What made you start your startup and what problem does it solve?
Witnessing the education in classrooms, we believed a creative space with an open environment and fun-filled engaging arena will help the students to self realise and understand one self better.

Tell us how a day in your life looks like? Your schedule for a day right from the time you get up till you hit the bed at night.
Everything depends on the DAY ! If there is an ongoing programme, then a pre-decided schedule takes the place. Time for self improvement and pets pockets the morning routine. The arrival of working hours functions on priorities with shorter intervals of indoor games to keep everyone fresh and active. Everybody has assigned jobs and chores to complete and it out-turns by connecting everything together. There is always a greater amount of trust and freedom running around.
Answering calls, mails & checking the practices followed are there in the desk. The additional perquisite is that there is time in the day to pursue your interest or learn something new. Pep talks, tough talks and open discussions ends with a game of cricket in the evening. The drift to sleep ends with a DO List for tomorrow. Plus Saturdays and Sundays are there in your hand to use.
