edhack is a company born out of our campaign #Unboard which was active during May of 2018. We reached out to over 1,00,000 kids all across the country, trying to normalise the idea of failure in a broken education system, and promoting alternative ways of educating ourselves and finding meaning.
During the campaign, we onboarded counsellors to help us assist kids in charting alternative learning plans for themselves, and created a directory of institutions that do not judge kids by grade cards. We also reached out to companies for asking them to redesign recruitment policies to treat self-designed learners fairly.
Thanks to the thousands who signed up to show support for our vision, we realised we could take up a much larger role in shaping the learning-livelihood pipeline. In February 2019, we registered ourselves as a for-profit partnership - the edhack company. Now we are not just crusading for a better future, we are co-designing it with institutions and companies.
