I believe that the very best business ideas come from seeking a solution to a problem, not finding it, having the courage and tenacity to solve the problem yourself, and then marketing it to others who would benefit from the solution as well. This is exactly what Kavitta Ghai did after saying to herself one too many times, "There has got to be a better way!" and deciding she was going to find it. Kavitta is not your typical entrepreneur... she founded her company, Nectir, as a college student who wasn't quite able to connect and thrive in the standard educational model as someone with autism and ADHD. However, one pivotal instructor changed her perspective by changing the learning environment, and suddenly, everything felt right. She excelled in that class, and set out to provide this same environment for students around the world. Kavitta Ghai is creating communities within classrooms and building the campus of the future. This insightful conversation has certainly changed my view about the future of education.
Co-Founder & CEO
Meet the woman who’s on a mission to completely revolutionize the way we teach and learn. Kavitta Ghai founded Nectir while she was still a student at UC Santa Barbara after spending the first two years desperately wanting to dropout of college. She’s always known that our 400-year-old education system needs a complete overhaul, so she built the solution she knew her and her peers needed. In less than a year, she got her entire university of 27,000 students to use Nectir in almost every class, and UCSB signed a 7-year license to keep this innovation at the center of their educational experience. Now, she’s on a mission to bring Nectir to every classroom in the world and transform the way we experience learning itself.
