Who We Are
“We are a young organization with big dreams in a country which is young and large! Our objective is to create a large pool of digitally trained field force, technologically enabled to perform various field activities such as lead generation, field survey, consumer audit etc. as freelancers for corporates.
We shall be a product and industry agnostic freelancing network for performing field assignments and thus creating employable resources. We would leverage the technology to reach out to the natural circle of influence of our students and exploit business opportunities around them.
India has a population of ~78 million between the age group of 18-20 years (census 2011). Most of this age group will enter the work force in the next 2-5 years. Of the reported more than 25 million students enrolled in undergraduate courses in the country today, a significant proportion face a large gap between the skills required for an entry level White/Pink collar job and those that they possess. The gaps are centred around soft skills, professional abilities, data handling skills and lack of exposure to specific entry level competencies required by some of the large providers of such opportunities. Simultaneously, organisations are on lookout for effective field footprint as well as trained entry level manpower that is productive from day one.
SkillWorld will change the way the youth of the country spends time in college. It is a venture meant to connect the college going youth with Job Ready skills, which will position them favourably for entry level “White/ Pink collar jobs” or “Self-employment”. As a part of the learning with us, these students will also work as freelance business associates responsible for assisting the sale of products or other tasks in their circle of influence. Thus, students will get practical exposure and will become the preferred choice of employers.
We are targeting to reach out to 2 Million families through more than 0.1 Million student associates across 50 cities within next 3 years.
Started by two corporate professionals with nearly 40 years of work experience between them, the journey of SkillWorld has begun, with only one ambition - To make a difference at both end of the spectrum- students as well as corporates!”
