Revolutionizing The Financial Literacy Through Innovation
By Sandhya Agrawal
Shine Projects, with an extraordinary vision, embarked upon the journey of full-fledged live teaching since May 2020, and have witnessed a tremendous growth in revenue, which is soon inching towards a seven-digit figure. With its headquarters located in Hyderabad’s T-Hub(Community space for start-ups, investors, incubators and accelerators by Government of Telangana), the Company operates in India, the Middle East, the US, and the UK. Here, the objective of the Company is to provide financial literacy and make the students – industry-ready in an affordable manner.
The beginning of the Company is the knitted results of the Coronavirus lockdown and the Founder’s passion for imparting affordable and high-quality practical education.
The extensive range of unique courses offered by Shine includes Share Markets Basic and Advanced Module, Career Orientation Program, Personality Development Course, Banking Advanced Module, Life Insurance Advanced Module, and Mutual Funds Advanced Module. Apart from this, “Financial Markets Crash Course” is the flagship programme of Shine Projects, taught by the founder himself.
The crash course on the financial markets is a 7-day extraordinary course- teaching Share markets, Mutual funds, Insurance & Banking concepts– with over-the-top benefits. The Course is a package filled with numerous benefits that include course completion certificate, convenient time slots, lifetime subscription, premium study material with live teaching and live doubt clearing sessions– being their USP.
The inimitable feature is that, upon completion of the course, the student gets a personal LinkedIn recommendation from Mr. Harsha, this feature is currently available only with Shine and is another USP. The demand for this Course is sky-high. So, every 4-5 days a new live batch is started. The course can be opted at a 50% off by applying a referral code.
As a student-oriented company, Shine guides the students on job application assistance and even teaches them regarding additional certifications that can be done to enhance their portfolio. While these courses are beneficial for students, it can be taken by anyone of age 15-80 years and interested in learning Financial Markets.
Mr. VenkataSri Harsha is the MD & CEO of Shine Projects, and he is the instructor of the flagship program(Financial Markets), Mutual Funds Advanced Module, and Life Insurance Advanced Module. Mr. Harsha is highly active on LinkedIn and has more than 5,000 connections with nearly 1,200 recommendations from students and professionals worldwide, and this explains that why the course provided by Shine is at par beneficial for learners. Having such a vast number of recommendations is highly commendable.
