"Team work is the secret that makes common people achieve uncommon results."

Our Story

For the past two and half years, Back to basics has been building a technology-enabled learning solution to enhance the learning experience assimilating all its core values; making learning meaningful, time sensitive and search friendly without compromising on the quality of the content while making it clear & concise.

 

Over time, Back to Basics has repeatedly modified the approach to the problem several times until we formulated a solution that makes learning Science and Maths interesting and efficient by using techniques that promote curiosity and amplifies retention.

 

What started as a constant search for smart solutions by one student has taken shape as a company and its flagship product.

Arjun Reddy

CEO

Arjun is a pathfinder in spirit and engineer by degree. He moved from a field engineer in a mega drinking water supply project to cofounding Trio systems once he learnt the tricks of the trade.

 

The invaluable experience from handling various projects from end to end taught him real people management. Once he exited Trio, he did a  research project with Govt of India; thesis on understanding what success meant to different people.

 

This helped him understand that, "successful people don't do different things but they do things differently." Rigorous brainstorming made him realize that if kids were exposed to relevant learning tools their path to success in life would become easier.  Thus was born the idea of Back to Basics and its core philosophy, "We can manage what we can measure."
