TheCconnects: Can you tell our readers a little about your professional journey & how did you come to your current role/position?

Mantra Ankit Patel: Entrepreneurship and starting your own business sounds a lot cooler than the actual work. I was 15 years old when I had no clue what I would do ahead in my life when it came to a career, I came across a course a summer school course where in they would teach entrepreneurship and business before I enrolled for it as a normal child. As and when I went through the course I had to learn many more details about business management and how would it work.

 

Then, the hardest part was starting my own business alone. But my idea was a lot stronger than I thought because it focused on providing education at the lowest rates to the neediest people and helping them start their businesses as well in just 45 days.

 

I partnered with an African company and then we together started getting students and distributing the course in more than six African countries which you are also doing right now.

Mantra Ankit Patel: Becoming a chief executive officer is hard. But, taking the initiative to start and consistently execute the ideas is even more challenging. If one is also thinking to start and have bigger ambitions, then one must start with solving a problem or thinking of a product that is needed and can play an important role in people’s. The idea should not necessarily be revolutionary, but it must be different.
