Capital Number’s Journey With The/Nudge Foundation
Capital Numbers joined hands with The/Nudge foundation to tackle poverty, the greatest development challenge of all time. The/Nudge Foundation, a non-profit startup, is a collective initiative of some of India’s brightest entrepreneurs, leaders, and change-makers coming together to tackle the greatest human development challenge of our times – poverty.
At Capital Numbers, we understand the value of education and soft skill – the most significant prerequisites for the job. Inspired by the noble initiative taken by The/Nudge Foundation, we wanted to be part of their mission and contribute from our end as much as possible to help them in their noble cause. So, CN promptly went ahead with the noble cause by giving their website a makeover and also become their marketing partners.
“It’s a great feeling when you try your best bit to help such a cause. We understand the importance of education. So, we wanted to contribute from our end as well and we did what we can do better. We helped them boost their website” said much enthusiastic Mukul Gupta, Managing Director of Capital Numbers.
A Few Words about The/Nudge Foundation:
Education has been recognized as a fundamental human right for decades. It is an endless process of nurturing people, their environment, and preparing them to use their abilities and talents to contribute to the development of their society. India will continue to add 1 million to its workforce every month for the next 15 years. 25% of them come from impoverished backgrounds. 50% are school dropouts lacking the hard skills needed for a job.
