Ranjan Mistry, youngest social entrepreneur
Even at the young age of 23, Ranjan Mistry wears many hats. He not only runs his own start-up but also mentors 150 start-ups across India. His start-up Campus Varta is India’s first EdTech Media that connects students particularly in rural areas, on global level.
It’s a definitive platform for Youths of India related to Campus Updates, Youth Mauka, CV profiles, Campus Events and CV Academics and other issues.
Ranjan founded the start-up in 2017 along with Jadavpur University alumnus Shubhechya Sarkar.
Aims to inform students about the news of academic institutions
The start-up was initiated by keeping in mind the importance of connecting students in rural areas to digital platform, “Students living in urban areas have accessibility to information about the happenings in schools, college and universities but the rural students are still not connected to it. They are not even unaware about social media. It makes them difficult to explore start-up events, workshops and other opportunities. We are training them to write articles about the events in their academic institutions. The articles are then published by us.”
Create opportunities for rural students
Ranjan, a college dropout and youngest social entrepreneur from Bihar told chalgenius that aim of Campus Varta is to ensure that students do not miss out any opportunities, “We not only publish news about campuses but also the opportunities. It helps students to keep a tab on them and apply even for near campuses too. We have monthly active users of over 40,000,” he added.
Partnering with prestigious institutions
The startup has partnered with institutes like IIT-Kharagpur, IIT-BHU, ISM Dhanbad, BIT Pilani, IIMs, and with Bihar-based colleges like IIT-Patna and IIM-Bodhgaya.
It currently provides its services to students in around 24 States, including Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Assam, Tamil Nadu, and Madhya Pradesh.
The team comprises 10 core members apart from the co-founders, and has 100 ambassadors from various colleges and universities.
Nominated by Forbes Asia
He told chalgenius that campus Varta has so far covered 2500 schools and 75 Universities across India.
Campus Varta was the first start-up from Bihar which was nominated by Forbes Asia for Forbes 30 under 30 as a semi-finalist.
