Meet Your InsideIIM Student Team for 2015-16

The big change that we are making at InsideIIM this year is decentralizing the platform and letting the platform be run by current students studying in top schools and universities in India. From over 350 applicants from schools across India, after a 3 stage process, we have our first ever student team! The student team has already been working for the last 2 months and is slowly taking over the day-to-day running of many aspects of the platform. The term of this team will expire in February 2016 when a new team will take over. The Student Team will be involved in creating quality content, launching new services and in generating more revenue for the platform. Most importantly, their goal will be to make platform more useful for all stakeholders.


Message from the Founder

“It’s been 4 years since I got out of Business School and same is the case with many others who have been working on InsideIIM. In order to stay with the times, it only makes sense to let the people for whom the platform was created run it. We have done that with this student team.
They are brilliant and represent the best talent in India. They may make mistakes because they are inexperienced but then if you try something different you are bound to falter somewhere. It will be a learning experience for them and for us. It is a first-of-its-kind experiment which promises tremendous growth for all of us involved.
Personally, I am just excited to work with so many bright minds from across India. I strongly believe that the student team will help in strengthening the platform and their efforts will result in a much better experience for users of InsideIIM. “
– Ankit Doshi, Creator –

It gives us immense pleasure to introduce you to the first ever Student team of InsideIIM which is our first step towards our theme of “Decentralization and Democratization” for the year 2015-16. We feel proud to hand over the baton to these future leaders and make the platform “of the students, by the students and for the students”.

Srinjoy Ganguly, from IIMA, was acquainted with the benefits of Inside IIM since the phase when he was busy preparing for his B-school interviews.
