At 2.6 million-plus subscribers and 400+ videos, inspirational, self-help YouTube channel Josh Talks’ English channel isn’t exactly in the same league as its inspiration, TedX Talks. The latter has 10X more subscribers than the five-year-old Indian channel.
However, Josh Talks’ reach—it has a total of 9.3 million subscribers and around 1,500 videos across its English and nine other regional language channels—provided the Gurugram-based company the ideal jumping-off point to launch its upskilling product Josh Skills. Its Hindi channel is the most popular, with nearly 4 million subscribers.
Launched in 2019, Josh Skills offers mini courses in English and other regional languages such as Hindi, Bengali, and Marathi.
