Shivam Joshi – An Entrepreneur Who Went Beyond Education & Degree to Prove His Mettle

Shivam Joshi

An entrepreneur at 18 & a Corporate Trainer at 19–Shivam’s story will leave you in awe. He’s shown outstanding intelligibility in choosing and pursuing a career of his choice. His determination to pursue his own path when students his age were attending 12 hours of non-stop coaching to crack IIT JEE, his logics & statistics were in place. At 17 he knew that out of about 12 lac students appearing for IIT JEE, approximately 10 thousand would crack it. While the first few thousands would get admission in colleges and courses of their choice, the rest would settle for courses and colleges depending on the availability of seats. The same will be the story of students who won’t crack IIT and take admission in sundry colleges and courses they never considered. Shivam knew at that young age that high pay package, high flying job, Ivy colleges can’t disillusion him. He knew what he wanted and this focus drove him to pave his own path and pursue his own dreams.

In the phase of the IIT JEE entrance exam, Shivam continued in his programming domain and Innovations. In 2019, he won Mayor’s Innovation award for designing Road Traffic Controller; was ranked 5th in the Indian Hackathon 2019. Among his most coveted achievements is the Automated Parking Resolver that he developed, which was selected to be presented at Stanford International University, Thailand in September of 2019 and won him great praises and review. During this time he was also offered admission to the University of Turin, Italy. He represented Maharashtra State in Faridabad Global Innovation (FGSI 2020) and stood 3rd. He is a winner of Kerala Hackathon 2020 for rural area development, and also Ambassador of IEEE Rising Starts Conference, USA.

Rudraksh and Shivam

Shivam and his friend Rudraksha were in the programmer domain since 8th grade; building & sharing dreams from a young age. Rudraksha’s story was, he started with the IIT-JEE coaching with no option left to get admission in his interested domain. In this phase, he has to leave his programming, to focus on the entrance exam. Leaving programming was not a good decision as the result was not as expected. But that was not late, Rudraksha got admission in his interested branch. The friendship remained and they united a few years later. And they are as thick as before and as focused. Chasing and achieving milestones and dreams with double the grit.
