â€œThroughout my SHORT journey so far, I have realized that great advice comes along seldom and you should embrace it rather than having your walls up so high that you cannot fathom criticism. Constructive criticism is what will help you challenge yourself, your ideas and eventually lead to better processes. I have thought about giving up many times but that lasts for a few hours and then I am back on my bull riding through the corporate ring. Whatever highs and lows it brings, I love it,â€? arrows Saubhagya. 16
We will soon launch our in-house digital solutions, in collaboration with IBM Watson. We are also looking to extend our operations to Canada and Finland by the end of 2020. We strive to support a culture of performance, matched with integrity.

CYMATIC: TRANSFORMING THE EDUCATION LANDSCAPE WITH HIGHEST STANDARDS IN VIRTUAL LEARNING
JOURNEY SINCE THE INCEPTION
Started in 2017, the team spent 7 months to build the MVP then tried running 3 centers with a total of 250 students across 2 districts of Bihar, India. The main objective was to provide such services to the government and other schools as there are 1 million teacher vacancies across primary and secondary schools in India. They tried this for two years and failed in doing so. In 2019, Kaushik switched his business model for b2c from b2b and Integrated 4 Learning Modules i.e. Lecture, Content, Test and 24*7 Doubt Assistance and created a new MVP in 6 months as there was a market demand for online learning in tier 2 and tier 3 cities of India and we never turned back – stated Kaushik.
KAUSHIK SHARAF - THE MAN BEHIND THE BRAND
A skimpy summary of Kaushik’s life inspired by Invention, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship! Further Kaushik Shared, “It all began at a very early age, pertaining to my natural inclination towards the simple fact ‘The Why(s)'?" why there is a gap between rich and poor so widely while on the other hand, middle-class families being the employee class getting sandwiched between all interests of mankind?”, “Why is not education, skills and other fundamentals available to all humans equally?”, “If nature is serving us equally with her resources, being absolutely free and accessible to all? Being the most intelligent creatures of our ecosystem, with all the advances of science and literature over centuries, why are we lagging behind due to these irrational problems? “Why are the assets so fallaciously distributed between us while the universe chooses to nurture us equally?" The indignation to such observations and inclination for the art of critical thinking, questioning and hence, the passion for entrepreneurship has perpetually imbibed in me.” “When I was in Bachelor of Engineering, I rationalized my path, even more, to discover myself as a socially impact. It all started, when I started selling self-designed T-shirts for the college fashion in the campus of BIT Mesra, Ranchi, and soon after we started mixing business with Technology and created a health centric 22
databased technology to enable real time data flow of the human body, but as I was only in my second year of college, I failed.
But after passing out from college I was constantly in the hunt for solving something that could bring peace within me. Somehow I got a PPO from a MNC, but gave up just after 7 months, to participate again into one start-up idea in Delhi. Later, even I don't know why I switched back to Bihar for a contract based consultant offer; it was madness - everyone said. Eventually I Met peoples who were also in hunt for entrepreneurship. We sat together at CCD Gandhi maidan, and it all got started. Everyone said it was madness - Startup in Bihar,Education Technology, lot said - you are going to fail and it would be big this time and will lose everything, are you insane? If you desperately want to do such crazy things why not trying this thing in Delhi or somewhere else,” he added.
INVENTION INNOVATION ENTREPRENEURSHIP
EXCLUSIVE LEARNING PLATFORM
E-learning with contents is not new in India; online learning portals such as Byju, Toppr, and Vedantu have had them for a while now. What is unique about Cymatic is that it actually provides curriculum-based learning as it makes us a digital school itself that take care of every learning activities in addition to the web-based learning that others support. Our platform is built to support schools based courses with personalized touch rather than for individuals to casually learn topics online. They have kept the group size of 10-20 students per group so that each student get personal touch attention of teachers plus also get benefitted by the small group dynamics.
CORPORATE ETHOS FOR CLIENTS AND TEAM
Creativity is an extension of human selves, and to nurture that we need to first acknowledge that there is a box, only then we will be able to think outside the box. It’s the daily paradox that we encounter in workplaces; Cymatic provides employees that creative space where he/she can exercise innovation.

In academics, Sushant has done an MBA from the University of Wales, the UK in Marketing and International Business and there he conceived this idea of Digital Health for Students from NHS (National Health Services, UK). After that, he came back to India and started three Pre-schools and was running them successfully.

Then he sold his schools and invested his capital in developing this brand.

As a director or building main you have the ability, want and manner to lead others. You acknowledged this test and obligation as a hireling pioneer and your errand won’t be for the swoon of heart. You will require conviction, strength and above all pledge to yourself as well as other people to be successful.So what is being a pioneer and all the more significantly, what do compelling pioneers do any other way? John Buchan states, “The assignment of initiative isn’t to place significance into individuals, however to evoke it, for the enormity is there as of now.” If transformational-genuinely viable administration is to happen it is through building up the authority in you and of people around you. Really powerful pioneers instinctually and purposefully experience their convictions – through their activities. A considerable lot of your activities as a pioneer will be illogical to institutional preparing, practices, and conviction structures inside your association. Your capacity as a pioneer to perceive and explore through difficulties will be the contrast between foundational versus situational change. Customary ways to deal with persistent change starts with the attitude of how would they address the issue inside the current institutional structures. From the beginning this approach will yield common outcomes when the normal outcomes are a long way from run of the mill. As transformational pioneers, you should be anything other than regular. Change endeavors should be drawn closer with a crisp arrangement of eyes open to all potential outcomes for genuinely impactful and supportable outcomes to happen. As a pioneer you should have the right stuff to foresee and withstand the institutional protection from secure existing conditions that will definitely will happen. As a transformational pioneer you should have the fearlessness to surrender positional expert and endow authority in others. This distributive initiative approach comes through strengthening, coordinated effort and shared responsibility as the standard and desire for all. Each individual in your association has intrinsic and learned administration aptitudes. Administrators and building principals must have an intense familiarity with every individual’s abilities and use them for the advantage of the association. On the off chance that you comprehend what institutional boundaries are set up that demonstration against organizing these endeavors you will be more fruitful in separating them. In doing as such you will make a culture enabled to go out on a limb and bolster creative ways to deal with settle the intricate issues your school or area may confront. We are altogether conceived with natural interest however after some time institutional norming limits our senses. 40

There is almost certainly that you will be tried professionally and by and by on each choice and move you make. You should be clear and predictable in your embraced and authorized convictions on what is best for the association and how you expect to move the association towards the course you look for. Remain consistent with your own and expert feelings and you will discover others will put resources into you and your authority. Put People over Processes No association will be fruitful until the point when the pioneer encompasses the association with skilled and submitted representatives. Human capital is the most imperative resource for any effective and reasonable association. This is additionally the most troublesome region confronting capable pioneers yet completely essential to progress or disappointment. Individuals trump forms. As a pioneer you are coordinated through arrangements, statutes and desires to take after specific procedures. Procedures are imperative They give an unmistakable “guide” for others to take after to guarantee proficiency of activities. Plainly comprehended and identifiable procedures empowers every individual in your association the capacity to work all the more productively. As a pioneer you will discover circumstances where procedures may knock up against what is best for your work force. At the point when this happens you should will and ready to survey these obstructions and change them. Keep in mind forget your work force will be relied upon to complete the procedures and your duty is to guarantee they have each opportunity to be effective. In the event that methods or approaches go about as obstructions to use your association’s human capital-change them. Have a Plan When others put stock in your feelings and promise to the association they have to know you have an arrangement. Be particular with regards to the objectives of the association, forms for coordinated effort, have a distributive authority structure as a top priority. Recognize and expressly lay out the means to execute the arrangement. When this is expert your staff can picture activity. Be predictable. Try not to misjudge consistency with firmness. Others will put resources into you when they feel persuaded you are predictable in your conviction structure and way to deal with complex issues. Transformational pioneers insert ceaseless criticism forms and the adaptability to turn when essential. In the event that your activities are conflicting it will make an increased domain of tension constraining or dispensing with others to put resources into your heading and authority. Impart and after that Communicate Again Correspondence is the way to moving every one of the parts working in synchronized mold. A pioneer imparts conviction, reason and responsibility each moment of consistently through activities, basic leadership and the average correspondence mediums. Most importantly, pioneers comprehend listening is the most essential factor of being a powerful communicator. The message is more vital than the medium.
