 “We want to collaborate with at least 200 brands or companies, which will benefit our 15000+ students.”

“There was a trend in our country, to settle the life with good jobs, it is changing now, and more changes need to be done. You will have your own workplace. For this, you need to acquire modern IT skills. By using your skills, you can do freelancing or have your own business. You need to change the thinking of working your whole life. This will reduce the unemployment rate and will increase the employment opportunity in our country. It will also increase the economic growth of the country. “

The initial planning of Shikhbe Shobai in 5 years is that Shikhbe Shobai will train around 20,000+ skilled IT entrepreneurs in the country.  Apart from the business, when we ask him what‘s the most important lesson life has taught you?

Abdul Kader Soud said we have to keep pace with the following trends. If I would have taught like my forefathers that I need to start my career with a job, then maybe I wouldn’t get a chance to say these things today. If I say the one single thing that changes your life, that is skill development. After completing my graduation in Business studies, I acquired IT skills. After acquiring various IT skills, I started working as a freelancer myself and then started working as an entrepreneur.

What message do you want to give to fellow businessmen?

I will tell the entrepreneurs to always think of modernizing the business, and also try to connect IT with it. If problems could be solved through IT, it will create great customer satisfaction and there will be a chance to have those customers back again. IT helps a lot in business development.
