After pursuing his MBA from IIM Indore, Navin has had a brief stint with Pepsico as 7UP Brand Manager. After this, he plunged himself into fixing the broken education system of India.

AOL School is his most recent outing to completely revolutionise the school system in India by combining the efficiencies of an online learning platform with those of the experiences of a physical schooling atmosphere to create a hybrid model where the student no longer has to go to school. In his vision, physical schools will be a place where students visit to learn extra-academic skills and the rest can happen virtually.
