Prasad Ram (aka Pram) is the Founder, CEO and Chairman of Gooru. While working at Google, Pram
devised a prototype to address his problem of finding age and topic appropriate educational
resources on the web. What began as a "20% effort" evolved into a year-long pilot in India that
included 1,000 students across 25 classrooms. Pram subsequently left Google to pursue Gooru as a
non-profit education technology start-up that would develop Gooru, a personalized learning solution.
Pram has previously worked at Xerox Research, Dynamx Technology (co-founder), Yahoo! and Google.
Pram has a Ph.D. and M.S. in Computer Science from UCLA, and he obtained his B.Tech. in Computer
Science from IIT-Bombay.
He joined the CCST Council in 2014.
