In this section, I wish to tell you about the origin of Eduken, myself, my team, our mission and vision.
Welcome to Our Company
Eduken is started with a very simple desire “Clear the confusion in students’ mind and help them in chalking a clear plan for their future”. While running my first education consulting venture (nodnat), I was approached by many parents and students to help them in choosing a career stream. Most of the times, I noticed that the decision they take has more to do with their wishes and less to do with child’s strengths. During this period, I found that many times a child is forced to take a course not because it was the best option for him, but because an uncle has recommended it or a distant cousin has completed that course and is successfully placed. (The logic is “It has worked for him, so it will work for you too.”)
So, I thought to do something in this area, applied all my learning, gathered all my resources, discussed with my seniors, professors, some leading academia of the country, senior principals and launched “EDUKEN – India’s first integrated education and career consulting company.”
Our mission is “To make learning meaningful and fun.”
We abide by our mission in whatever we do. We strongly believe that if you enjoy your subjects, course and work, it is real learning and real fun.
To become a nationally recognized player in the career consulting domain, by providing authentic and unbiased career guidance to the students. At Eduken, we want that a child should realize its full potential. We want that parents spend their money wisely on their child’s education and get the best outcome on their investment. We want to remove the confusion and give students a clearer path to follow based on their personality, knowledge and aspirations.
