Vivek Varshney, Founder
Keeping a close tab on the education sector for years made Vivek Varshney perceived the importance and need of amalgamating technology and learning. The transformation that technology is capable of bringing in academic attainment incited him to trigger off an Edtech firm to bring forth top quality, personal guidance through this technology practice platform for students. It is an ideal app that helps the tutees to derive every knowledge and teaching that they desire to obtain. It provides video lectures, concept notes, unlimited question bank for self study and practice. There are test papers which help the student figure out how prepared they are for their upcoming exams. "I realised that technology has the potential of bringing a lot of transformational changes in the education sector. And so we decided to merge these two platforms inaugurate an e-learning application to deliver a practice-based and personalised lessons," asserts Vivek.
The main challenge pertaining in the edtech industry is the lack of awareness and adoption of the concept personalised education. This is because the conventional method of learning and teaching is still dominating the education department. Many Students and parents are still very sceptical about using the online or e-learning platforms. They are acculturated of using reference books, teachers, personal coaching or guidance. And the lacks of fair and square tutorials and teachings have made the progressof this sector quite protracted. As an edtech startup, Speedlabs was also bothered by these snags in its initial days. As Vivek states, "The very first step of
To inbuilt certitude amidst people, our team has done detailed investigation and worked effortlessly provided authentic lessons and lectures." Hence, to provide the best courses, the company makes sure to get all the lessons verified by experts and professionals. Their constant endeavour is to help the students gain practical and logical knowledge that includes their complete involvement too.
