Ineuron basks in glory amid India’s edtech meltdown
What sets you apart from other players in the Indian Ed Tech industry?
At iNeuron, we started with the belief that every student and working professional has the right to learn about futuristic technologies like AI, ML, and DL. The problem we identified was the high cost and subtle quality of content. Most of the courses that were taught were an expensive affair and despite that, they were unable to teach students the technical know-how to make the knowledge practically relevant. We have reduced the cost of education and made these futuristic technologies accessible to everyone, without sacrificing quality; rather, we have designed a course that is directly required by the work industry. All course modules directly address the skills that employers are actively looking for in the world of technology. Understanding how advanced technologies work is imperative, but more importantly, understanding how to implement them in your industry and role is an essential step in integrating into the changing technology landscape.
Human contact with e-learning such as 24/7 technical support, expert connection, etc. is the second factor that sets us apart. No one in this industry offers such a range of student services at such affordable rates. We don’t just deliver the courses, we continually incorporate the feedback we receive and update our content gallery.
Moreover, what sets us apart is our desire for organic growth. iNeuron has never spent crores on marketing, we have grown our subscribers through our quality courses and services. Artificial intelligence is the skill of the century today, it is quite impossible to imagine the world without intelligent virtual assistants and yet there are endless possibilities waiting to be explored. We made sure that everyone should be part of this revolutionary transition.
Vocational training is seen as an expensive proposition; nevertheless, you claim to deliver it at an affordable price. Is this a long term solution?
Yes! The careful design of our courses taking into account the needs of each student has been the key to making this solution sustainable. Our flagship program “One Neuron”, an OTT platform for education, also serves this purpose. It will accompany you all year long if you subscribe. Students on the One Neuron platform have access to all technology courses, job readiness modules and project modules. There are over 500 courses available. As a result, we have eliminated the ongoing costs of learning one new course after another. Remember that all of our services are included in the subscription fee with no extra or hidden extra charges. We offer premium courses designed and delivered by the world’s top YouTube tech influencers at an affordable price. Anyone can sign up and get all the benefits without spending a fortune.
We have seen several start-ups lay off employees; did you do the same?
On the contrary, we have been on a hiring spree. We believe that innovation and operational performance must go hand in hand for real growth to occur. We have been very clear with this business model and have prioritized efficiency and value.
It is also important to recognize that with a return to normal, we are ushering in an era of blended learning with a hybrid model in the market. At the start of iNeuron, we were working on both online and offline segments, and now that we are back to normal, we are doing offline programs again. This is no longer an either/or situation; in order to maximize engagement and motivation, you need to offer the best of both worlds.
Please tell us about your burgeoning One Neuron concept and your plans for its growth.
The One Neuron program is an OTT platform for education, the first and only platform available in the world. To date, this program includes more than
500 courses covering nearly every technology available on the planet. It would be fair to say that we have unlocked the treasure chest of learning for students of all backgrounds.
We’ve adorned this treasure chest with world-class services that have a human touch (no bots or automated responses), such as 24/7 technical support, topic explanation, adding new courses, connection of experts, etc. “Working with us” is another of our initiatives that has real value; as part of this initiative, you can make your idea a reality by developing your product with us and using our R&D facilities. For those looking to join the world of employment, we offer employment assistance through the program, in which we also share your profiles with our partner companies to ensure you get the best deals. One Neuron is a unique solution to launch the career of tomorrow’s innovators, whether they are job seekers or creators. Because this program offers everything: learning, projects and preparation for employment, its growth has been exponential since its inception.
How do you see the current job market in relation to technology in India?
AI is one of the fastest growing technologies in the labor market today. The average annual salary of an entry-level artificial intelligence engineer in India is around 8 lakhs, which is significantly higher than the average salary of any other engineering graduate. An AI engineer at the highest level can earn up to 50 lakhs per year.
Amazon, Microsoft, and Google are just a few of the companies looking for AI talent. AI jobs make up around 15-20% of all jobs at most companies. It should also create 133 million new jobs in all industrial sectors. Artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning are undoubtedly the most discussed topics in the corporate world right now. It is currently the most sought after and exciting career field available.
