Krishna Ramkumar is an IIT graduate and has more than 2 years of consulting work experience with the Boston Consulting Group. While studying for the IIT JEE examination, Krishna realized the economic barrier posed by the coaching industry for entry into premier institutes. Furthermore, he noticed that many seats reserved for backward communities in these institutes remained vacant as individuals were unable to meet the minimum standards set by the institutes. Krishna is also a 2012 Echoing Green fellow.
