India's EdTech pioneer | CL Educate
Satya Narayanan R is not just an entrepreneur but also a teacher - something that he believes runs in his DNA!
In this episode I talk to the founder of what you could say is India’s original ed-tech venture - CL Educate, better known as Career Launcher.
He candidly shares his incredible journey that began in the summer of 1985 in Meerut with Satya as a shy young boy with aspirations of becoming a cricketer to starting CL with a handful of students in 1994 at the age of 24 & raising capital via an IPO.
I asked Satya about what he thought was different about being an entrepreneur in 1994 when he started the first batch of CL Educate (or as Satya puts it “when the word entrepreneur had not yet been imported to India”) to being an entrepreneur now.
With humorous anecdotes from his early life, to his views on the quality of education at top B-schools, his take on entrepreneurship today and answering tough questions about size & scale v/s sustainability, listen to get inspired by him and the stories of the choices he made in life.
