Olcademy was founded by Mukul Verma. In November, 2017 while he was traveling across North Eastern India, he saw a tribal man doing something creative using a bamboo stick. He went on to make a chair and a decorative item from that stick. Other people who were also witnessing this, complimented the man on his meticulous efforts and went on their way. Interesting, from the crowd stepped out a foreign traveler who approached the man and offered him hundred rupees. The man took it with utter glee on his face and left the scene. Mukul had been observing all this, he was quite curious to know what had transpired between the foreigner and the tribal man. He posed the same question to the foreigner who went on to tell him that the man was a local tribal craftsman who had been showcasing his skill on demand of that foreigner. On further inquiries, the foreign traveler disclosed that he was a well-established craft seller, and chairs like this had a really good market value. He was learning how to make them so that he could sell such chairs and export them for a large amount of money. This was the case of a highly skilled person being underpaid. People with varied skillsets who can be differently valued are currently not able to generate the corresponding economic value. This shows that people with valuable skills from distant places do not have a proper platform which can increase their visibility throughout the globe and pass it on to upcoming generations. This triggered an idea to build, an interactive medium where capable individuals can share their skills with anyone across the globe and can earn a living from it.
