Atul Nishar Hexaware Technologies founder alongside his daughter has launched a higher education consultancy with an investment of Rs 250 crore. Azent Overseas Education, co-founded with his daughter Priyanka Nishar will focus on overseas education counselling in the beginning and gradually build up on other areas of education through acquisitions and partnerships.

“Azent is structured as a public limited company distinguished from the proprietary and partnership model that is prevalent in the advisory industry today,” said Nishar.

The company will take the online-offline model with a few technology-driven centres established across Chennai, Hyderabad and Mumbai while the offline counselling will be provided by counsellors based out of Bengaluru.

Nishar is not a novice to the educational and tech space. His first entrepreneurial venture was Aptech in 1985 which he exited in 2003. He later set up Hexaware Technologies in 1990 and exited it in 2013.

According to them, Azent is growing rapidly, with 2018 expansion plans to include centers in six cities spread across India, and their first international center in Dubai. Their local office in the United States will support their students and set them up for success in their programs.

The Mumbai-based startup aspires to become the most trusted overseas education counselors in the world, opening doors for international students to the best schools in the USA, Canada, Australia, UK and wherever else they aim to study.
