Stocked Academy was founded by Devansh Shivhare in April 2021, during the second phase of lockdown but it all started when he was 16-year-old and got fascinated about the stock market from the red and green ticker movements shown on business news channels.
Since then, he was curious about learning and diving into this field but he decided to continue this passion along with his formal education. So as any normal person he decided to learn it from YouTube but found it almost impossible to get the knowledge in a structured manner. Then during his graduation, to satiate his zeal of learning stock markets he decided to take up diploma in finance and learnt a lot from there but was not completely satisfied from the course due to inexperience of the teachers who were delivering the content of the course.
During his MBA in Finance, he decided to take the responsibility of teaching stock market to the youths on his shoulder. After his R&D in cities like Jaipur, Lucknow, Delhi and Kanpur, he found that the people have alternatives in these cities thus he decided to give shape to his concepts in Agra as he realized that the youth of Agra was lacking these kinds of facilities and had limited opportunities. Then he started Stocked Academy with a team of 4 with an objective of financially educating masses and trained 70 students online during lockdown and got an overwhelming response from students and as soon as the covid restrictions were lifted, the online classes turned into offline classes in a 200 sqft. office-cum- institute in multiple batches which has now transformed into a 2000 sqft. institute with premium infrastructure and a team of 15 members.
Now, they are the only institute in Uttar Pradesh who provide live trading sessions along with their training program under the flagship program Live Mentorship Program (LMP) in which they teach fundamental and technical analysis from basics to advance strategies. Later during December 2021, Rishi Sharma joined Stocked Academy as a co-founder with the similar view of spreading financial literacy among masses and decided to expand the business to colleges as well. In January, 2022 Stocked Academy got approved under New Education Policy (NEP) and have educated more than 10,000 students of various colleges of Agra till date and have partnered with more than 20 colleges in Agra and near regions as their educational partners for vocational courses in Banking and Finance and are looking forward to expand to nearby states.
In the meanwhile, they realized that the perception of masses of Agra isn’t good about stock markets so they decided to educate the masses by organizing free workshops time to time by the title “Stock Market- a new outlook”. The main aim behind these workshops is to change the mentality of the people who still consider stock market as gambling and enlighten them that it’s an emerging field where one can make career in many ways and guiding the students on how can they start their journey in finance.
To help the students who take up the decision of making careers in finance, Stocked Academy came out with various courses in which they enable students to take up the NISM and NCFM certificates which are a pre-requisite when entering in this industry. They take responsibility of making one a job ready personnel by getting him clear the certificates, giving practical training, advanced MS-Excel, personality development and providing internship opportunities to getting them placed in reputed firms.These courses enable the freshers to take their first step in field of finance and can step up the ladder by enhancing their skills and adding more qualifications in their profile like CFA, FRM, CMP, CMT, etc. What Stocked Academy does here is they provide the students a platform to build their career in finance and excel in their lives.
In September 2022, they achieved a milestone of training 3000 students in last one year offline as well as online through their mobile app. They also offer free courses on their app and are active on various social media platforms. Through their Instagram, they teach complex concepts of finance in a simplified manner and also share regular updates daily along with their view on the market movement, their regular market update series is widely appreciated by a lot of traders as well as finance enthusiasts.
