It is apt to say that we grew not just in the era of information technology but we grew with it, we saw it gradually pervading all walks of life and we employed it in our initiatives for maximum effect. Role of digital technology in our growth, though not exclusive, is very special to us. We have been frontrunners in providing digital solutions for every area of school management right form teacher recruitment to school real estate to school supplies and with the latest addition, a school management software a milestone of sorts has been reached in the quest of harnessing digital technology for the growth and flourish of the K-12 education sector.

 

Our initiatives are well received and we feel fortunate for every ounce of appreciation and every pint of criticism. With a hope that we will meet all expectations and pacify all criticisms, we march on…
