Amazing things Shyam's made
Prior to SciTal, built a premier Science Career organisation, called C-Drive, which emerged as the GoTo platform for Science employers and job seekers. At SciTal (Acronym for Science+Talent), we're addressing the legacy problem of 'Low Employability and Entrepreneurship) amongst Science graduates using a novel approach.

Having spent a decade with the Science ecosystem and having engaged deeply with the Education system, we've observed a deep state of 'inertia', which has hindered the future of scores of Science college students.

At SciTal we're building a 1 stop 'Student Support Platform' which is made accessible to student clubs. This platform will empower 'student clubs' to access 21st Century Learning (Problem Solving, Professional Skills, Hackathons, etc), Career Guidance & Mentoring and enable facilitation of projects, internships and jobs.

We won the Elevate 2019 Grant Award from the Govt of Karnataka and are poised to trigger a Social Movement!
