Bhargavi is the Founder and Developer of Glorifire, a free app that helps schoolchildren who aspire to innovate and build startups. Speaking on the occasion, Bhargavi said, “Your dreams become real, when you sing in your own voice”.
She further added, “Glorifire is intuitively designed social learning platform that brings ideators, peers, mentors and funders at one place, which makes its easy for the students to take their ideas to fruition”. A 17 year old Class 12 student, Ms. Goel wears several hats including Head Girl of DPS Vasant Kunj, a Spell Bee finalist, an NTSE scholar and a KVPY fellow. Her moment of inspiration came from none other than Mr. Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India, at the launch of Startup India in January 2016.
Mr. Sanjeeva Shivesh, CEO of The Entrepreneurship School in Gurgaon and Bhargavi’s mentor said, “She felt frustrated that most young children full of ideas, loose it all, as there is no mechanism of capturing, sharing and building up these ideas collaboratively. Glorifire app precisely solves that need”. Glorifire is an android based free app that helps school students in the school projects and entrepreneurial ambitions. These projects could range from STEM to social sciences and languages to arts. Mr. Shivesh added, “Building a startup venture is extremely difficult for anyone. But, Bhargavi has impressed us with her steely determination and passion to make a difference in her community.”
At the conference, Mrs. Melanie Kells, Dean of Canadian International School delighted the audience with an interactive session on use of mobile technology and integrating freely available apps in the curriculum. She said, “Bhargavi’s idea is very powerful. It can bring thousand of students at a common platform, which can be the beginning of a startup revolution”.
