Dr. R. Shivaraman and Praveen Dwarakanath, classmates from Undergrad and have experience in successful working together. They started their entrepreneurial journey with Accendere, a edtech startup. Accendere successfully established itself as the world’s first research capability augmentation company and counts amongst its client’s prestigious names such as the IITs and IIMs in addition to several other marquee private institutions across the world. Accendere went on the pioneer the WAIN platform to connect the academic research with its users / adapters from the industry creating a platform for funding, co-development and primary research acquisition. The WAIN platform has over 72k researchers and the students from RI’s around the country have managed to publish over 5000 high impact Research Papers and file several patents for indigenous developed technology.
The “edtech” startup was incorporated with a capital of $2,000 (broke even in 2 months and 3 days -63 days from date of incorporation) and the founders successful exited at a valuation of $4million (https://www.indiainfoline.com/article/news-top-story/cl-educate-acquisition-cl-educate-completes-100-acquisition-of-accendere-117041300483_1.html) after taking the merged conglomerate CL Educate Limited through a successful IPO (BSE & NSE) in March 2017. Having built Accendere, the founders have excellent contacts in the educational industry. This allows BBB to leverage thousands of research scholars, and hundreds of research labs at a very nominal cost. This is a source of competitive advantage for us when conducting fundamental research.
