Mr. Piyush Agarwal CEO and Co-founder, SuperProfs (Aurus Network)
Piyush is a graduate from IIT Kanpur and Stanford University. After completing a master’s program at Stanford University, Piyush returned to India to set-up Aurus Network with the vision of enabling a million teachers connect with a billion students using technology. Piyush and the team developed a cutting edge technology which enabled various education & training institutes to deliver HD quality live classroom sessions at extremely low internet speeds (as low as 100 Kbps). This led to setting up of 100s of remote classrooms across the country where students could come and attend the live classes being delivered from top cities. Later, the team launched SuperProfs (stands for “Super Professors”) to make the classes of the best professors/teachers for various competitive exams available to students online itself, so that the students could attend the classes from their home. Today, more than 15 lakh students use SuperProfs every month and study from India’s Best Professors!
