Profile

Vikas Pota, Founder and CEO of T4 Education, was this month named the 2022 Global Impact Award honoree for Europe by the YPO – the 30,000 strong global leadership community of extraordinary chief executives – for his phenomenal impact on education and teachers during the pandemic.

Vikas founded startup T4 Education at the height of the pandemic in 2020 to respond to the crisis suddenly faced by teachers all around the world to keep students learning and close education gaps when schools were shut.

T4 Education has grown from there and is building the world’s largest community of teachers and schools – over 200,000 from over 100 countries to date – and its digital media platform provides opportunities for educators to network, collaborate, share good practices, and support each other’s efforts to improve learning in the wake of COVID.
