MyShikshaSathi Education Startup Pitch 2016

STARTUP NAME*:MyShikshaSathi
What does the company do?*:MyShikshaSathi.com is a Distance Education Portal that has been created to fulfill a vision of empowering students with knowledge and information so that they make an informed decision while choosing the best university for Distance Education.
What big problem does it solve?:When I was working at Naukri.com as a Sales Executive and bidding my time for a promotion to get through at the managerial level, everywhere I inquired for the same they advised me to get a Master’s Degree in Management. So I went looking, as any individual would to the Greatest Database on Earth – Google. Searching for universities which were providing distance education in India. The result was pretty disappointing, to say the least. Eventually my friend suggested Karnataka State Open University for MBA and based on word-of-mouth, I followed his advice and searched for the contact details of KSOU. Inspite of all the information present on the internet, I could only come up with information and contact details of a random consultant and applied through them. After One and Half Years of giving exams through the same consultant, I realized that the consultant was a fake and had been conducting exams on a false premise on looting students all that while. At that point of time I realized that there is a huge gap in the Distance Education Sector of our country and there is no website in the Online Education Sector which provides highly verified information for students and a highly efficient support system to help enable them to give them that seamless Admission procedure.
