MyCaptain- The platform to learn, earn and grow for students!
More than 1.5M students graduate every year in India.
How many students out of them actually go and pursue their passion?
There is as such no data regarding this but, I am sure the number is definitively very low.
As a teenager, you get to discover that following your passion is difficult in India as neither the education system offers ample time, relevant knowledge, and right motivation nor society supports it.
We are judged based on our ability to memorize content and attend classes, in India, isn’t it?
This is one of the core problems being focussed upon in MyCaptain.
What is MyCaptain?
We live in a country where future writers, designers, developers, entrepreneurs are clueless about how to take the first step into their passionate career. As a result, they are pushed into the fields they aren’t interested in.
At MyCaptain, they aim to create a Passion Revolution and solve this problem by providing opportunities to students to pursue their dream.
