Entrepreneurs share their views on India's edtech sector and how they got into the space--By Jerlin Justus..
Sreepa Prasannan started her career as a hardware engineer in a small firm in Cochin, and then moved to Linux as technical server support. She also worked as a support analyst for a US-based insurance firm. Her long-time desire was to be an entrepreneur and use her engineering knowledge to change the education industry. In 2016, she, along with her father P K Prasanna Kumar and brother Sreenath Prasannan started Thivra Info Solutions, with her husband Praju Thampi S as the gaming mentor. Their solution is a purely fictional narrative game, which is also a learning app. “To reduce the size, we’ve planned and designed the game in such a way that players can access it even with minimum network speed,” says Sreepa.
