How Rishi is building a better working world

“As new technologies emerge and required workforce skill sets evolve, the education sector would need to stay on top of industry trends to deliver relevant, high-quality programs that address different situations and learning needs.

I work with key stakeholders in the education and EdTech sectors to design and implement transformative strategies that address these issues to help achieve better student outcomes and a favorable ROI. I also help them identify and deploy solutions that support these strategies and improve operational efficiency. In addition, I help private equity investors assess new investment opportunities with the aim of realizing short- and long-term value.”
