We are a bunch of tech-savvy edupreneurs, held together by our mutual love for technology and passion for teaching, resolved to revolutionize the way students prepare for exams. We believe that this journey should be made thoroughly enjoyable for a student, concentrating on concrete skill-building rather than rote learning, and the results are bound to follow. We vouch for the all-encompassing empowering capabilities of modern technology and think it holds the potential to design the cutting-edge tools that can help students in extracting the maximum value out of their time. We love mentoring and are highly passionate about helping students in making them realise their true potential.
Abhishek calls himself a perfectionist (pity!) and insists to be defined by his zest for numbers, logic, reason, optimization and problem-solving (yawn!). A crazy cricket aficionado, Abhishek has spent more than a decade working in the field of preparatory education, cracking numerous exams and mentoring thousands of students in the process. He has done his Bachelors in Information Technology from University of Delhi and his Masters in International Business from Panjab University, and was working with Samsung before co-founding Meritshine. When free, Abhishek loves to catch a Hollywood flick, kill time on the web or grapple with an already-solved probability problem to optimize its solution.
Samir is a sports buff who is always keen to try his hand at any kind of sport ever invented by the mankind. An alumnus of Hindu College and IIM Lucknow, Samir is a quintessential teacher whose fervour for mentoring would be comparable only to his love for his better half. Before he found his true calling, Samir was into commodities trading with Olam International in Netherlands. While not working, he can be found helping the neighbourhood kids with their chemistry basics, reading on his Kindle, browsing on his Mac for some scoop on the Syria conflict or the New World Order, or watching anything and everything on YouTube.
