Race2Excellence Private Limited is not a sudden response to one of the most lucrative opportunities in the country’s learning services sector. The venture which started off as a sole-proprietorship business in 2016 was a brainchild of Race2Excellence CEO Jinto Mathew since 2014. When the company began its operations, the idea was only to provide the oft-heard coaching classes for Civil Service Examination for school students. As it spent more time with the students the company realised something was missing. Diversity.

It was seen that our students came mostly from the well-to-do sections of the society. While this made our financials well, our conscience was not. It is the vision of UPSC itself to bring in all types of people from all parts of the country into the steel frame that holds this country together. We decided to carry the UPSC vision in our area of operation too. The grassroot level.Race2Excellence’s attempt to reach out to the grassroots took us to schools in Kerala and provided foundation courses to school students in 2016 and. Going to school was us learning too. Race2Excellence discovered that cost is the major or only limiting factor in a child’s wish to aspire. It was seen that students from certain strata have never even heard about such an opportunity that the country provides. Race2Excellence wanted every child it interacted with to get a taste of Civil Service Examination and this led to the designing for RACE2IAS Model Civil Service Exam and other quality learning service for all students across the country.
