A Journey of Triumph Over Adversity: Jahan Chaha Hai Waha Raha Hai
Yagnesh’s story is a testimonial to the adage that failure is merely a stepping stone to success. Despite facing setbacks in his academic pursuits, he refused to be deterred and chose to pursue a diploma in engineering. His indomitable spirit led him to secure the 7th rank in his course, fueling his desire to achieve more. Determined to excel, Yagnesh pursued a bachelor’s degree in engineering from Nirma University, Ahmedabad, a renowned institution that nurtures technical prowess and innovation.
From Employee to Corporate Trainer
Following his graduation, Yagnesh embarked on a career that took him to esteemed organizations such as TCS Bangalore, Fintex, Gateway, and many others. However, the call of his hometown and the longing for his roots drew him back to Ahmedabad. During the challenging times brought forth by the pandemic, Yagnesh found himself working with Jupiter Money, a leading startup. It was during this period that he was presented with an opportunity that would change the course of his professional life forever.
Discovering the Passion for Training: A 360-degree Change
As fate would have it, Yagnesh was approached by IDFC Bank to provide corporate training to their employees.

Witnessing the positive impact he could make on individuals’ lives through his training sessions ignited a fire within him, fueling his desire to explore this domain further. With this Yagnesh set the bars for corporate trainers in Ahmedabad belonging to the IT field.

Embarking On An Ambitious Mission
Being a family person, Yagnesh says, “Being a homesick person, I can’t stay away from home longer. And there are many people like me but due to fewer opportunities here in Ahmedabad in the IT field, I envision making Ahmedabad a leading IT hub. Bringing more opportunities here.”
As rightly said, ‘The suffered one knows it all.’ Yagnesh Modh knows what it’s like to the adversaries. He is on a mission to help students grab big opportunities while not being forced to leave their homes just in search of the prospect.
Walking With Achievement and Shambles

It is great to get yourself into the leading and well-known start-up and later on, start your very own company.” But to this various dares have moved along the way. Speaking of which the full-stack developer and IT trainer says, “ It is a daunting task to run a whole new venture single-handedly. And it is always a big question to match different mentalities. You need to set your bar at each moment. Also leaving a handsome salary is not as easy as putting a cherry on the cake.”
A Mistake To Thank Forever
Failure is never an easy digest. But Yagnesh believes that “failing in 12th standard has made me who I am today. It was meant to be and I consider it as destiny’s best mistake.”
Magic Mantra To Follow
“Take Risks. Life is short, don’t waste much thinking about it. If you’ll miss it, you’ll regret it. Find the grounds and take the risk. Keep your arms wide open for work, even if it is out of your league, it will teach you if you have an attitude of owning it and proving it.”YAGNESH MODH
