Kartik Sarda

Director and Chief Executive Officer

It has been quite a journey for Mr. Sarda so far – one that he hopes would inspire many youngsters like him to take action and start inventing.

Coming from a humble background, with immense support from his family and his own determination, he went to the US for higher studies at the age of 17. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Physics with minors in Math and Astronomy from Iowa State University. Later, he joined Streamline Tutors – an ed-tech and tutoring company based in Baltimore – to gain startup experience in education industry, where he continues to contribute as an Education Consultant, Market Researcher, Business Developer, and Webmaster.

In December 2019, Mr. Sarda started his entrepreneurial journey as he came up with the idea of Saathi Global Education Network. After interacting with multiple school officials in India and US, he formed a team to start developing this online platform.

A savvy writer, he published his first novel The Unconventional Winner: Spectre’s Rise in August 2018 at the age of 20. He has also written multiple short stories, articles and poems.
