COMPLIMENTING THE EDUCATION SYSTEM WITH NEW-AGE TEACHING METHODOLOGIES…
To become employable in the current competitive scenario is like belling a cat task and without a particular mastery in any skill-set, it becomes even more difficult. The company featured here is adamant about dealing with the most important issue only- employment. Neu Finesse, spearheaded by Aakash Sharma (Founder and CEO), has made an exemplary mark in its respective industrial segment that made us feature its exclusive story of changing the learning environment across the country in this special edition. The student community is the one that has been at the core focus. Conceptually, the company began its journey in 2015 to get to know the pulse of the market and its response to the product they are offering.
After witnessing a positive response as well as better prospects, the founder happened to convert this part-time business into a full-time working organization and it has only been 3 months! But the impact it spurred since 2015 as a part-time business module was quite considerable at the ground level. Hence, the startup is worth many praises. As we sat down for a freewheeling telephonic conversation with Aakash, we came across several aspects of the startup that left us amazed in many ways. Let’s dive into the narrative.
NEU FINESSE AT A GLANCE
Bridging the gap between the corporate world and aspiring students, Neu Finesse is adding substantial value to the learning process at the ground level via its practical approach to helping the student community. Owing to their engagement activities and L&D programs, they have created a proper process of Learn – Unlearn – Learn that becomes a continuous cycle. By partnering with various educational institutions and hubs, the company is in constant pursuit of drafting the engagement plan for them.
All the offerings ensured by the venture are aligned with the holistic development of analytical thinkers, problem solvers, emotionally intelligent and value-driven leaders who can operate successfully in a dynamic global environment. It has introduced an ecosystem that believes in eradicating the traditional methods of learning while embracing new technologies to become more and more future-ready concerning the development of better skills.
The philosophy of the company asserts that though education is essential for growth, skill development is a mandate. Also, they have launched short-term learning programs targeting the domains of Finance, Digital Marketing, HR, Cyber Crime, IPR, Retail Management, etc, where various institutes have collaborated with them.

EVALUATION OF THE IMPACT SCALE
The very first batch of their classes started with the headcount of 78 students that shooted up to 215 in the next batch. Since then, the classes have only witnessed the upward trajectory in terms of headcount. Word of mouth and positivity stirred by the venture has attracted students eager to learn and make use of such innovative platforms to transform their lives. Especially during the pandemic, the stock market saw a huge influx of students entering the space where Neu Finesse made its significant contribution by guiding students towards better performance in the trading process.
To help the student community demystify the financial world, Neu Finesse has become the exclusive Learning & Development partner for 5paisa.com. 5paisa has launched a one of its kind product called ‘Youngvestor’ that is targeted at the age group of 18 to 23 and its benefits range from absolutely zero brokerage on equity delivery, intraday orders, mutual fund orders to zero account opening fees and account maintenance charges. This product is aligned with the vision 5paisa.com and Neu Finesse have curated together- allowing students to learn and utilize relevant information about finance to make better trading decisions.
5paisa.com and Neu Finesse have a shared vision of inculcating the habit of investment and savings in the youth of our country across all tiers. Prakarsh Gagdani, CEO of 5paisa said that, “We launched the Youngvestor program to enable students to get a financial head start in their investment journey. We want to create financial awareness among the millennials and youth of tier-2 and tier-3 cities and have partnered with Neu Finesse to achieve the same.”
Geographical expansion is essential for them and the team is brainstorming day and night to make it happen as soon as possible. Harnessing the power of the latest technology, they will ensure to make a virtual presence across tier 1 and tier 2 cities. Soon, they will be developing a proper roadmap for better execution of this vision.
THE PARTING NOTE BY THE ‘VISIONARY’
BEFORE PUTTING AN END TO THE CONVERSATION, AAKASH WANTED TO CONVEY A FEW WORDS TO THE ENTREPRENEURIAL ECOSYSTEM AND BUSINESS LANDSCAPE, “WHATEVER YOU ARE THINKING, WHATEVER CONVICTIONS YOU HAVE, COULD BE WORKED OUT. YOU JUST NEED TO TRY THOSE OUT ON THE GROUND LEVEL. NEVER GIVE UP AS YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT MAY HIT THE MARKET NEEDS- HOW IT MAY IMPACT THE LIVES AROUND YOU. JUST TAKE SMALLER STEPS AND GRADUALLY CROSS BIG MILESTONES WITH YOUR PERSEVERANCE AND DETERMINATION.”
