Trivandrum: Former IPS officer Rajan Singh, who quit the services to study and work in the US, is back in town. This time, in the garb of an entrepreneur. Singh is launching an innovative online education startup, named ConceptOwl, to groom students for all-India competitive examinations.


After an MBA at Wharton and a consultancy career with McKinsey, Singh has returned to the capital city to introduce this technology platform. “We wanted to overcome the lacunae in quality coaching for students in Tier-2/Tier-3 cities through this platform,” said Singh.

The learning system aims to harnesses technology to make learning easier and faster, and is focused on individual abilities, in the traditional classroom set-up. 


The startup hopes to introduce a new chapter in education and building a learning system that not only teaches students “to crack entrance exams in a mechanical manner, but also aims to make lifelong learners, who will be researchers, scientists and leaders making worthwhile contributions to society,” he points out. 

After obtaining his BTech degree IIT from Kanpur Singh, joined the Indian Police Service. Within six months the 1997 batch IPS office was appointed as the police commissioner in Trivandrum, the youngest officer to hold the post. He left the services in 2005 to pursue a business degree at Wharton, where, as a top student, he was awarded the Palmer scholarship.
