If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?

Start a new thing with patience and financial support. Financial soundness makes the project more sustainable.

What problem does your business solve?

NSRIC offers high-quality, multi-disciplinary education, training programs, and online courses in different disciplines. It also offers on-demand (in-person) training programs, R&D services, cybersecurity solutions, and seamless visa and migration services. NSRIC is committed to establishing the K12 school branch, career college, and university in strategically important locations around the world through its Partnership Program. International conferences, webinars, and workshops are part of the effort to bring people together. NSRIC facilitates and enables all of these and beyond, so we can disseminate knowledge and serve others for their holistic well-being.

NSRIC is committed to creating a healthy and inclusive learning environment. The main purpose of NSRIC is to teach our students not only what they should learn but also how to learn it. So, we welcome you to NSRIC, where we are building professionals and leaders through knowledge dissemination.

What is the inspiration behind your business?

In general, maximizing profit is one of the primary motivations for some commercial entities. However, the primary goal of NSRIC is to disseminate knowledge and then generate revenue as a business entity for a sustainable business existence. The institution is based on shared principles of honesty, transparency, mutual respect, responsibility, teamwork, and commitment. Disseminating knowledge and the learning process have no boundaries by age, race, faith, colour, gender, geographical location, and time. Therefore, every one of us can disseminate some knowledge to others, where conventional academic degrees and professional qualifications are not at all a barrier. Lifelong learning and experience can make a huge impact on others if professional expertise, experience, and knowledge are shared in meaningful courses with optimal synergy. This is where NSRIC steps in as a mentor and facilitator, taking full responsibility for bringing together individuals’ talent, skills, and expertise with their experience, knowledge, and potential for the future. We work in partnership with organizations, entrepreneurs, and students to create a solid link to achieve our goals of serving humanity in education. We place great value on our donor partners, who are unconditional supporters of the organization.

What is your magic sauce?

NSRIC vision is to deliver high-quality education to our global community while creating a sustainable environment as a basis for lifelong learning in this diversified world. This commitment cannot be easily achieved without strong willpower, research competencies, and teaching philosophy. Therefore, our highly qualified instructors and professors are dedicated and act as a vehicle to keep the attention of the student’s mind and retain them in education.

What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?

The objectives of NSRIC are set out through its subsidiaries. For example, NSRIC International School in Toronto (NIST) has both on-campus and online education systems. It has physical campuses in Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan, operated under the NSRIC’s partnership program. NIST provides on-campus and online access to education for students at the kindergarten to grade 12 level, creating seamless dissemination of knowledge from early childhood to graduating from high school. NIST is an accredited and inspected private school in Canada under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Education (MoE) in Ontario and offers credits toward the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). OSSD certificate opens a smooth university admission for students in any Canadian and North American universities, including other top-ranked universities worldwide.

NSRIC Sustainable University in Toronto (NSUT) is an ongoing project which will be an online university and is yet to be approved by the Ministry of Education, Canada. Another ongoing project, NSRIC International College in Toronto (NICT), will be a Canadian government-approved and recognized degree-awarding career college from which the diploma degree and certified courses certificates will be awarded to students in different fields of study. Our teams and experts are working on both projects.

World Association of Nature, Science, Education, and Engineering (WANSEE) is a philanthropic organization working with professionals through which NSRIC wants to bring people together to serve society and as a platform for students, educators, researchers, executives, and professionals. International Conferences on Nature Science and Engineering Applications (ICNSEA) is another subsidiary organization of NSRIC. WANSEE supports ICNSEA in organizing international conferences, workshops, webinar series, seminars, and training programs in different places of the world and virtual mode. Every year, ICNSEA will organize different international conferences under the umbrella of NSRIC. WANSEE is committed to disseminating knowledge in the form of books, journals, and conference proceedings under ISBNs (e.g., ISBN: 978-1-7778946-0-3) through the NSRIC Conference and Publications Unit (CPU). NSRIC secured these North American ISBNs through the Canadian ministry.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?

As a startup organization, we have dealt with a financial crisis within the organization.

How can people get involved?

NSRIC believes that every person should have access to equal opportunities for education, healthcare, and financial freedom in their daily lives. We pursue education and knowledge for our own well-being as well as the wellness of those close to us and in our community as a whole. Your donations allow us to deliver this admirable cause to the doorsteps of the less fortunate members of our neighbourhood. To accomplish these objectives, the NSRIC runs a variety of non-profit organisations. These institutions include the Aziza Trust, NSRIC Bangladesh Foundation (NBF), NSRIC Education City Chattogram (NECC) and the World Association of Nature Science, Education, and Engineering (WANSEE).

Aziza Trust is a member of a charter with the goal of helping the community through healthcare, namely through providing services to seniors, widowed individuals, and students. NBF works primarily with students in grades KG through 12 who require financial assistance to continue their studies. NECC helps kids in rural communities who have lost all hope of getting an education and returning to school. WANSEE is a professional organisation dedicated to providing financial aid for healthcare, education, and training initiatives to advance career paths through NSRIC online education.

Students are empowered to change our future, but they need your help today. Every day, NSRIC students accept the challenge of changing themselves and our world and work hard for success. We do our best to help them overcome obstacles and access the best educational experience possible, but they also need your support. From providing financial assistance to students to supporting unique learning opportunities, your financial contributions help our students reach their goals and fulfill their dreams.
