In the new era of digitalization, significant attention has shifted to online teaching platforms. With massive amounts being invested in new tech start-ups to completely digitalize the process of teaching and providing recorded online courses. Nevertheless, real-life coaches, tutors and mentors found it onerous to compete with such a huge organization.
To provide a helping hand and an edge MillionsCenters entered with a platform for real-life mentors and teachers to leverage technology to aid their growth. While simultaneously being social is the key to successful learning, why else would IITs and IIMs be appreciated so much.

Inception of Idea :
"When I was looking for a dance class for my granddaughter I found it so difficult to search for the best in the vicinity. That is when I realized that there is a huge gap between the seekers and professionals. To bridge this gap and with a vision to bring all the above listed categories on one platform we launched MillionCenters. We aim to tap Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3 cities by 2020" said Surinder Singh, Managing Partner, MillionCenters.
