Sarvesh Agrawal, the Co-founder of Internshala, is a success story. His successful internship and online training business has assisted in fueling an ecosystem where students and graduates can improve their employability skills in an economy that values skillsets learned through internships and online trainings.
Born from a Marwari family in Rajasthan who was always expected to take over his family oil business, Sarvesh Agrawal has created Internshala, helping many students and fresher’s in India.
Sarvesh studied engineering from IIT, and has been a civil engineer for 6 years.
He always wanted to start his own company, so he worked for other firms and companies to gain more experience with what a startup does.
He quit his corporate job to start Internshala, which is an online marketplace linking students and organizations. He developed this business idea while still working at another company in 2011.
Initially, he started on his own and was the CEO of his own startup. However, he then hired interns to help him manage his startup as it became a bit hectic. He only published blogs related to internships in the beginning, but then they developed an app and a website that helped increase their traffic.
With the aid of Intershala, students are given many internship opportunities from a number of industries. This is what helped start-up Intershala grow to a 100 crore company.
