Prasad Ram
Founder and CEO, Gooru


Prasad Ram (aka Pram) is the Founder and CEO of Gooru. While working at Google, Pram devised a prototype of a search engine for learning. 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 in Silicon Valley with a mission to honor the human right to education.

Prior to founding Gooru, Pram worked as the head of Google R&D in India, CTO for Yahoo! India and research scientist at Xerox Research. He has led the development of many products such as Google Maps, News and Translate as well as many technologies in search, ad targeting, and digital rights management. 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.
