ICT-in-education innovator

Shantanu Prakash, chairman and chief executive, Educomp Solutions Ltd (ESL). Innovator of the unique BOOT (build, own, operate and transfer) model to enable teachers and students across the country to utilise new ICT (information and communication technologies) to improve classroom teaching-learning outcomes, and for schools to painlessly become owners of sophisticated comp-uter labs, Prakash has developed ESL into India’s most high-profile ICT-in education listed company which went public in 2006. An alumnus of the Shriram College of Commerce, Delhi and IIM-Ahmedabad, Prakash promoted the Delhi (Gurgaon)-based ESL in 1994 to serve the dormant needs of K-12 education. Currently ESL provides IT infrastructure, digitised curriculum and content, and teacher training services to 29,000 private and government schools countrywide, in which over 19 million students learn the Educomp SmartClass way by paying modest user fees of between Rs.80-150 per month.

Since then, ESL has rapidly diversified its services and products mix signing an agreement with the Singapore-based Raffles Education Corporation, the largest education provision group in the Asia Pacific region, under which the two companies will introduce the entire suite of ESL’s products and services in China; promoted its Roots and Wings presch-ools division and its ‘Millennium’ K-12 schools. The company has also entered into a joint venture with the London- based Pearson Group to promote a chain of vocational education and training centres across the country.
