In the year 2019, the founder of the GoGo Group, previously a successful business trainer and coach; Mr. Shrikant Shinde who now is a renowned international entrepreneur in the business of Electric Vehicles which he started back around 2011, had a passion for training and coaching. And thus, was born GoGo Foundation under the banner of GoGo Motors Limited, a support system for the electric vehicle and the education industry inclined to electric vehicles.
Being a Non-Profit organization, GoGo Foundation within a span of less than a year covered multiple activities; let's take a walk-through of those accomplishments!
Firstly, what can come through without having a good team! A team comprised of designers, editors, photographers, musketeers (marketers) etc. is a creative magenta. And yes foundation has it all.
The journey started off with an idea to educate, support innovation and accelerate aspirants dreaming to ride into the future with E-Mobility. Looking at the scarce resources who can fit into the EV shoes, Foundation came up with training programs and parallel joined the incubation centre. If you're unaware what an incubation centre is; here's what you need to know - An incubation centre is usually managed by a non-profit organization that provides an environment for startups to develop by providing essential services and support. Through which was registered Kimi Motors Pvt. Ltd. an innovative launch pad, a technology secret unleashed into the world of Electric Mobility. Kimi Motors is an electric scooter and moped company and also a contribution to embrace e-mobility.
Being an inventor, innovator and a technocrat; Mr. Shrikant wanted to bring his passion of being a trainer and coach back to life. Prevailing to which; was conducted Foundation's first training program, Motorcycle Electric Retrofit Dealership Training Program. The program mainly focused on providing training to people interested to take up a dealership after qualifying the program and the tests conducted as a part of the training module. More than 15 batches in just a span of 6 months have been conducted with new programs, new modules, newer updates; the idea of having this program is stronger than before. The latest program conducted and which would be long held further is 'The Electric Vehicle Business Associate Qualification Program', for aspirants wanting to have their own business, own brand and eager to associate with us in this race of Electric Vehicles.
And what about the students wanting to be educated, trained in Electric Vehicles you must think!? No worries; GoGo Foundation has a solution to that as well. EDINAC; a Centre of Execellence established in the late 2019 is a support system designed for the Education systems across India. As mentioned earlier in the blog, the scarcity of skilled resources in India relevant for the EV industry is to be looked at and thus bridging the gap between the Industry and the academia has become a needful step to resolve this issue. GoGo Foundation through Edinac has setup Electric Vehicle labs in colleges and has been conducting one day career alignment programs, introduction on electric vehicle programs in colleges and other courses have been set. Students across India can step forward and participate in the courses, training, career alignment sessions, workshops, internships, innovation programs organized by Edinac. A step in bringing the industry to the academia and making a future with a skillful resource.
GoGo Foundation also has taken a step to promote awareness on Electric Vehicles and its benefits to the environment. Being that mentioned, participating in promotional activities, workshops, exhibitions, college fests, events on Electric vehicles has been a part of its journey and the team has blown out on support for the same.
Being associated with GoGo Foundation is a blissful experience for a student, trainee, faculty, client or be it an employee.
