KOCHI: In perhaps the biggest contract win for a startup from Kerala, Fourth Ambit Technologies, a firm that was virtually incubated in Kochi’s erstwhile Startup Village, has signed a pact with All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) for setting up online community portals for over 10,000 technical institutions across the length and breadth of the country.  

The deal will see the edu-tech company working with AICTE and its member institutions to leverage its online platform and technical infrastructure to set up private online community portals for AICTE approved institutions, a senior company official said. Such a community portal will help these institutions to onboard and engage alumni, parents, corporate partners and other well-wishers, thereby facilitating value for their students and faculty. 

The MoU was signed by AICTE chairman Anil D Sahasrabudhe and Fourth Ambit CEO Rahul Das at AICTE office in Vasant Kunj, New Delhi. “Setting up online community portals for over 10,000 technical institutions across the country and fostering multi-dimensional value for over 50 million users is a daunting task. But, backed by a robust tech platform, led by an inspired team, supported by corporate partners, enabled by AICTE and state universities, we are confident of creating history and nurturing a self-fulfilling value-based ecosystem,” says Rahul Das, CEO of Fourth Ambit.

A supporting ecosystem will be set up at the Fourth Ambit platform level by onboarding partners across themes like skilling, entrepreneurship, networking, jobs, internships, faculty capability building, higher education, social causes, and technology evangelism.

“AICTE has signed MoUs with other organisations as well for leveraging quality initiatives for the students and faculty at large in terms of internship, job opportunities and skilling tests. We hope the project with Fourth Ambit will synergise the benefits of the same under one umbrella for the student community,” says AICTE chairman Anil D Sahasrabudhe.

The project will be activated in a phased manner across the various states with the AICTE regional office and state universities playing a key role in the rollout. Fourth Ambit, co-founded by four classmates from Government Model Engineering College, Kochi, has been operational since 2012 with over 1,000 college communities already on its platform.
