Rahul Subramaniam
Co-Founder & Managing Director Athena Education

Rahul is an education coach and a Start-up co-founder devoted to building creative organizations that impact and uplift societies. His primary venture, Athena Education, helps students become the best versions of themselves and receive admission to top universities around the world.
Rahul went to high school in Fremont, California. He received perfect SAT scores and got into every Ivy-League college he applied to, finally choosing Princeton over Harvard. At Princeton, he studied Politics with a certificate in Political Economy. Post his graduation, Rahul served as a Director of College Counselling at a prestigious college counseling and test prep company in California.
Through a deep understanding of psychology and technology, Rahul wished to foster world-class learning experiences that transform students intellectually and emotionally. He thus co-founded Athena seven years ago, with his close friend and Princeton classmate Poshak Agrawal, to enable the Ivy dream of Indian youngsters. Both have significantly served on the interview committee of Princeton University and are inspiring and guiding aspirants to topmost ranked universities globally.
Athena Education is already an Indian leader in transformational life coaching for Ivy-League and equivalent admissions. The organization has helped hundreds of students transform into well-rounded and self-aware leadership talent that are potential assets for Ivy League and other leading colleges globally. Rahul takes pride in assisting students to discover and strengthen their character, global citizenry, Ikigai, perspective, and leadership qualities so that they become the best versions of themselves.
A multifaceted personality and believer of holistic living, Rahul actively pursues his interests in Chess, Theatre, Tennis, Golf, Photography, Reading, Indian Classical Music, and Yoga.
He is strengthened in his mission by his spouse Sanya Goyal, an INSEAD and UChicago alum and entrepreneur in the food industry, heading B2B and B2C brands!
Rahul also collaborates with the NGO Sitare, which assists first-generation college aspirants to enter elite institutions in India and abroad.
