About Us

Started by two Stanford grads, Openhouse is re-imagining after-school education in India.

We believe learning happens best in person, but there is an opportunity to make this experience 10X via modern centers, technology, and powerful communities! We're building a network of learning centers with the best teachers in every neighbourhood. Be it math or meditation, chemistry or creative writing or even a film club - we have it all under one roof! The shared economy has changed mobility, workplaces, travel, and we are excited to bring this to education.
