Executive Q&A with Piyush Patel: Successful business owner teaches, gives backPublished: Monday, August 6, 2018 By: Hannah Pike Source: NewsOK
Piyush Patel has been a sixth-grade teacher, a college professor and the founder and CEO of a $45 million e-learning company.
Though these jobs may seem vastly different, he said the transition was fairly easy.
“If you try to teach a little kid what's two plus two, they'll say it's two twos,” Patel said. “So this idea of four is really abstract. ... Advanced computer graphics for adults is the same way.”
Patel launched Digital Tutors, an e-learning business for video game creators and special effects artists, in 2000 with $54. The company had no investors and no debt.
