Whiz Launchpad is a unique opportunity that allows users to submit an assignment from which the best assignment gets the exceptional chance to collaborate with an industry expert. The nature of these collaborations could include 1-1 mentorship, funding, paid work assignments, fast-tracked auditions, and more.
In addition to being a Whiz Expert, Guru Randhawa plays a critical leadership role in the organization. Excited about the venture he says, “Whiz League is here to revolutionize learning and make many dreams come true.”
