Brainvisa – Profile
HQ: Pune, India
Management: Supam Maheshwari is Founder and CEO. He is an engineer as are his two co-founders. None boast of terribly impressive backgrounds.
Investors: In June 2005, WestBridge Capital Partners invested $5.5M in a series A round of investing.
Business Model: Brainvisa sells eLearning services to companies that want custom-made, company, specific modules at an affordable price. The company has a team over over 400 graphic artists, writers, animators and programmers, mostly in India, that use Flash, Authorware and other shrinkwrapped presentation software.
Competitors: Digital Think, SkillSoft
Dirt: Anyone who has taken good and bad corporate education courses knows that eye-candy presentations make all the difference. The trouble is that these can be budget-busters. Brainvisa knows that Indians can provide such eye-candy just as well as some cool kid on the lower east side, at a fraction of the cost.
