While in Accenture London, he realised the power of technology in reforming the Indian Education ecosystem which has been largely afflicted by inadequate physical infrastructure (schools, colleges & educational institutions) and scarcity of skilled educators. The seed of thought of leveraging technology to create disruption in Indian education space was sown in his mind. The impact that Genext Students has created in India’s education space in a rather short span has been well recognized. It has been awarded as a winner of RED HERRING TOP 100 ASIA COMPANIES award (2016) and has been listed among TOP 40 EDU-TECH start-ups in Asia Pacific (2015).
