Despite lots of efforts, India’s current education system can’t keep pace with how quickly technology is changing and they lack the resources to adapt. They have less focus on the practical implementation of concepts. To bridge this gap, a Professor turned entrepreneur, Dr. Nidhi Khurana took the foundation of GoGlobalWays, an Ed-tech online platform. Her vision was to introduce children to STEAM-related fields at a young age and encourage them towards an integrated, cooperative approach to learn from failures. Nidhi believes it is vitally important in education and the future success of the nation.
Dr. Nidhi is a well-respected Computer Science Doctorate. She believes in holistic learning, in-depth research, and hands-on teaching. As a Professor, she is involved in providing training in various computer technologies and administrative work.
GlobalWays AND ITS SERVICE PORTFOLIO
GlobalWays is an Ed-tech online platform for kids with holistic learning through STEAM education which caters to K-9 [age group 6-13]. They believe the early exposure to STEAM learning and education is critically important to prepare children for the competitiveness and dynamism of the 21st century. GoGlobalWays offers a wide range of Courses like STEAM, Coding, Robotics, IOT, AI, Machine Learning, Game Designing, Android App Development, and 3D Designing.
THE BIGGEST STRENGTH OF GLOBALWAYS
Dr. Nidhi proudly shared, “Our Revolutionary Curriculum develops the skills & knowledge required to excel in the real world. The content is designed Grade-wise by Academicians, IITians with the help of parents. We let our product quality and superior student experience do the talking. We make sure a child is learning and not falling for a sales gimmick. We believe in productive learning and not a rat-race.”
HURDLES ON THE WAY
Dr. Nidhi believes that India is moving away from the male-dominated culture. Discrimination is still highly visible in rural as well as in urban areas, throughout all strata of society. While women are guaranteed equality under the constitution, legal protection has a limited effect where patriarchal traditions prevail. But now, things have started becoming less challenging with time and by building a relationship of trust. Undeniably, the role of women in society has been radically changed in the past few decades.
MAINTAINING AN UNBREAKABLE FAITH OF CLIENTS
“Little Kids – Future of India are our Clients. I must say Children are our future, and by giving them the tools and the passion for S.T.E.A.M., we equip them to not only develop fulfilling and successful careers but set them up to find solutions for both the problems we struggle with today and the ones we will encounter down the road,” stated Nidhi Khurana.
CORPORATE ETHOS FOR TEAM
Commitment, Dedication, Obedience, Cooperation describes Dr. Nidhi’s young Energetic Team. She enjoys watching her team grow. Few employees joined her without much experience, watching them grow along with the business growth has been very rewarding. “It is like watching a child grow up,” said Nidhi. She provides them with a smooth work culture and Flexible timings.
‘Start with Why’ by Simon Sinek is Nidhi’s favorite book. This book explores why some organizations and individuals can inspire while others simply can’t. Inspirational leaders start with WHY. They create their reasons and beliefs first before figuring out the WHAT and the HOW.

“Kids must be taught How to think not what to think”
PRIMARY CHALLENGES OF WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS
“I think that unfortunately, women must often work harder to be taken seriously and to prove that they can handle the role of leading a Business. Women also have it harder when it comes to their family life. Women often take on most of the daily parenting tasks, and juggling all those responsibilities can be a challenge. I enjoy all the daily tasks as a mom. I wouldn’t change it for the world. I don’t want to miss out on anything in my kids’ lives, but it does make being a women entrepreneur a challenge”, explained Nidhi.
A PIECE OF ADVICE FOR EMERGING LEADING LADIES
Work smarter. Everyone has heard, “work smarter not harder,” but it’s especially true for entrepreneurs. Dr. Nidhi learned early on that she wouldn’t be able to thrive if she tried doing everything herself. Instead, she surrounded herself with the right people and took advantage of every available resource she could.
Make everything a learning experience. As an entrepreneur, you have to solve problems and learn on the go. Even failure can be a good thing if it helps you grow.
Love what you do. Starting your own business is a very difficult thing to do, but it’s a lot easier when you’re passionate about your purpose; that’s the best way to stay motivated.
Develop your leadership strength. Remember that it is important to wear many different leadership hats. Being an entrepreneur has taught Dr. Nidhi to be a leader for herself and others; someone who continually reaches her goals and sets new ones.
Encourage and recognize others often. Surround yourself with good people and treat them well. Some of our best initiatives have come from the ideas of our staff.
