In an exclusive Interview with Himanshu Jain, Sen. V.P, Career Launcher, where he spoke about the expansion plans that aims to take the brand forward.
With such a big brand under the roof, how do you plan to take Career Launcher ahead in the future? Tell us your expansion plans.
Unit Franchise-single unit since the control is easy. This business requires lot of attention from the owner. It takes time and effort to take up education business. You cannot be present in multiple locations with only the staff in charge. The franchisee partner will also be more comfortable to be directly associated with company rather than Master Franchisee in between.
How has been your entrepreneurial journey and enlighten us what motivated you to enter the education industry?
Lifetime in a blink' is one way of describing my journey so far. It is now 22 years that my obsession with youth, education and entrepreneurship has lasted. Succinctly put, it has been a journey of immense learning for me. To my mind, life is a lot more than either success or money. Entrepreneurship is all about deploying your imagination, making it work, dealing with uncertainties, and building trust with all who work with you. Needless to say, it is more about failures and setbacks than success. That is also the precise reason why this journey is a great teacher in itself.Looking ahead, I continue to believe that education, along with our democracy, will be the single most important enabler for India. There is a lot of action left. I am hoping to last another blink - another 22 years! I hope to leave an institution that people respect.
What are the factors that have boosted supplementary education in India?
In Indian Education System, children do not get access to the education that should ideally inculcate aptitude based thinking skills and makes them ready to take on life challenges. Schools usually follow conventional style of teaching while all the entrance exams require speed and accuracy apart from testing high level of aptitude. The lack of quality teachers in our educational institutions – be it schools or colleges leaves no option for the aware student to hunt for quality teachers outside their institutions which leads to supplementary education framework continually getting strong.
