As founding Chairman of the IB Candidate school, Prometheus, Mukesh Sharma is on a mission to reimagine learning, bringing in holistic and affordable education to the country. The extended mission is to provide exposure and opportunities to the school children that have so far been an entitlement just for the affluent. Under Mukesh’s visionary leadership, the school has already crossed several milestones and completed two years.
Alongside Prometheus, Mukesh is also the founder CEO of QA InfoTech Worldwide, a software services organization focused on quality engineering since 2003. As a serial entrepreneur he has envisioned and bootstrapped several other initiatives including QAIT DevLabs, Perseverance IT Solutions, Affidable Solutions and WeBuildLearning, providing a range of products and services, with a focus on commitment and excellence. Given that one of the domains QA InfoTech specializes in, is education and learning, the transition to starting Prometheus was an innate alignment for Mukesh, leveraging the bests of both the digital acumen in the educational industry and his passion to drive the change in educational sector.
