    Nishanth Jha

    from Jalandhar, Punjab


I am Nishant Jha, son of a government servant, a pre-final year undergraduate pursuing his Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science (3rd year). I recently got selected as one of the 300 delegates from all over the world for the very reputed HPAIR (The Harvard Project for Asian & International Relations) - Harvard College Conference which is at Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA from 14 February 2020 to 17 February 2020. I've been bearing the expenses of my past events on my own, hence this is my first crowdfunding campaign and I seek your help in making my efforts reap fruits.
The Harvard College Conference is truly going to serve as the gateway for my dreams and is definitely going to be a door for my future endeavors in the field of social entrepreneurship, health and sustainable development.

I'd highly appreciate any contribution made for this, be it very small. I would be immensely grateful to you and willing to contribute my expertise for you/ your organization. Sharing a bit about my background, apart from pursuing Computer Science Engineering, I am venturing to launch a startup named BlockLabs which will provide services to clients in the Blockchain industry.
I am also a proficient Android Developer and have technically assisted upcoming startups based out of Punjab. Some of the achievements that I'd like to share are :
  • Winner of Microsoft hackathon for consecutively two years 2017, 2018
  • published a research paper entitled "vehicle to vehicle communication using IoT approach" in a reputed journal.
  • currently working on a publication on computational geometry.
A very famous quote by Zig Ziglar says:“You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.”
In return of your help, I can leverage my technical skills to assist you in making a mobile application for your idea/organization, help you with a website or a social media campaign. (Kindly refer docs attached)
