About Ashutosh

Partner at a social enterprise providing Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) and analytical consulting for education organisations and NGOs.

Before the entrepreneurial venture, he led the strategic operations for a leading KG chain across rural India. Donning multiple hats, he was the go to person for special projects.
With a clear understanding of logistical challenges in making operations work in the most unconnected and unsupported areas, he brings the clarity on how quantifying operations is the key towards efficiency.

The passion towards education and social development came after 10 years of corporate experience in the field of analytics, demographic & consumer research, retail, marketing, and IT Consulting.
