CEO and Founder
Zaver, originally from Auckland, founded ALOKI in October 2016 with a vision to break down the barriers to education. Zaver's mission in creating ALOKI is to enable students and people anywhere who wish to learn to have access to the right people and resources regardless of social factors. Zaver has worked as a Civil Engineer across NZ, AU, UK, undertaken aid work in Samoa, previously ran a business in fitness and has a strong background in sales across enterprise technology and real estate. Zaver believes the key to his success and being able to adapt in these varied industries was largely due to having access to mentors and education through peer to peer learning. It is this peer to peer learning experience he wishes to foster on the ALOKI platform.
Roshni a native of Sydney's Northern Beaches and Zaver's partner was integral to the idea of developing ALOKI. In 2014 the idea was born out of a conversation between Zaver and Roshni about Roshni's part time job as a Tutor when she was at University. Roshni provides legal advice to ALOKI on matters such as Trademarking, Patents and other legal matters.
Fitha, originally from Kerala, has been an integral part of the ALOKI team since our humble beginnings in the H2 Accelerator. She has worked for Nokia Networks as a Research and Development Engineer and has broad and extensive experience in many technology stacks. She is passionate about startups and impacting positively on education and as such throws herself into all areas of the business. She is pursuing her Masters in Engineering Science with a Telecommunication major from the University of New South Wales and completing her degree in 2018. She is currently working on Version Two of the ALOKI app in a cross-platform technology which will cater for all non-iPhone users as well, watch this space!
Guillaume joined our team earlier this year, and looks after of all students/tutors bookings. Guillaume has worked in sales for the last 8 years between France and Australia. He takes pride and passion in establishing and developing long-term relationships with customers, and providing them with the best service and ensuring they have the best experience. Guillaume joined ALOKI because he strongly believes that everyone needs and/or deserves access to a mentor/tutor/coach no matter the individual's background or ressources. Learning should be easy accessible, affordable...and fun! On the weekend, you'll find him surfing, playing soccer or eating a cheeky croissant by the beach - if you can't find him, just look for the French accent.
