Don't you often hear the phrase "it's never too late"? Well, we say, IT'S NEVER TOO EARLY! We believe entrepreneurship shouldn't be limited to grown-ups and therefore, we think children should be given a chance to tap their entrepreneurship aptitude.

Long corporate career with leading institutions, who chucked a ''cushy life'' to follow my passions! It has been argued that extracurricular activities are not very important in a schoolchild’s life. I, however, differ with that. A student’s social life is as important as their academic life, for their development. With this notion, I believe that kids should be introduced to the world of new opportunities with no limits, where they discover and evolve themselves in new and different versions.
