About Us

Krishworks started in 2015 with the aim of finding ways to effectively use technology to improve access to good quality education in India.

We had started by forming a team to participate in the Global Learning XPRIZE, a 15 million dollar competition funded by Elon Musk to develop software autonomously to teach children. We worked on a game to achieve that objective over a period of 2 years, growing to a team of 9 members working from across the country,  and finished among the top 38 teams, among the 198 teams which had participated.

We settled on our current model to help ensure that any new technology which is developed, can be used effectively by the everyone, immediately.
