January 11: A woman with immense talents, high expertise, and brilliant leadership skills, powered by unmatched experience, here we are, sharing with you the life journey of Latika.
She is a qualified expert in Risk Management and Banking Operations, having held Leadership positions in leading BFSI organizations like CITICORP, ICICI Bank, and the Public Authority for Social Insurance (Ministry of Finance – Sultanate of Oman).
At heart, however, Latika is an Eduprenuer with grand visions for enhancing the scope of Tech Education and making it accessible and affordable for children from all sections of society.
After a successful professional career of over 28 years, she chose to invest in DIYA Robotics, aiming to provide cutting-edge training in the futuristic fields of Robotics and AI to school and college students and corporate executives.
How did she choose to transform herself from a successful corporate employee to a leading Eduprenuer of 2022?
We know success is intoxicating and, after long years in powerful positions in a high-profile industry, it is very hard to give up all these privileged and take the plunge as an Edupreneur. What was that one trigger that convinced LatikaRangaraj and made her what she is today- a successful and much admired Edupreneur?
The story behind the switch from Employee to Eduprenuer:
After completing more than two decades in the global corporate industry, Latika realised that there were immense opportunities in the new emerging and vibrant India to realise her long-cherished dream to branch out on her own and give back to society by sharing her rich knowledge and experience with the children and youth of our country.
Latika has been an immensely powerful mentor throughout her career, and many of her mentored juniors have made great strides in their lives and careers. Latika has conducted over 5000 Workshops and training sessions on Soft Skills for students at ICT Engineering College, BharatiyaVidyapeeth, and KPS Group of Institutions, amongst many other Foundations. Here, she has pursued her passion to enhance the future-readiness of school and college children by upskilling them, a hands-on way with the latest in technological developments that will enable them to be better prepared for meeting the demanding requirements of the future world.
Her father and father-in-law, who hail from humble backgrounds but grew to be highly respected powerhouses in their respective fields of work, have been her inspiration and supporters. Latika has honoured this legacy and been rightly recognised by peers and seniors in the Tech Education industry by way of awards like “Women Eduprenuer of 2020” and the “Humanitarian Awardee 2020”, to name just a few. These recognitions as a leading light of women entrepreneurship and leadership non-pareil are a tribute to the way she has successfully led DIYA Robotics as its COO, paving the way for DIYA itself to be a recipient of:-
Best Technology Solution Award
Most promising Tech Education Institute
Excellence in Robotics Education
Excellence in Futuristic Education
Best International Future-Tech Education Franchise opportunity
Most Promising Business for Women
Best International Future-Tech Education Franchise Opportunity
Alongside all these accolades, Latika has been instrumental in forging corporate partnerships with the likes of Intel Corporation for their campus to corporate technology programs.
In her own words, “I would rather be humble and deliver what I promise than over-claim and fail to meet the high expectations of my business partners, clients, customers, and children.”
Undoubtedly, an honest and truthful entrepreneur who never fails to call herself a beginner is what makes Latika a symbol of successful leadership!
