In 2015, Sumukh started his first company, Teendemy, aiming to bridge the gap between academic education and professional success through courses designed for teens. These courses all address key skills necessary to succeed in the 21st century, and focus on subjects that aren’t covered in modern education. Teendemy officially launched a few years ago, and has 20+ courses and 2600 students across all courses signed up so far.
Sumukh currently runs Ask Insiders, an AMA series enabling young professionals and students to connect and interact with really interesting people. AMAs are livestreamed on Twitch - subscribe to the page here. They’ve conducted AMAs with founders of billion dollar companies, best-selling authors, and board members of Fortune 500 companies.

Sumukh founded TEDxLynbrookHighSchool when he was a sophomore at Lynbrook High. TEDxLynbrookHighSchool branches off TED, and is an independently organized event designed to instill a love of learning, channel creativity to develop innovative solutions, and inspire through knowledge. TEDxLynbrookHighSchool started back in late 2014, and ran its inaugural event in September 2015. Preparations are underway for TEDxLynbrookHighSchool's second event in late 2016.
Thank Gosh It's Fresh is a radio show committed to giving teens a voice in the media. With media dominated by adult views and perspectives, TGIF aims to allow teens to speak out on prominent issues in the world, as well as issues concerning them. TGIF airs every Friday from 8-9 PM PST on 1170 AM, and features either a teen discussion, debate, or an interview of someone we feel is doing extraordinary things to help the world. Sumukh has been part of this program since back in 2013, and continues to take part today.
Above all, Sumukh is a student at Lynbrook High School dedicated to make an impact on society, and his peers in general. It's this motivation that inspires him to start many of his projects explained above. He hopes to major in business upon graduating high school.
