Springboard is an online education startup with a big vision for transforming education using open online learning. We believe we are in the early days of a revolution that will not only increase access to great education, but also transform the way people learn.
Our early product gets a lot of love from users and we've been written up in TechCrunch,Economic Times and YourStory, and have been on the front page of HackerNews, ProductHunt and Reddit.
We are just over two years old, seed funded and growing fast. We have been selected for Microsoft Accelerator Batch 4 (Spring 2014) and Nasscom 10000 startups Warehouse. Some of our investors include LinkedIn co-founder Allen Blue, InMobi co-founders Naveen Tewari & Amit Gupta, Junglee co-founder Anand Rajaraman, 500 Startups and The Princeton Review founder John Katzman.

The founders - Parul and Gautam - are lifelong learners, and are passionate about education. With around 10 patents and many more research papers in various technologies, the founders have always been thirsty for knowledge and innovation.
We are alumni of the Indian Institutes of Technology, Wharton, and UCLA. Before Springboard, we worked at IBM Research Labs, Bain & Company and InMobi.
