The new edtech firm 'Azent Overseas Education' offers online and offline counselling for overseas education.
Atul Nishar, Founder of Hexaware Technologies, has started an education technology company, Azent Overseas Education, along with his daughter Priyanka.
The new edtech company offers online and offline counselling for overseas education. It seeks to provide guidance to students in selecting the right course and university in the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Ireland and Singapore.
This is Nishar’s third entrepreneurial venture after founding a computer education institute, Aptech Ltd, in 1986 and then Hexaware in 1990.
Atul Nishar, Chairman of Azent Overseas Education, said, “Azent is a combination of both education and technology. The idea is to look at more areas within the education field and make it into a tech-driven education company. There is a need for an organized player in the overseas counselling market and, therefore, ours is a public limited company with long-term goals, and much higher compliance and governance standards compared to other firms in this space.”
“There is also a social objective that we want to serve with this company as the most important thing for any family in India is their child’s education. That is why it is all the more critical to have the right, impartial and ethical guidance to help students build their career,” he added.
Priyanka Nishar, Founder, Azent Overseas Education, stated, “Our students can access over 1200 universities across the world. We match students to the best possible universities where they will excel in their programs. Our comprehensive list of scholarships will guide students and further their possibilities.”
