Amit Kumar Giri found his passion in helping students find their strengths and uniqueness while conducting free sessions for poor kids. He wanted to do something about it but had no idea at all about where to start.

He quit his well-paying job at media house of repute to start his company Brain Gateway. First few months were not something you’d want to happen in your own life. Everything he has saved was burning out and there was no hope of getting the show going. He has stopped believing that people would love investing in his idea and something interesting happened that he shares with big enthusiasm that helped him get his business off the ground. He saw a stranger at coffee shop smiling at him who eventually helped him scale his business.

Amit today is Founder of Brain Gateway, a company that helps children to analyze and identify their strengths using technology and counselling. Amit is also a certified dermatology consultant and strategy consultant to top media houses. A man with awakened inner conscience trained, mentored and motivated students across the globe including countries like Dubai, Sri Lanka, Bangkok, Singapore and Nepal. He always strived to dig deeper into matters related to children psychology.
