Purple Squirrel

The World's Most Innovative Companies 2016Like many other recent graduates, Sahiba Dhandhania and Aditya Gandhi entered the workforce only to discover that they were completely unprepared. Despite their education, neither had received practical training to help them tackle the realities of their jobs. So they decided to start Purple Squirrel Eduventures, a supplementary education platform that offers students hands-on, experiential learning to prepare them for their careers. Users can sign up for workshops and go on company visits in industries ranging from computer science to business to the arts. "In wanting to help students choose better careers, we realized we had to change the way they learned in the first place," says Dhandhania. In less than two years, Purple Squirrel has grown to more than 100 employees and helped organize 10,000 student experiences with hundreds of companies across India.
