Arghya Banerjee

Founder, The Levelfield School

Arghya, the founder of Levelfield, is an IIT-IIM alumnus. He is the former Co-Head of Irevna (a leading equity research outsourcing house, a Standard and Poors company). Arghya was one of the early founding members of Irevna, and helped to ramp up the firm to 500 people. A strong believer in the transformative power of high-quality school education, he traded in his corporate career for a more significant, long-lasting impact. Given his experience, Arghya has a deep understanding of the skills necessary to succeed in the world we are in today - and to better anticipate the future. Always passionate about developing talent, his ideas around education crystallized as he started evaluating schools for his daughter. The leading schools in the large cities, while big on infrastructure, seemed lacking in thought and philosophy. So he set out to create his own - a school where children would learn to think, rather than to memorize facts. A school where learning will be fun as well as effective. A school which will prepare the smaller town children for a modernized world and global career. Due to Levelfield’s outstanding success, Arghya has been invited as a speaker in various education conferences - most notably in ‘School of Tomorrow’ conference and National Independent School’s Alliance (NISA) conference. His views on new-age teaching methodologies are frequently sought by media and other school leaders.
