361° Minds (361DM) was founded by Gopi, Ram, and Ritu in 2006, aspiring to change the way corporate training conventionally happened.
As batchmates at BITS Pilani, the three (Gopi, Ritu and Ram of class 1991) struck a chord with each other and have remained good friends ever since. They walked their separate career paths for 15 years, and came together again in 2006. Gopi and Ritu have been entrepreneurs since 1997, and joined by Ram in 2006.
At 361DM, they understand each others’ strengths and limitations, and perfectly complement one another’s competencies. Today, the team functions with a near-perfect understanding and a strong wavelength match, with a focus on making ‘today better than yesterday’ in the world of learning & education.
Career Launcher India Ltd (CL), a Delhi-based education services company offering test preparation courses, is investing $1 million in 361 Degree Minds Consulting Pvt Ltd (361DM), and picking up a significant minority stake in 361DM.
This will foster the growth of 361DM and help them reach their simple yet hard-to-achieve goal of putting leadership knowledge to work among corporate managers. Congratulations :)
