Experifun to Enable Learning of Science Concepts in Real Time
Rakesh Kumar and Vivek Pandey completed their Electrical Engineering from IIT BHU, Varanasi, after which Rakesh completed his MBA from IIM-A. The latter has over 15 years of industry experience in business strategy and implementation, with giants like Accenture, Oracle Financial Services and CGI both in India and abroad. Vivek brings 13 years of software experience, he was associated with companies like Hughes and Microsoft’s Research and Development division. He even founded a startup called SlateWire and holds a joint patent with Freescale.
The duo collaborated to start Experifun, a Bangalore-based startup in May 2013. A chance meeting with an IIM-A professor, where a discussion on a simple engineering question couldn’t be answered by either of the two led them to the realisation that despite being alumni of top schools in the country, they could not recollect basic concepts. This is how Experifun originated–a place where students could explore, visualise and be fascinated by the concepts of science.
