Vision Digital India under the umbrella of Imperial Group has launched a course that aims to bring digital education to 1 lakh students in the upcoming 4-5 years. This course will equip the youth with digital and analytical skills, which are much sought-after by the corporate sector.
Many bright young minds today do not get to live their dreams of making
it big in the corporate world, simply because there exists an immense divide
between the education that has been imparted to them and industry requirements.
The core problem is that the industry is upgrading itself at such a breakneck
speed that most educational institutions cannot keep up. That is why the
courses they offer are becoming dated and obsolete, and students armed with
such degrees find themselves to be inadequately trained to make the cut in a
“This is what Vision Digital India had in mind when it created a course
that is precisely tailored to meet the demands of the corporate world, and
ensure that students are industry-ready. Through its endeavour, Vision Digital
India is trying to make PM Narendra Modi’s flagship campaign Digital India a
resounding success and it is succinctly summed up in their motto ‘Enable
Digital’,” said Dr Hari Krishna Maram, Chairman, Vision Digital India, on
asking about this endeavour.
To turn aspirations into reality, Vision Digital India has incorporated
niche technology into its course-structure to make it industry-relevant.
Employers don’t just look into a candidate’s scorecard but what truly works in
a student’s favour is how quickly he/she can be inducted into the workforce.
And, this calls students for acquiring a better understanding of new and advanced
technological concepts like data science, cloud and analytics, forming the
backbone of an industry.
What sets the course apart is the fact that Vision Digital India is
bringing to the table top-notch education at extremely affordable prices. What
adds to its USP is that it has joined hands with the likes of Google, IBM, and
Amazon, to rope in their technical know-how. For example, the analytics
certificate comes from IBM and Google certifies the Digital Marketing course.
Moreover, Vision Digital India has secured the help of industry
professionals who know the real world, how it works, latest updates and
requirements, and what employers expect from employees. Who is better to
instruct and train students than those men and women who have been working in
the corporate world?
But, how does it go about it? Vision Digital India approaches colleges
to implement its course. As per university regulations, the duration of the
course is set at 80 hours. The bulk of it, around 60% is dedicated to hands-on
training and the remaining 40% is all about theories.
“To cap it all, this course teaches students a novel way to compose their resume. They are encouraged to craft their dream CV and then they are inspired to strive to achieve it. Moreover, they are given useful insights into the nuances of the corporate interview procedure and tips to ace such interviews. Once the course is successfully concluded, students are awarded a certificate during a convocation ceremony along with a LinkedIn badge”, adds Dr Hari Krishna Maram.
The founder Chairman Dr Hari Krishna Maram has also received the Most
Prestigious International Icon Award 2019 at Indo-Thai Economic Forum Gala
Event, Bangkok through Vision Digital India, providing Digital skills and
creating employment opportunities to the youth.
It is a win-win scenario for all the players, including students, Vision Digital India and participating colleges. Students interact with trainers one-on-one and get ample opportunities to clear their doubts. Colleges benefit because this course expands campus placement and attendance too shoots up. And, it is cost-effective for Vision Digital India because they utilize the computer laboratories of the host college.
With the focus of Vision Digital India being on niche technology, job orientation, and campus placement, the course enhances desirability and employability, and that is why students stand to benefit from it.
The sight of two teenagers guiding a closed-door CXO meeting on the marketing strategy for the company’s new product launch is something that can leave us all in awe of the talent that the founders of AS Designs possess. Hashif T P and Lazim Masoud, co-founders of AS Designs were born and bred in Kerala and can easily pass off as the teen supporting leads in the next version of Deadpool, but when you spend 30 minutes with them over the table on a discussion on ‘digital marketing tactics’, you (and yes you), will emerge a changed man.
Both Lazim and Hashif knew digital marketing was their
calling the moment they started their self-learning journey that involved
spending late hours trying to accumulate knowledge through online platforms.
Armed with hunger to learn, dreams to succeed and discipline to follow through,
these two young entrepreneurs slowly but surely expanded their skill set by
learning web designing, graphic designing and coding. With humble beginnings as
freelancers backed by Computer Science degrees, they followed their passion
without compromising on the principle of “learning from mistakes.”
Fast forward 3 years, and this principle has come in good stead when we look at the firm they have built from scratch. AS Designs started out with only these two entrepreneurs who have grown the team to a total of 50+ young enthusiasts shaping the core marketing decisions of global brands. AS Designs plays a crucial role in a brand’s journey through various services such as Branding, Software Development, Mobile App Development, Web Development, Web Designing and SEO. While these services are provided by multiple players, what’s unique about AS Designs is the fact that the founders bring in a ‘fresh and larger-than-life’ perspective to their ideas thanks to their youthful approach which allows them to think out-of-the-box.
What is really promising to learn is that they treat
every client as a ‘partner’ and not as a ‘revenue-generating channel’, which
reflects in the end result. Further, they seem to be gifted with foresight and
understand the responsibility as leading voices of the digital marketing
industry, given that they recently launched “Appsys” – an academy for young,
budding talent (irrespective of age), to learn app development, web and graphic
designing as well as digital marketing. Lazim and Hashif’s joint ambition is to
create opportunities for young talent that often find it difficult to afford
courses and end up wasting their potential. Nothing pleases them more than
seeing young India create and introduce hard-hitting concepts and strategies
that can be adopted across the world. The future looks promising both for AS
Designs as well as their academy, as they set sights on ‘300 happy customers
and 3000 successful students’ as their target for 2020.
When asked about their mantra for success, Hashif and Lazim replied in tandem, “Stay grounded, don’t forget your roots and always dare to dream big!” This level of maturity from two 20-something year-olds has surely given us a lot to think about while they churns about your next award-winning website.

Digpu News Network Ties Up With Hindustan Times Media To Highlight Indian Start-ups To Global Audiences
New Delhi, India, August 14, 2019 —
With eight unicorns and 7000+ start-ups,
India’s start-up sector has announced itself to the world. The year 2018 saw a
108% growth in funding in Indian start-ups as per an industry report published
by NASSCOM. 2019 continues to prove to be a promising year for start-ups in
India with newer ideas, younger entrepreneurs, and a pro-business environment
created through various Government schemes and incentives.
While the sector holds promise and
potential for both the economy and consumers, various challenges continue to
stall progress, especially at the inception stage. Start-ups in ‘futuristic’
sectors such Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality are akin to immediate
attention and investment which may not be the case for a start-up with an
unconventional idea for a banking solution, given that banking is viewed as a conventional
sector. Entrepreneurs focus on a mix of innovative ideas, agile techniques, and
raw talent to find their feet in a highly crowded, often fragmented and
seriously competitive scenario which means that any form of support that
highlights the uniqueness of each idea is welcome.
There would be no points for guessing that the much-needed catalyst for Indian start-ups is to get more access to global support, whether through funding, mentoring, or networking at the right forums. To plug this gap, Digpu News Network has joined hands with HT Digital Streams Ltd. with the sole aim of highlighting innovative ideas and efforts by Indian start-ups that can help them grow through a series of stories on promising Indian start-ups.
Speaking on the exclusive partnership, Kunwar Devender Singh, Director, Digpu News Network said, “Mainstream media’s efforts to highlight the story of start-ups is nothing short of exemplary. Time and again, we come across remarkable and hair-raising experiences of young, budding entrepreneurs who brought their radical ideas to life through hard work and passion. These stories only prove the abundance of talent in our country, and we at Digpu, are proud to associate with HT Digital Streams Ltd. to highlight this talent on a global scale.”
“Start-ups are the silver lining of any economy, and more often than not, we’ve seen how their ideas can disrupt an entire sector. Be it their achievements or need for mentoring, we aim to give shape to their dreams through a platform such as Digpu, where change-makers across the globe take heed of their stories,” added Prabhakar Singh, Chief Revenue Officer and Dilpreet Kaur Banerjee, Deputy General Manager, Digital Sales, HT Digital Streams Ltd.
Start-up founders and investors from different cultures and backgrounds across the globe feel an instant connect given their shared sense of understanding and experience of starting up. At most start-up networking events, we often overhear the need for a platform or forum where every start-up, irrespective of size or stature or geography, gets to represent its ideas to a diverse audience. Taking inspiration from the famous saying by Victor Hugo that “nothing is more powerful than an idea whose time has come,” we see a similar thought behind the Digpu-HT Digital Streams Ltd. partnership, which acknowledges that the time has come for Indian start-ups to take centre stage globally.
