Founder Story - Kaushik Ravi
We all have a story and experiences that drive us forward. Mine include: being a 1st generation immigrant, going to a non-target university, recruiting as an international student, graduating during Global Financial Crisis, when I lost my (only) full-time finance job offer during my final year.
Fast forward a few years -I made Private Equity Vice President at Goldman Sachs by age 28, Director in Private Equity by 30, and Vice President and Chief of Staff in Goldman Sachs Investment Banking prior to that.
While I worked hard, I couldn’t have gone as far alone - it was mentors and professionals along the way from whom I learned how to accelerate in my career, build the most important skills and drive impact. Over my career journey - as a candidate as well as a senior Investment Banking & Private Equity professional, I realized that there are very few high-quality, high-impact resources for career development, skill building and mentorship - that actually show people what career success looks like in the real world. I founded Elevate in 2019 to solve that challenge for the next generation of business leaders. We bridge the wide gap between academic learning and practical skills needed for top careers in business, finance and technology. We do so by partnering with successful professionals from top firms and careers, bringing their decades of experience to design and deliver the most relevant, real-world skills to our audience.
Just less than 12 months since launch, we're proud to have impacted 30,000+ students & young professionals across 50+ undergraduate universities, 10+ top MBA universities and 100+ top companies and counting!
