About Educational Initiatives (EI)

Educational Initiatives (EI) is an ed-tech company that leverages the twin levers of cutting-edge research and technology-based solutions approach to revolutionise how children engaged in the K-12 education space learn. Our vision is to create a world in which children everywhere learn with understanding. Our goal is to reach a multitude of children across different strata of society, irrespective of the kind of education they are receiving today or the curriculum they are following.

We achieve this goal by building products that focus on diagnostic assessment and personalised learning. Our platforms cull relevant and customised intelligence from over five billion data points to deliver content in the form of questions, activities, games and videos to assess students‘learning levels and provide explanations, feedback and learning inputs for all stakeholders. This data treasure has been built over two decades and is one-of-its-kind in the education industry.

We believe in a scientific approach to conceptualising, designing and building our products. This stems from a dream to discover SCIENCE OF LEARNING that can systematically be made available to teachers. EI's mission is to build this ‘Science of Learning’ which provides a repository of data and techniques that can be used by teachers to help children learn better - a big improvement over today's situation where teachers struggle alone to help students learn. EI's work on assessment and learning has already helped create banks of misconceptions, common student errors and the like and these are being shared as usable insights.
