"By Teachers and students, for teachers and students"


Our Mission

Every student deserves to graduate with a square cap. We support student success by improving the student teacher interaction and engagement.

Our Background

Squarecap is the brainchild of an award-winning professor at The University of Texas Austin. Our flagship product was developed with both teacher and student inputs and has gone through several iterations. Squarecap has been shown to improve academic performance of students in undergraduate classes by improving attendance and in engaging with the students effectively. It was launched in 2015 as an online application, and has gained adoption in over 20 different universities in less than 3 years.  Our company is based in Austin Texas, and we pride ourselves on being an employee-owned and customer first organization. Our team is passionate about education and helping all students succeed in their academic pursuit.

With over 25 years of teaching and research experience, I highly value education and critical thinking. I wanted to make class engaging and exciting to help every student succeed. I founded Squarecap to accomplish this mission. In addition to serving at Squarecap, I teach Biology at the University of Texas at Austin and Austin Community College as well as conduct research on alternate biofuels. When I find time, I love to read books, watch movies, cook Indian food and garden.

I value working on what really matters to you before it's too late. After working for over 17 years at various reputed high-tech firms, I wanted a breath of fresh air. At Squarecap, I use my prior experiences and my passion for education to build my dreams from the ground up. I dedicate my work to executing to our vision, gaining and supporting customers, as well as overseeing operations. Outside of work, I enjoy chasing my 3 year old in various city parks or catching some alone time in the lap pool.

As the son of university professors, I've always been taught to value education and the work of teachers. My motivation for co-founding Squarecap was to help every student get the education and support that they deserve. As Squarecap's CTO, I get to spend every day crafting an experience that empowers teachers and makes education more accessible and interactive for students. When I'm not working, I like to rock climb, read Wikipedia for hours, and play strategy games.
