The founding team members Rahil and Tirth come from small towns (Chittorgarh and Ladnun respectively) and attended the country's most premium educational institutes, which accorded them a lot of privilege. Having educated and aware parents enabled them to reach where they got. However, not everyone is as fortunate. Many of their friends who they grew up with still struggle to find gainful employment and achieve their full potential. Story is not too different for millions of small town Indians.
Rahil and TIrth met in Ahmedabad where Rahil was finishing his MBA at IIM Ahmedabad and Tirth was a fellow at Teach for India, an NGO, teaching grade 2 kids in a low income private school, when they decided to do something about the poor levels of education in their state Rajasthan. They spent a lot of time studying the best schools across the globe and with detailed research, formulated structures for best practices. Since both of them are engineers, they understand both the utility of tech and the revolution its going to unfold very well, which they leverage for making their schools world class.
