Wall of Love

Love what @ownpath_xyz has launched! This is *the* way to do professional upskilling - doing actual *paid* work for real customers on real world projects. No test, exam or unpaid project can compare. And the course becomes effectively free in the process. Perfect.

🧠 As an Ownpath coach, I found this program’s format to be really engaging with a whole lot to offer learners.

🚀 Ownpath is going places, highly recommended!

Sameer Bhiwani
UX Lead, Google

I left my job in Feb and have been having literally the greatest time ever the last 2 months learning at @ownpath_xyz from some incredible mentors.

I'd say the COVID induced masters FOMO has also vanished (perhaps temporarily, we&#39ll find), it's been that great.

Having spent quite a bit on design education myself and witnessing how it can be exclusionary, I love that @ownpath_xyz is pushing to make education accessible 🙌🏾

Mahima Chandak

Can’t express how much about design management I learnt with @ownpath_xyz ♥️

To all the aspiring UX designers out there!

Fatema Raja
Group Design Head, Gojek

I've been watching Ownpath for a while and interacting with grads and I'm super excited at what they're trying to create. They're trying to build a new, different kind of work-education hybrid model where students are engaged with potential employers from the start.

Chandra R
Product Designer, Gojek

There's so much to talk about in what I've been upto for the last two months.

🔥 things so far :
- learning from masterclasses and then applying it to our problem statement
- working with fellows who have become dear friends
- confidence in my ability to drive a design process
