My name is Varun and let me ask you a question.
Do Grades Matter?
Of course, they do. I have always stressed upon the importance of a degree in my public speeches. However, if you have failed to achieve good grades, then, remember that it is not the end of the world.
India is edging towards an academic-centric society instead of one where skill is valued more than marks. Degrees are extremely relevant for traditional careers. There are over 2000 careers in India that do not require a degree. Some of the biggest influencers in India have made a name for themselves in careers where their degrees were not of any significant value. Their achievement cannot be accredited to sheer luck but perseverance for acquiring the right skills to succeed.
To bridge the gap between ‘degrees’ and ‘skills’, we conceptualised “Grades Don't Matter.” The idea behind this is to teach you skills and not to inspire you. We will teach everything starting from public speaking to beat-boxing. To teach these courses, we have approached the best in the business. From Nitesh Tiwari (director of the highest-grossing Bollywood film in history) to Amish Tripathi (highest selling Indian author of all time) and from Siddharth Roy Kapur (producer of films like DevD, Rang De Basanti, Dangal) to Ritesh Agarwal (Co-founded Oyo, valued at 800 million dollars), we have all of them onboard.
Is this a masterclass? Not at all. We need to start with the basics, and therefore a masterclass is a far-fetched dream.The idea is not to inspire; the idea is to teach the necessary skills.
Hopefully, we can disrupt education in our own tiny, itsy bitsy way. We hope you enjoy and learn from our courses.
Cheers to a new India!
