What’s Ahead

  • Expand the number of schools that partner with us on Vidhya.io. We first plan to expand to local schools in Chennai of varying economic and demographic representations. The eventual goal is to spread throughout Tamil Nadu and then across India before going global.
  • Formalise the license structure for schools, so that schools get a finite number of licenses that can be made available to their students and each of them gets used efficiently.
  • Expand the bandwidth for Vidhya.io so that it loads faster and works smoothly even with a larger volume of simultaneous traffic. Currently it is on free tier plans that is only meant for testing purposes.
  • Conduct Budding Techie 2022 in a much more engaging manner, with greater public participation and perhaps with more attractive incentives for the participants. This can also act as a leverage to attract partnerships from schools.
  • Seek corporate sponsors and/or other significant donors who can offer sizeable donations that will fund our ambitious goals.
