Akshay Chaturvedi is the founder of Leverage Edu, a career platform that uses artificial intelligence to mentor students and help them with college admissions. It has raised $3 million in funding, led by Blume Ventures & DSG Consumer Partners, as well as from individual investors. Chaturvedi came up with the idea when he was in business school in 2015 and then incubated it in Draper University’s entrepreneurship program to launch operations in April 2017. That same year he was selected as India’s Prime Minister’s Champion of Change.
Akshay is a big believer of long-form migration (from place A to B), & democratization of access to higher education – both help people level-up, and unleash a new life for themselves, with new possibilities. There got to be no cap on how far and big you can dream! This mission means everything to me, and hence I am “devoted” towards solving for it every day of my life with Leverage Edu.
