Ati Ranjan Kumar was part of one of the sunshine industries - the high-end outsourcing of investment research and advisory businesses from global banks, financial institutions, and hedge funds. Being a relatively new industry with ever growing demand, Ati spent a good amount of his time training and developing 700+ analysts during his stint where he realized the utter lack of hands-on training that limits students’ ability to understand the application of knowledge in the real-world work environment. Further, he realized a dire need of bridging the gap between theory and practice and help students develop critical thinking abilities. This was also important for corporates that lacked adequate time to train the individuals for live projects. MyAbhyaas was incepted with a mission to help millions of youth acquire and enhance their skills and continue to remain relevant in the fast-changing work environment.
