Catalyst Group definitely works as an accelerator in students’ path towards their success.


“It all started during my UPSC preparation days. I used to struggle a lot to get access to proper guidance and relevant study material. The lack of guidance urged me to intervene and do something to solve this problem, which is faced by most aspirants. This was when I thought of establishing Catalyst Group, aiming to make quality teaching and learning easy and affordable for every student in the country,” asserts Mr. Akhand Pandit – Founder & CEO of Catalyst Group.

Mr. Akhand understood the wide gap and thought of doing something about it rather than letting others face the same problems he faced. With this motivation, he founded Catalyst Group in 2017 with the sole aim of helping students across the length and breadth of the country.

I started studying, and the first government examination I sincerely prepared for was the UPSC. I started teaching to meet my expenses. Whenever I had to learn a particular topic, I started teaching others who were studying the same topic. Not only did this help me make some money, but I also understood the topic better,” Mr. Akhand states.

Mr. Akhand cracked the UPSC examination and was inducted into the Indian Engineering Services.
