The Founder

CA DR. BIJAYA KUMAR SAHOO

Founder

Leadership Shaped by a Vision, Strengthened by Conviction.

“Revolutionizing the educational scenario of Odisha, with innovative approaches to nurture children through value-based and internationally bench marked standards, Dr. Sahoo created a model for many schools to adopt. His motto, ‘Be the best or different from the rest, the choice is yours’, reverberates in the heart and mind of every student”.

A pioneer, a visionary, a thinker, and a man of action, Dr. Sahoo is a man with a passion for excellence in education. Dr Sahoo is a Chartered Accountant, Cost Accountant and an MBA in Finance.  An edupreneur whose working philosophy is deeply rooted in the core values of honesty, hard work and transparency, resting on the pillars of people and processes. This philosophy is clearly visible at the educational institutions that bear the SAI name. He has been appointed by the Government of Odisha as the Advisor to Odisha Adarsha Vidyalaya Sangathan in the rank of Minister of State.

Dr. Sahoo, combined Indian values and cutting edge technology successfully, resulting in a fascinating journey as an entrepreneur. He founded the JSS Group in 1990, the first BPO in Odisha. It became a full-fledged BPO and IT hub with a workforce of 1200 within a short span of time. JSS also established the state’s first voice and non-voice ITes training centre, and the excellence in service it provided has been recognised by clients such as Citibank, Oracle, Citi Financial, and HDFC. It also bagged the Best BPO Award from the state government in 2008.

In 2007, Dr.Sahoo established the first Government of India approved private Software Technology Park in Odisha, an enterprise that won the Best STPI Award from the Government of India in 2013 and 2014.

Not one to rest on his laurels, after practicing as a Chartered Accountant for 25 years, Dr.Sahoo decided to follow his true passion, education with a purpose. He wanted to create a space that nurtured children in a manner that resulted in them becoming responsible and principled human beings. Meticulous planning, hard work, and many, many sleepless nights later, the SAI Group took shape. In the year 2008, he established SAI International School and thereafter SAI Angan, SAI International College of Commerce, and SAI International Residential School, all of which bear testimony to his vision of bringing education of international standards to Odisha.

Dr.Sahoo’s philosophy, ‘Every child is a leader and can make a difference to the world’ defines his roadmap for the years to come. His long term perspective includes imparting quality education in pre-schools, where Howard Gardner’s principle of multiple intelligences will be practiced. His plans also include setting up a world-class Teacher Training Institute, and assimilating the best practices from across the world through active collaboration. A greater vision remains and that is the setting up of SAI International University for Education, Management, Business and Liberal Arts.

Let’s Build a Better India Through Education.
