Sukhmeet Singh Ahuja—Entrepreneur
Sukhmeet Singh Ahuja, who arrived in Melbourne at the turn of the millennium to do his MBA from Victoria University, decided he wanted to transform people’s lives by providing top quality education. Seven years later, he fulfilled that vision when he founded Angad Australian Institute of Technology in 2007, which he named after his son.
Training commenced in 2008 with one course and four takers for it. Today, Angad offers 17 qualifications to more than 500 students from 30 nationalities.
More than 3,000 students have gained valuable career skills through Angad. “For me the definition of growth is to grow equally in all six spheres of life—spirituality, contribution, career, relationships, health and wealth,” says Ahuja, who also supports a number of charities in India and Australia.
“Throughout my journey, I have always been supported at every step of my life by my parents, wife, and children,” he says. “I believe the most important moments in my career are watching my students and staff excel in their personal and professional lives.”
