Describe your Unreasonable Venture in 100 words or less.
After starting MILLEE, a venture enabling Indian children to learn English using mobile phone games, I realized more needed to be done to promote the adoption of technology to bridge the education gap in developing countries. I have set out to examine why educational technology ventures, like One Laptop Per Child, have largely failed by conducting an 8-month research project in India, Nepal, Bangladesh, and sub-Saharan Africa.
