Krishnan works on impact measurement and data for the Shiksha Program at Udhyam. He is passionate about education and entrepreneurship, and finds Udhyam to be a great intersection of the two. His recent personal experiments revolve around attempting to navigate life as a series of never-ending conscious actions and surrenders (to the outcome). Krishnan connects deeply with the 'real-life experiential learning' philosophy of Udhyam, as he attributes most of his own learnings to real experiences rather than pure academics.
