Speaking on the initiative, Millionlights CEO Akshat Shrivastava said, “We take pride in the fact that this initiative will empower millions of lives. Our vision is to give access to relevant content which is curated and that helps up-skill our subscribers.”
The channel’s content has been sourced from Microsoft, RedHat, Saylor and other global initiatives to offer enhanced and updated learning skills to the users. To foster, open source education, Millionlights has collaborated with an OTT (Over-the-top) provider YuppTV.
The programme aims to cater to a “neglected market” and provide them with real world skills to at least “50 million learners in five years”.
