From a Student of Entrepreneurship to the CEO of StartupEd : Ankit Buti

Published

StartupEd – Why & What?

We roam around with ideas in our heads. According to us, some ideas are good, some are bad and some are extraordinary. But most of us have no clue what to do with it and how? It’s like having a seed in our hands, but not reaping from it because we don’t know how to sow or nurture it in an appropriate ecosystem.

Since, we don’t have knowledge about the required procedure or have any guidance; most of us leave our ideas midway and forget it forever. We need proper direction and advice to transform our ideas into a reality and thereafter start building a massive business empire. That is exactly what StartupEd endeavors to do for us. It guides us through the foundation of the business and caters to every requirement from having an idea to establishing it.

StartupEd is an entrepreneurship school and a start-up incubator. It provides student entrepreneurs with all the necessary education and resources to convert their ideas into reality. StartupEd provides a holistic infrastructure to emerging start-ups from conception to establishment and thereafter.

StartupEd has an innovative and diverse toolkit along with laudable sets of founders, mentors and investors in its portfolio, which is vital for any young entrepreneur looking to make his/her dreams into a reality.

 

The History & Founder Story

Ankit Buti, founded StartupEd in San Francisco, California, USA in September, 2015 with one focus, to help India prosper and contribute to government initiatives like Startup India and Standup India by providing the highest quality of education to India’s young entrepreneurs.

Ankit was born in New Delhi, India and he moved to United States for his education and gain industry experience. He graduated from Purdue University with a Bachelor’s Degree in the Computer Science and has a certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation. Further, he studied Business and Management at Stanford Graduate School of Business, USA.

After graduation, he worked as a Senior Software Engineer for approximately 2 years at Qualcomm Inc. in San Diego, USA, where he led his project team in collaboration with IBM. Then, he moved on to work at a private equity backed network and mobile security company in the Silicon Valley called, Pulse Secure.

Ankit has worked on diverse large-scale projects in the industry and has a wide range of experience on leadership and technical issues. He achieved numerous milestones in a very short span of time at Qualcomm. He is extremely enthusiastic about his work and a passionate problem solver. While working at Qualcomm, the idea of an entrepreneurship school in India came to his mind. The learning through interactions in different environments and culture, helped shape his idea. Consequently, he established his company in Silicon Valley, USA and moved to India to grow it further.

Ankit has chosen to facilitate India by providing an ecosystem for the young and aspiring minds of the future with the help of skills he acquired through his education and work experience. His mission is to change India’s entrepreneurial ecosystem by contributing to existing education systems and encouraging entrepreneurship as a viable profession for the students. He wants to empower the talented youth to pursue an idea, build on it and inspire others to do the same. He aspires to provide innovative tools and support to enable students, to thrive in their entrepreneurial journeys and build start-ups, to meet the world’s growing demands through entrepreneurial school, incubation and different events. His venture would not only boost employment in the country but also help with wealth creation. He has chosen India over all other countries, not only because it is home, but because India has started emerging as the fastest growing start-up hub in the world. He believes that the growing minds of our country, if guided well, can emerge as the best future entrepreneurs, who can provide solutions to all problems of mankind.

Taameer : An Initiative by Rubhen D’sa, A Social Entrepreneur

Published

on

Rubhen IIT Delhi

Rubhen D’sa appreciates art- writing and poetry in particular. He loves music, plays guitar and spends his free time listening, singing and composing music. He loves dogs, walking around Delhi observing, meeting, talking to strangers and trying new food joints. He has recently developed a taste for travelling and someday wishes to have a lifestyle, where he travels and writes. He is a nineteen years old English language writer from New Delhi. He is pursuing his graduation from Delhi College of Arts & Commerce and is passionate to become an author in the near future.

He was excellent in academics till the eighth grade. Then after, he decided to give academics a break and focus more on co-curricular activities. His grades in the mark sheet deteriorated with every passing term and the certificates he won in competitions kept piling up. “That’s gloomy, dark and depressing”, remarked his school teacher on the first poem he showed to her. It was seven pages, fourteen stanzas long poem. She gifted him the book later that month, ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’, a fable written by Richard Bach. She wanted him to read it and hoped that he would learn from it and do well in his life.

Rubhen performing in cafe

 

Rubhen is a state and national level award winner in creative writing. He was also seen reciting poems on Doordarshan- Indian television channel. He represented his college among the top 25 colleges all over India at the ‘National Youth Poetry Slam’, organized this year at Bengaluru.

He is always financially independent, as he started earning at a very young age by giving his hands on all kinds of odd jobs such as giving guitar and academic tuitions, writing for agencies, composing jingles, performing music at cafes. He not only earned for his survival but also for savings and investments. He likes money and thinks that everyone should do what they love to do and earn enough money to fulfill their needs in the world. He believes in the fact that being rich is not bad so long as the means adopted for it is right in all respect.

Rubhen is also the founder of an art-social enterprise Taameer. Among the old and newly founded art groups in Delhi, Taameer stands as a lone wolf for its discrete core vision. It was founded on 21st July, 2016. Taameer is a community of artists. The group has many young, talented singers, musicians, painters, dancers, writers, poets and even college professors. Rubhen visited many poetry slam events and art meets and found that all of them are revolving around the same cultivated ideas of glamour, glitz and commercialization. He could never connected himself to them. They gave him an impression of ‘art for the elites’. A few spoke to him, a few listened to him and he noticed that there was a sense of art in the air but only confined to the rooms. These organisations lacked what is being imbibed in the core of Taameer- a vision to transform the society through the art.”

Rubhen Taameer event

 

With four successful events in Delhi, Taameer, the group of highly passionate artivists, as they call themselves, is thriving across various platforms. This group of artists has organised art events and meets at Friendicoes- the famous animal shelter home, an old age home in Karkardooma and recently organised a fun event for more than fifty underprivileged students near Tihar Jail. “If science can help us find life on the Mars, art can help us continue life on the Earth.”, proudly says Rubhen D’sa.

The best part of Taameer is that the majority of its members are students, who are still pursuing their graduation. Taameer is run purely by the passion for art and social service. Taameer runs a Facebook page with original writings. Taameer also has foreign language professors from the University of Delhi and Amity University as its members. Taameer wishes to reach out to every artist in the country, as he says with a sparkle in his eyes, “We wish to continue to grow as a family of artivists. Art heals what science can’t cure.” says Rubhen.
