At Openhouse - we think of educators as entrepreneurs. Just like any entrepreneur, they also need to keep improving their business & service with time. We support educators with shared spaces, marketing & technology to make their lives easier. This way, they focus on what they do best - teach!
The shared economy has revolutionized transportation (Uber, Ola), workplaces (WeWork) and travel (Airbnb, OYO). We believe that it can be equally impactful in the world of education!
Our mission is to inspire people to open their minds! We encourage them to chase new dreams, discover new paths and create new hobbies for the 21st century. For parents & students, Openhouse is where they can learn everything under one roof - from chemistry to creative writing, math to meditation, dance to yoga, physics to public speaking, book reading to robotics, college to career counseling and the list goes on.
We are a team of Stanford & IIT grads who've worked in Silicon Valley and in India at companies such as TrueCaller, Microsoft Research, Reliance Jio, Jabong Labs, Milaap and SAIF Partners. We believe in creating an awesome work culture & hope to inculcate some of the best practices we’ve learnt over the years. We started our journey last year in Kolkata (India’s education capital).
