Remember to celebrate the milestones as you prepare for the road ahead.

As WordsMaya turns 5 this week, we are taking a pause to look back and rejoice in the memories of some key moments in the journey. As in every startup journey, every day is a hustle and gives memorable moments but these five moments are special and completely changed the course for us.

From obscurity to the limelight: Our very first moment of fame. Just one article about us in Pune edition of the best selling Marathi daily ‘Sakal’ made us talk of the town in May 2017.

Getting recognition from the supremacy: This one-hour rendezvous in October 2017 with the Vice-Chancellor and Registrar of Savitribai Phule Pune University put us into the category of credible course providers in the eyes of institutes all across Maharashtra.

Talk of the nation in just one minute: Often good things come in a small package. Just one minute for all this: getting selected in nation-wide competition SmartFifty: solutions to transform India, getting associated with IIM Calcutta (subsequent seed-funding) and becoming the talk of the nation with this prime time feature on NDTV in May 2018.

‘Udaan’ into a new trajectory: The launch event of our All-New-WordsMaya app in the presence of senior academicians and industry stalwarts in June 2019 launched WordsMaya into a different growth trajectory.

Blessing in disguise: When a tiny virus is shutting down countries and imprisoning people in homes, our partnership with AICTE has put our online courses in the smartphones of thousands of students across India and allowed learning to continue even in lockdown.
