A thought leader, Mr Kansal launched India’s first EduTech platform and its successor Crack Academy is a niche novel pan India which is set to change the face of the education industry in the country.
Crack Academy was born out of an understanding that a major proportion of small town students lagged behind due to lack of national level coaching facilities, appropriate guidance and classroom experience. Crack Academy is filling this ‘huge need’ by delivering an affordable and accessible Ed-tech solution through the establishment of partner-owned classroom centres in small towns in order to bridge critical learning gaps with a visionary approach.
