One fine day, we happened to discuss among ourselves, how we ended up doing the work we are doing at Alien Brains, when at one point of time during our respective college days, we weren’t exactly the toppers of the class. Digging deeper, we realized, all of us had one thing in common. We all knew well inside that if we were given to perform any tasks after having been taught how to do it, we had the self belief that we’ll excel at it.
Opportunities came, competitions came, and we always thought, next time we will be better prepared. And this next time never really arrived for most of us. And for the ones whose opportunities did arrive, it was not always on the right time.
Life happened, and we arrived at a position where we could look back and think, okay here’s how we can change the system. We thought this is what the country could really use, get mentored first and then appear for the competition, and do it for four different technologies. This way, instead of judging someone’s potential on what they know, we will be providing them the opportunity to prove to the world, how well they can grasp new concepts. And all they need is a chance, and give them any field, they will work long hours and make themselves perfect for that opportunity.
Being on the employer side for last 3 years, we always looked for talent, who has the potential to be street smart, a knack to pick up new things, and above all has a brain that enabled them to multitask and the courage and will to excel in whatever field they are asked to work on.
When we orchestrated the concept of this competition, we knew that we will always be able to make sure that both the participant as well as us, will be able to understand one’s potential and this competition had the capacity to give others what they didn’t have until then; an equal chance, where they can compete with others as well as with themselves, where they can truly discover what they are made of.
