Hi, my name is Kavitta, co-founder and CEO at Nectir. My other important roles include friend, artist, and daughter. My mom always told me I should write a book, so this is my millennial version of it. If you’re an educator, I hope this helps you see why I care so deeply about improving education. If you’re a friend, I hope you get the chance to read about my appreciation for you. If you’re just a passerby, I hope you learn something new and meaningful.
Life has been busy lately, but in the best way possible. The biggest lesson I’ve learned so far is that the most important thing we can do in this lifetime is learn. I’ve grown up in an era of complete technological transformation and had a front seat ride in watching the world reinvent itself at light speed. Being raised in an entrepreneurial household taught me that changing the world isn’t as easy as it looks, but with resiliency and luck it’s possible.
I’m currently working on Nectir, a communication platform for education that encourages collaborative learning through connecting students in the same classes. After seeing communication between students, TA’s, and Professors being an issue on my campus, the idea of Nectir was born to solve it. I’m so excited to build this idea from the ground up with a team of visionaries and challenge myself with something that has no “instruction manual”. I believe that higher education has a long way to go before it’s perfect, but I want to be a part of the solution rather than just complain about the problem.
