Parth Nachane: The Education Disruptor

Parth Nachane, creator of The Robobox

Naresh Karmalker caught up with young serial entrepreneur, Parth Nachane, whose venture, The Robobox, is poised to disrupt the education scenario and make learning fun!

The Teenager Today: Hi Parth. Welcome to The Teenager Today. Would love our readers to get to know you more, so let me get straight down to it. You started your first company at the age of 17. At the age of 21, you have launched The Robobox! What fuels Parth Nachane’s drive for innovation and entrepreneurship?
Parth Nachane: At 17, I only had big dreams, a world to win and nothing to lose. With this motivation, I went to Lovely Professional University (LPU) with the sole purpose of being a part of its happening practical campus with over 1,00,000 students and teachers. I thought it might just be easier to start any business with people my age.
My drive has always been to learn, dream big and achieve it, not just for myself but for my company, team, vendors, students, schools and society as well. I always wanted to do business and create something of value to society that will leave my mark and legacy.

TTT: How did the idea of The Robobox emerge?
PN: Back in my school days, I used to search for good robotics and science kits. Till date, students are stuck with options like robotics only in practical education and the robot kits available are, sadly, nothing but toys and not actual robotics kits.
With the rapid sophisticated technological revolutions that are a hallmark of the 21st century, students should be innovators and not consumers. When our government came up with the National Education Policy (NEP), I thought it might just be the right time for me, personally, to make that shift and start The Robobox as it also connected with my childhood pain and my desire to do more, using technology. We are now doing that with The Robobox in the education sector.
