The Athena Story

Athena was founded seven years ago by two Princeton graduates, Poshak Agrawal and Rahul Subramaniam. Both are passionate about India’s growth story and aspire to transform its educational landscape.

Athena is a culmination of this dream: helping students do better and be better through holistic education.

Poshak Agrawal
Rahul Subramaniam

Our Founders

Poshak graduated from DPS RK Puram, where he graduated in the top 1% of his class. He received a 100% scholarship from Stanford and Princeton.

Rahul went to high school in Fremont, California. He received perfect SAT scores and got into every Ivy League to which he applied, finally choosing Princeton over Harvard.
