TOI surfaces parents’ challenges from HOTSPOT findings
This article in Times of India on 11th August surfaces some of the challenges faced by parents today and the need for support. It's not easy to be a parent; it takes a lot. We feel that the least one can do is not judge a parent, and we feel really good about parentune's network, as it has kept judgement at bay, and more people and entities have come forward to support parents without judging.
We started parentune in 2012 with a belief that timely and validated advice from like minded parents & experts shall empower each parent to do what is right for their child. This journey emanated from our understanding & appreciation for the significant role played by each parent in a child's development. Today, parentune has become a 24x7 parent's partner supporting parents to do more for their child in real time.

About the Cofounders
The co-founders Nitin Pandey and Venugopal Pottu strive each day to make this proparent community a support system for each parent out there!
Venugopal Pottu, Co-founder & CTO
Venugopal has worked in startups as a Cofounder for 12 years. Starting with his first venture when he was still on IIT KGP campus, till now he has never been extensively using his tech talent to build tech smart businesses. Venu’s first startup was a networking solution, which was deployed with several colleges. He founded and scaled up Metanest – a web and app services firm, which worked with startups as well as some large corporations like Cissco, Cambridge & Tatas. He founded Potknox, a talent screening SAAS solution. He has also worked across domains & led Technology teams in his previous leadership roles. He was chosen a TECHTOR by BusinessWorld in 2018.
Nitin Pandey, Co-founder & CEO
Nitin had a prior experience of 12 yrs in scaling up Consumer focused brands & businesses. He was rated an Outstanding Achiever by Apollo Tyres. Nitin & his team scaled an Early Childhood Development & Education Business to being the most recognized chain of economy preschools & empowered the firm’s journey to an IPO in 3 years. He learnt in his education stints about parents’s challenges. He understood that parents miss a real-time support that can help them raise their child. He realised that a parent’s role in a child’s development is perhaps as or more important than a preschool or school. This prompted him to do a research with more than 2000 parents & compelled him to start up parentune. Nitin was recognized as a Braveheart by BD, 40Under40 Leader by BusinessWorld in 2018 and as an Illustrious Entrepreneur Alumnus by IMI Delhi in 2019.
