I seek the permission of our Yahoo Group to project in this Group the achievements of some of the more recent graduates from the IITs who are being branded as the worst students who have ever been admitted to the IITs by some of the participants in our discussion group, because they are products of the coaching classes.
"TravelTriangle, an online travel services company launched by Sankalp Agrawal and Sanchit Garg is clocking revenues of Rs 1.2 crore in just seven months."
"There is no perfect time to start your own business. If you have a great idea, you should just take the plunge," said Agrawal, 26, who earned his degree in computer science from IIT Kharagpur in 2008. Co-founder Garg graduated from IIT Bombay.
This is about Ankit Mehta MD, IdeaForge , IIT B Graduate who started his Business when he was just 24.
"But the strong belief in the idea and support from friends, Rahul Singh and Ashish Bhat, and a grant from the government led to the birth of Ideaforge in 2007 when Ankit Mehta was just 24 years old.
Ideaforge got started with its pioneering work at the Technology Business Incubator, SINE at IIT Bombay."
In a bid to promote robotics, three students from IIT-Madras launched a one-of-its-kind education startup called LemaLabs. Founded in February 2010 by Vikram Shah (fourth year, Department of Engineering Design), Kedar Kulkarni (fourth year, Department of Metallurgical Engineering) and Vaibhav Barnwal (fourth year, Department of Engineering Design), the company has been working towards making robotics technology more accessible and affordable among students
LemaLabs has been conducting various activities and programmes across institutions in Chennai. Recently, the company launched Kaizen Robotics and Technology Programme, a year-long aptitude development programme in robotics for engineering students. The programme caters to various aspects of learning through lectures, lab sessions, sustainable robotics centres and online support. It was rolled out in Dr MGR University, Crescent Engineering College, Saveetha Engineering College, Rajalakshmi Engineering College and SRM Easwari Engineering College, among others. The company has been incubated by C-TIDES, the entrepreneurship cell of IIT-Madras.
There are dozens more of such reports on the most recent IIT graduates of the past 5-10 years who have started their own enterprises at a young age I shall in another mail in due course giving details of the fast track careers of many recent graduates who are being branded as the worst students IITs have seen.
