SUCCESS STORIES

Our Fellows landed their dream jobs. It's your turn.

I didn’t just make amazing friends, but also got a chance to work on an industry project with Jiva. The feedback in the sessions was specific, and I learned to collaborate better and develop consistency.

Anudeep Veeran
Product Designer at Design Collective (Hero MotoCorp)

ownpath's structured program, mentorship, and resources played a key role in boosting my confidence, particularly in product thinking. Their continuous communication and support during the fellowship helped me hit the ground running after getting placed at Hero MotoCorp!

Ashritha Rao
Product Designer at Design Collective (Hero MotoCorp)

What truly stands out is ownpath's role in facilitating my complete career switch in just 6 months. This journey, from my background in civil engineering to becoming a full-fledged product designer, is a testament to the transformative, well-structured, and impactful learning experience!

Shubhank Sharma

The learnings that came with the fellowship and the feeling of being pushed to my limits, made it a highly rewarding and fulfilling experience. ownpath's curriculum is designed to enable us to practise what we learn from masterclasses through our projects.

One thing that interested me here was the mentorship format - it's rare for one to be able to work on projects that get reviewed by senior designers with the mentorship structured around it.

I had a lot of questions in general about the design process. My how's, what's and why's never were answered and that was my agenda coming into the fellowship - to build a strong design foundation and find my answers.

You know that you're receiving great mentorship when you leave a design critique session feeling pumped. I navigated ambiguous problem spaces & it's been very rewarding to see my ideas slowly crystallize.

I've learned how to break down a complex problem into its basic components and figure out the best way to solve it. In this process, I've rediscovered my love for design, stepped out of my comfort zone and learned so much.
