Whizjuniors turns VC for budding entrepreneurs

May 20, 2019

Whizjuniors, a social gamified edtech platform, is redefining the way online education is taking its shape in the country. The 2015 launched brainchild of Vidushi Daga, founder CEO of Whizjuniors, has done remarkably well in educating both students and teachers in online computer courses from basics to advance in a fun and competitive way, garnering considerable attention from across the country.

In its latest role as a Venture Capitalist, Whizjuniors plans to invest Rs.1 crore in innovate ideas of three students from across the country and give wings to their entrepreneurial dreams.

Since the world is steadily moving towards incubating new ideas which have the potential to address real-world problems, the youth need to be groomed to step into the world of entrepreneurship by implementing their brilliant ideas and building meaningful businesses or work models out of them.

The latest initiative of Whizjuniors aims to build a pool of tech geniuses in the country and the three students are selected on the basis of their regular performance in the class and the potential of their ideas. The three students who have been recently identified are Namya Joshi, a class 7 student of Sat Paul Mittal School in Ludhiana, Kushagra Agarwal, a class 8 student of Presidency NLO, Bangalore, Shreyas Shriram, a class 10 student of MDAV Public School, Hydrabad. The company will be initially investing 20 percent of the allotted amount for incubating the ideas of these students and will be investing 70 percent of the amount once their company starts operations. The rest 10 percent will be shared with their school computer teachers till the child eventually starts operations of the company. Whizjuniors will be selecting a few students every month for training after they finish their final examination and from amongst them, the company will select the best idea to invest in.

Upbeat on the development, Daga commented, “We have turned a VC for students who are very active on our leading Edtech platform and have completed multiple courses. We have been very successful in making these kids think independently and generate innovative ideas for the last four years. We now decided to invest in some of the best ideas and make them reach commercial level. Kids have a vast potential and inexhaustible capacity to learn and grow which is what we want to nurture.”

“This is first of its kind initiative in the country for budding student entrepreneurs to encourage them to think out of the box and support their novice ideas which would be impactful and game changing in the field of tech as these kids will define the future with their ideas,” she added.

Whizjuniors is an online technology learning platform which enables students to learn and develop multiple skills in a fun way on their own and present their big ideas to the world.
