Mr. Avinash Fofalia

Achiever's Success Story

“Besides driving his vision of creating “Better Schools” to lead students & teachers towards a higher happiness index, he is also a meditation & lifestyle trainer.”

Avinash Fofalia is a B.Tech & MBA graduate who hails from a family of businessmen. A call of the heart led him to leave a thriving corporate career and jump into the unknown waters, consumed with one idea, “Education field mei Kuch Karna hai.” Thus began his Ed journey in 2010, starting with critical roles in Manipal School Services & Pearson K-12 Education.

His desire to empower schools, teachers, and students using technology as a tool, led him to conceive 28Nine Eduventures Pvt Ltd., which functions on the mantra of ‘Think Big, Move Fast.’ Under the brand name of ‘Schoolmojo,’ the company focuses on connecting Schools & Families to facilitate blended learning. Schoolmojo’s offerings of Virtual Schooling has come in as a shot in the arm for many schools struggling to find their feet in the digital world.

“I realized that numerous Edtech platforms are being built to help students with videos & content taught by unknown teachers. School going kids aged 5-15yrs naturally like to learn from their own teachers with whom they have an emotional connect. This fundamental realization made me create a private & secure solution for K-12 schools. This has so far been a neglected space”, shares Avinash on the genesis of Schoolmojo.

Most school teachers are not tech-savvy and need hand-holding. The solution has been crafted thoughtfully with empathy for teachers & learners, reflected in its many nuances. The Schoolmojo solution advocates a ‘Flipped Classroom’ model. The platform is filled with many out of the box ideas to address everyday hiccups like losing precious ‘Live-Class time’ on attendance/ settling time/ Zoom-bombing/ bad connectivity/ drifting student attention to other apps etc. One of its key offerings is to provide gold standard animated videos in Math & Science at less than 10% of the market price. Schoolmojo is striving to catapult a silent revolution within Schools and Families to enhance academic standards over time.
