About Kalam

In India, more than 5 million students set their sights on top careers in Engineering, Medicine, and Civil Services each year. However, they face significant hurdles in finding great mentors and teachers. We are building Kalam, a revolutionary AI-backed education initiative, which comes to the rescue, empowering students with access to personalized mentorship in a discipline-inducing learning ecosystem.

Kalam prepares study plans and sets daily targets based on a student's progress, keeping track of common mistakes, and time spent on specific concepts. This innovative approach is already working wonders, and the aim is to scale this to reach 5 million students in India, starting with the Indian Civil Services Examination (UPSC).

Current Edtech solutions primarily involve one-way content delivery, where thousands of students merely consume the content without engaging in effective discussions with the teacher. This leads to a loss of curiosity and, eventually, to poor learning outcomes.

Furthermore, an excess of content leads to a multitude of choices, often resulting in confusion and chaotic, unplanned preparation.Kalam steps in to solve these issues with simplicity and focus. Vimal has championed this process through his education initiatives over the past decade.

Now, leveraging the latest AI technology, Kalam is fully equipped to scale founder’s counter-intuitive insights and learnings to assist millions of students in India, starting with the UPSC exam.
