Student Inc. Programme Highlights:

I had a vision to go global with my business but I had absolutely no idea how will I do that in a international market which was totally unfamiliar for me. The Rubicon Centre and Student Inc believed in my craft and supported me incredibly. The brilliant training at the programme has set strong foundation for my business and boosted my confidence. My dream has come true and I count myself blessed launching my brand at an international platform.

Any previous entrepreneurship experience before you joined Student Inc.?

Yes in India but it was different in the international market

What connections did you make on the programme?

I made some valuable connections with mentors, advisors, peer colleagues and customers.

What advice would you give to someone thinking of applying to Student Inc.?

If you have a dream and passion to offer something valuable, this programme will give you wings to fly.

What was your greatest learning from the programme

I was confused around positioning my brand. My greatest learning was not to undersell my craft, be proud and confident of my skills. Due to Covid a lot of my plans have come to a hault and slowed down. There were moments I had lost patience. Patience and perseverance to self and others has been a learning for me.
