Arjun is a pathfinder in spirit and engineer by degree. He moved from a field engineer in a mega drinking water supply project to co-founding 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. His association with IIMB for a short period helped him to understand that “Theory can never replace action”.
His brief stint with civil services exam and his passion for teaching brought him close to the problems faced by students and what started as a constant search for practical learning solutions to address the learning concerns of one student over time and multiple iterations took shape as a company and its flagship product. Thus born Back to Basics and its core philosophy, “We can manage what we can measure.”
