OUR STORY

At Udhyam Learning Foundation, we believe that human potential is intrinsic to every individual waiting to be harnessed. We aspire to equip individuals so they can discover their own potential and claim ownership over their future.

We do this through state partnerships, contextualized curricula, product interventions, and business capability trainings to enable entrepreneurial mindsets and behavioural changes.

The goal for Udhyam is to build a thriving and supportive ecosystem, where every individual feels empowered to define their own path.

TO THOSE WHO WANT TO TAKE CONTROL OF THEIR OWN LIVES, WE SAY, BET ON YOURSELF.

OUR FOUNDER

Mekin Maheshwari

Founder and CEO, Udhyam

An engineer by education, Mekin has held entrepreneurial roles through his career, including head of technology at Flipkart. He deeply cares about people realizing their potential and succeeding in life. His success is owed, in part, to his compassion for people and his commitment to see them achieve their full potential and claim the life they want.

Udhyam Learning Foundation emerged from this unwavering faith that human potential is intrinsic and universal, waiting to be discovered.

OUR MENTORS

"Entrepreneurship solves a very important problem for the country. By building entrepreneurial mindsets, we are setting people up to succeed. I have seen Mekin do this phenomenally well in Flipkart and I am happy to see him scale this thinking to the entire country.

Essentially, Udhyam is teaching people "how to fish" and I am excited about the way talent in the organization is problem-solving for it.

I wish Udhyam all the very best!"
