Finding the weakness is the job of the Society and Identifying potential is the job of a Mentor. When I am struggling in my life people are telling me thousands reason for which I am going to fail but only he showed me my potential and help me to be successful by improving that potential.

He is the one who always motivates me for my work and corrects me in a positive way if I am wrong. He is not just a mentor but a friend with whom I can share my any problem. He is my inspiration and because of him and his support we are making our dream of MyCTO true.

Shivangi Singh


Chandan sir have been a very supportive person always. I remember the day when I knew nothing about startups. Meeting a genuine person like him in a market full of fake people is like finding a needle in a sack full of nails.
