Vivek founded aPrintis to empower journalism and engagement within schools and other small communities. He has been inspired by seeing first hand how students at budget-strapped schools with access to minimal design resources are still able to mobilize to create pro-quality publications that are winners in their communities.
He believes that the printed magazine format gives schools and communities a voice and entity that powerfully supplements their online presence and makes them stand out. He is particularly passionate about increasing awareness of the multidimensional skills of research and journalism, design and creativity, entrepreneurship and leadership, and basic long form reading and writing skills that the experience of creating a magazine inculcates in students at schools ranging from elementary to high schools to colleges.
Some of Vivek’s other passions are data science and technology - he has held senior positions in technology and business at Apple, Bain & Company and AdMaxim.
Vivek holds a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from University of California at Berkeley, MBA from University of Chicago and B.Tech from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur
