Nitin Pandey, Founder & CEO

Nitin Pandey

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.
