The story of Strategum‘s growth started in 2005 when Mrs. Nupur, the founder of Strategum, a fashion designing fanatic herself, left her lucrative career to usher a change in the education management space. She always believed that “For a tree to grow healthy, the seed has to be carefully handled and sowed”, which in bigger picture was the desire to bring a change in the teaching system of early childhood education.
She observed that pre-schooling needed a revitalization to bring it at par with international standards and yet make it affordable to all sections of the society. This idea was conceptualized to introduce a Pre-School in Raipur (CG) – Jack n Jill. Mrs. Nupur was the mastermind behind this concept and managed everything herself to start this project that went on to be recognized as one of the best pre-schools in India.
Following the success of the first project, Mrs. Nupur teamed with Mr. Yeshwanth Raj Parasmal, who was then working as Chief Operations Officer of MATS University under Jain Group of Institutions, Bangalore. In order to understand the systems, processes and practices of education management, the couple decided to study abroad. In the year 2007, Mr. Yeshwanth Raj completed MBA in Education Management from University of Southampton, UK, and achieved distinction standing amongst the top 2% of the students. Leaving all the lucrative job opportunities in the UK, the like minds returned to India, with the personal and professional goal to standardize and bring a change in the education system.
Thus, a small company with a bold idea was established, with Mr. Yeshwanth Raj as Managing Director. After returning from UK, the first opportunity that came along the way was to establish a premier institution at Raipur named “Kruti Institute of Technology and Engineering”. The success of the project paved path to the incorporation of Strategum, which was finally incorporated on 23 December 2009 and named “Strategum Eduserve Private Limited”. The work of Strategum and its MD Mr. Yeshwanth Raj was acknowledged nationally when he was showcased by national channel Zee Business in their popular series “Swadesh” (Click here to watch the program) on 12 and 13 December 2009.
The plans and vision of Strategum got a boost when Dr. Gururaj Karajagi, a committed educationist with over three decades of experience in teaching and leading institutions, consented to be the Chairman. The company was fortunate to benefit from the commitment and dedication of all the ‘Strategytes’. Mrs. Kahkasha who joined the company at inception as Manager – HR, is presently working as Vice President and driving change in the company at strategic level. Similarly, Mr. Pawan Namdeo, Head – New Business Initiative, is leading Strategum forward with market expansion and penetration.
Strategum made its mark as a leading Education Management company with successful projects like AVS Presidency International College (APIC), Raipur, Mayoor School (MSR), Pragati College of Engineering and Management (PCEM), Raipur, ARPA River Valley, Bilaspur. The taste of success was sweetened further when His Highness Maharaja Gaj Singh of Jodhpur acknowledged Strategum for their professional work with Integrity during the launch of Mayoor School, Raipur.
