When it comes to researching and finding the right colleges for their higher studies, Indian students do not want to leave any stones unturned. They wish to make pragmatic decisions and so they always want to rely on sources that will provide them the authentic information. It is this aim of Indian students that laid the foundation for way2college.com.
Started by great hands with good educational experience:
Way2college was started in the year 2008 by a group of NITians and NRIs. This Venture is the Efforts of 2 Brothers, Mukesh and Dinesh. Mukesh Maheshwari is an MBA from R.A. Podar Institute of Management in Jaipur and his graduation was done in the National Institute of Technology (MREC) Jaipur in Metallurgical Engineering. Being an engineering and MBA himself, he just wanted to help future engineers and business administrators.
With this idea, they started this website with an initial investment of Rs. 1.25 Crore, But, now, this website is standing as the $1.68 million company. More importantly, it all happened by his own efforts and he never took any funding to improve his website to its present stature.
More than MBA and Engineering, the website presently helps students from different branches like science, commerce, arts, etc.
Not just educational experience, but also career experience:
After his MBA, Mr. Mukesh Maheshwari gained experience in different sectors like banking, information technology, engineering, production, and the list goes on and on. All these experiences helped him to a great extent in upbringing way2college.com. He has worked with great employers like Career Launcher, Jindal, Auto Malleable, HDFC Bank and Kotak Mahindra Bank. His professional life lasted for more than a decade before he started way2college to help the future generation of the society.
Awards and Accolades:
To honor his dedication and his commitment to whatever field he entered, Mr. Mukesh has won awards and honors in his career. He has won the Corporate Social Excellence Award, Sword of Honor from HDFC Bank. In addition, he was provided with the responsibility to organize some national and international events in the field of power metallurgy and public relations. He completed those tasks with the utmost perfection. He brought in the same fire to way2college.com.
Started in 2008, it took nearly a decade for the website to reach this height. This means that nothing happened overnight for way2college. It was due to the dedicated effort of Mr. Mukesh and his team, the website now stands as the excellent source of information not just for students looking for higher education within India, but also abroad.
Not just educational guidance, way2college also provides Career Guidance. The reason is that Mr. Mukesh is a career counselor himself, who has helped many students find their right path in the career.
How about funding?
Without any funding, it is really a revolt that way2college.com has reached this height. With an initial outlay of Rs. 1.25 lakhs for product development, the website started its operations. Of course, there were challenges in the way, lessons learned from mistakes and every mistake committed was turned out to be stepping stones for success. Mr. Mukesh took over the marketing of the site in his hands and everything started to turn to the favor of this website from thereon.
He personally and also through his team visited colleges and universities and provided counseling to students. With the personal experience they gained from these sessions, students started to turn up towards the website. Once the website started generating profits from the marketing efforts of Mr. Mukesh, he was able to spend Rs.1 Crore towards further improving the reach of the website although it’s already a profit making organisation. The college visits developed good relationships with colleges that provided their support to the reach of this website. Colleges were really attracted by the knowledge of Mr. Mukesh and his team.
All these things helped the website reach the $1.68 million mark. The website has great gratitude towards students for the support they have provided.
