Mr. Vikas Kakwani Founder & CEO, AAS Vidyalaya (Anytime Anywhere School)
Through sheer perseverance and focus, I have come a long way from the narrow lanes of the old Meerut city where I was born and brought up. After graduating in Electrical Engineering with Honours from IIT(Roorkee) in 1993, I completed my post-graduation in Management from IIM(Lucknow) in 1995, majoring in Marketing & Finance.
Since then I have worked from ground up to leadership positions for 20+ years across FMCG, Telecom & Real Estate sectors in India & Middle-East, in Marico, Coca-Cola & Aircel in India and Damac Properties & Scion International in Dubai.
I can be called a "Foundation Expert", having the analytical & organizational capabilities along with commensurate experience in "creating from scratch". A lot of mumbo-jumbo but in brief, I love to set things up and get bored by routine.I have just launched my education start-up focusing on bringing the school drop-outs to the mainstream. Check www.vidyalaya.org.in for more info.
I am a geek, a technology lover and have always generally stayed ahead of the curve when it comes to awareness, implementation and early adoption of tech. I am sharp and very good with numbers. I also write a blog as a way of expression.
I believe in living in Today and my favourite quote is "You are not dead till you die".
I live in Mumbai with my wife and a teenage son.
