How ProjectVala is Making Students’ Lives Simple

ProjectVala is a startup that assists university students with their research papers and academic drafts. Their entire team, including subject experts, writers, editors, and proofreaders are all about creating processes, products, and services to make students' lives easier.

Being an experienced director with a demonstrated history of working in the Banking and Financial Services Industries, Shwetank Soni realized that people often have critical thinking skills. However, it is a pain point for them to put their thoughts and insights into a structure. Ultimately, it also affects their career and academics. 

Shwetank always had a keen interest in business since his early years. His enthusiasm to help students writing exceptionally versed academic drafts turned his dream into realization. 

In April 2020, he launched ProjectVala, with the aim to help students with the guidance they need in writing the finest academic drafts. 

ProjectVala believes that successful academic writing hangs on a comprehensive structure of ideas, research, analysis, and a consistent criterion. And his team is sparing no effort in bringing their clients customized and finest academic drafts. 

The founder claims that more than 85% of students have no idea about working on their academic writing. Since then, there was a curiosity to create ProjectVala. 

Initially started as academic drafts, guidance for students now comes with different non-academic services as well.  

In 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all the educational institutes were shut, and students’ online learning became a necessity, which helped ProjectVala take off skyrocket.

It claims to have more than 700 users within nine months with about 40.86% revenue growth and about 75% user growth, month on month.

The ProjectVala team is currently building some of the products, including a mobile app, Alexa Skill, downloadable reading materials, and India’s first plagiarism checking software.

“We focus on catering to all the elements needed in a write-up, highlighting the short communication and meeting deadlines. Our entire team has a sense of responsibility in compelling, which has kept us on toes for each delivery of academic drafts,”

explains Shwetank.

The founder believes that the idea and the timing of ProjectVala have played a huge role in its success.


Making the Right Decisions

For Shwetank, the company’s scalability and finding the right team with the right skill were a bit challenging. 

He recalls,

“Even though it was tiresome, they have succeeded in growing together with the team. and all the efforts are paid off.”

At present, ProjectVala is focusing on international expansion with its recently started operation in London and soon planning to open another office in Australia. 

ProjectVala is India’s first web application to provide academic drafts online, and no one else offers such a service symmetrically. Even on the global stage, only a handful of platforms from certain parts such as Bulgaria and London offer such guidance to students of their respective geographies. 

However, the founder claimed that these platforms’ quality is not sufficient for students of elite universities. 

“Challenges are a part of life and, more importantly, the entrepreneurial journey. If your boat is not hitting the waves, you are not making progress, and you are not pushing yourself harder. The difficulties of entrepreneurship are opportunities in disguise. They help us grow our business and ourselves.”
