We have found that there are many challenges for a startup in the education space. TestFormula.com has planned to fill this gap by conducting 100 workshops per year. We have understood the ways to tackle these challenges and the schools which we have covered this year have welcomed us for next year too. We are coming up with innovative ideas in our workshops and have built a specific team. Some other startups and entrepreneurs are in collaboration and together we will tackle these challenges.
TestFormula is also building an App ‘MarkSheet’ with the help of academicians and psychologists through which a 10th class student can get an idea about choosing the right subjects after class 10. There are other softwares available which help students in choosing a career by a personality assessment test, but the ‘MarkSheet’ app will also consider previous records of students’ mark sheets along with a personality assessment test.
Challenges and flaw in the education system can be tackled by support from schools, parents’ views on career choice and collaborative approach of entrepreneurs.
