BrightCHAMPS, a live-learning platform in life skills such as coding, financial literacy, communications, and robotics has instituted up a first-of-its-kind BrightCHAMPS Global Curriculum Advisory Board. The Board’s most pressing agenda is to help the $650-million valued edtech to make its curriculum and classes more accessible, inclusive, and customisable to students’ unique learning needs across its 4 verticals and all the 30 geographies it services.
The appointment of the Board is in line with the company’s vision and mission of becoming the world’s most learning impact-driven educational organisation by empowering the world’s 2 billion kids with next-gen life skills to help level the playing field for success, regardless of gender, physical, socio-political, cultural and financial considerations.
The Board will be chaired by Deborah Quazzo, Managing Partner of GSV Ventures, a multi-stage venture capital firm focused on the $7+ trillion global education and workforce skills sector. Ms Quazzo will be joined on the Board by industry stalwarts such as Gurucharan Das (award-winning author, management guru, public intellectual, and former CEO of Procter & Gamble India), Rajen Sheth (Co-Founder & CEO of Kyron Learning), Sreejit Chakrabarty (Director of Robotics & Artificial Intelligence at GEMS Education, Jack Buckley (Vice President of People Science at Roblox) and Julie Mercer (Principal, Nous Group). The Board’s first meeting is scheduled for later this month.
Speaking of the major milestone, BrightCHAMPS Founder and CEO, Ravi Bhushan, said, “It’s a historic moment for us, at BrightCHAMPS. The excitement and determination of the Board has strengthened our belief that learning truly has no boundaries. We are confident that with the combined force and multi-disciplinary expertise of these world-renowned experts, our dream of developing the world’s most comprehensive and cutting-edge curriculum while still being accessible to kids everywhere is very close to coming true!”
