    Advait Shinde has accomplished a lot during his time in the tech world and seems to be a problem-oriented developer who wants to make the classroom experience better for both students and educators. I do not work in a traditional classroom, so have not encountered the challenges Advait is approaching through his ventures (I do get a slight Big Brother vibe), but I do find them to be a passionate, inspiring entrepreneur that is bound to continue making contributions to the EdTech space.
