"Proud to have guided a generation of knowledge seekers"
A trailblazer, a visionary leader, social worker, and first-generation entrepreneur, Vikash Kumar Singh broke new ground by introducing professional education for the 'weaker sections' in India.
Born in a family of Indian Air Force, Singh not just had the opportunity to travel extensively across the country and pick up multifarious skills, languages, and interests, he also had the zeal to do things differently, the passion to excel, the conviction to break frees and the will to achieve.
In 2008, Singh realised that there is a huge gap in the education system, right from the grass root level (toddlers onwards).
The need for proper mentoring and education at an early stage among the toddlers prompted him and his team to study the parameter to bridge the gap and that start an institution involving tiny tots and toddlers.
Today this institution 'Genius Kids' is considered to be one of the best in making a solid foundation for tiny tots during their formative years, thereby enabling them to become compatible and competitive.
He has been several times accorded with awards and honours in the field of innovative thinking and public speaking and was awarded the Rashtriya Rattan Award in the year 2002 in recognition to his outstanding services to the society and individual achievements in nation building through innovative educational activities at All India achievers conference in New Delhi.
He was also awarded the Society Icon 2017 by Magna and also received the Top 50 SME index in India from ASSOCHAM in 2016.
Moreover, on April 12, 2019, Genius Kids received the certificate of recognition and Award as The Top Pre Schools Of India ranking 2018 at School Leadership Summit 2019.
Also, on March 8, 2019, Annex College was awarded the India's Education Excellence Award 2018 as India's Best Institute for Management and Technical Education in Eastern India by Berkshire Media LLC, USA.
"I always believe that you cannot achieve your goal and excel in life without being passionate. I always strive for my goal with full planning, strategy, conviction, and an objective to not only for my personal growth but also to give back to society and grow with the impact I have created through my work," says Singh.
Vikash is a first generation entrepreneur having no family background in business or entrepreneurship.
Sharing his mantra of success, he says, "The flavour of success lies in your conviction to break free, your passion to excel and your will to achieve. Proper utilisation of time to generate goodwill and create social impact is entrepreneurship for me."
"I belong to a middle-class family and hence I was not born with a silver spoon in mouth. I started my journey with nothing except a dream. But, today when I turn back and see that more than 10,000 dreams have become a manifest reality with our institution, I feel proud of it. I take pride in having guided an entire generation of knowledge seekers. I have done a bit for the society at the age of 41 and wish to do a lot more in the future."
