This week’s guest post is by Parul Gupta, Co founder of Springboard. I first met Parul in 2018 as a co-panelist in an edtech conference in India, while I was managing Udacity’s India business and Parul was busy scaling up Springboard globally. It was around the time that she was looking to build her leadership team for India. Her thoughtfulness around intentional hiring came out within the first few minutes of our interaction. Fast forward to 2022, I have really come to admire Parul’s intellectual curiosity in whatever she is doing- from starting a new office to starting a new business line, from thinking what matters to students to thinking what matters to her in her next gig.
