Class 101, the country’s premier college planning company, has opened its 46th franchise location in Brevard County, FL. This is the fifth location in Florida, joining locations in Blackwater, Doral, East Hillsborough, and Treasure Coast. This location is being opened by Ven Puskur.
Ven has been a successful businessman at many different business entities. However, at each business he has worked at, he has found a common thread of wanting to work with young people and helping them accomplish their goals. Ven is a University of Pune graduate with a degree in chemical engineering. He also has a degree in Computer Science from the University of Houston and an M.B.A from Fordham University.
Understanding the importance of education, Ven saw an opportunity to help others continue their education. Holding degrees from three different universities allows Ven to bring a great perspective to his students. Class 101 not only helps students find the right college for them, they also mentor students and guide them towards picking the major that is best for them.
Ven had worked with many different businesses that had a focus on helping young adults. Looking for a new venture, he went searching for an opportunity where he could help high school students. After meeting Tom and Betsy at Class 101 training at Palm Beach Atlantic University, he knew that Class 101 was the right path for him.
Class 101 is the ideal business model for individuals who want to empower students, serve families, and inspire greatness in the next generation of young people. The company’s proven methods and individual delivery of services have been guiding students for 22 years, and, as a company and team, they are excited about their growth nationwide. At regular individual meetings, students receive assistance with every aspect of the college planning process, including creating the optimal college list, building a strong resume, exploring majors, and improving test prep scores. No area of college planning is overlooked when working with a Class 101 college advisor. Class 101 has continued to provide world-class college planning virtually as we navigate the COVID-19 crisis.
“The power of Class 101 is that there is a need for college planning services everywhere,” says CEO and Founder, Tom Pabin. “No matter where we open a location, there are students who are overwhelmed by the college planning process and are looking for a trusted mentor to help them discover what is possible for them. Whether they are looking at top tier colleges, or a local in-state college, we help them navigate the process and help to make it more affordable for families.”
