Success Stories

100% fellows got their dream jobs. It’s your turn.

And here’s what the fellows shared with us

The learnings that came with the fellowship and the feeling of being pushed to my limits, made it a highly rewarding and fulfilling experience. ownpath’s curriculum is designed to enable us to practise what we learn from masterclasses through our projects.

Sayani De
Product Designer, Gojek

One thing that interested me here was the mentorship format - it’s rare for one to be able to work on projects that get reviewed by senior designers with the mentorship structured around it.

Shreyan Ghosh
Product Designer, Unacademy

I had a lot of questions in general about the design process. My how’s, what’s and why’s never were answered and that was my agenda coming into the fellowship - to build a strong design foundation and find my answers.

Sai Shinde
Product Designer, Jiva

You know that you’re receiving great mentorship when you leave a design critique session feeling pumped. I navigated ambiguous problem spaces & it’s been very rewarding to see my ideas slowly crystallize.

Mudita Sisodia
Product Designer, Obvious

The truly holistic experience at ownpath is reflective of its mission to help us become designers who craft impactful experiences.

Yashasri S
Product Designer, Frog

I’ve learned how to break down a complex problem into its basic components and figure out the best way to solve it. In this process, I’ve rediscovered my love for design, stepped out of my comfort zone and learned so much.

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.

Sidu Ponnappa
SVP Engineering, Gojek

🧠 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.

Mudita Sisodia
Product Designer, Obvious

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
Product Designer, Obvious

I kicked off the year leading a Masterclass on Design Management with the stellar team @ownpath_xyz and now we're following up with a Q&A for Design Leaders. Join us!

Kristen Skinner
Founder at &GSD, ownpath Instructor

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

Aishwarya Naik
Master's student, UW
