We are building a global community of the world's most curious, driven, and ambitious people that want to make an impact. We've completely redesigned what education and human development looks like because we believe that our current systems are not maximizing human potential. We want to accelerate people to solve problems through working with leading organizations, starting their own companies, or through research and invention. We are building an investment fund for startups founded by TKS Alumni, while also creating relationships with top-tier organizations to help them recruit talent to solve hard problems. Ultimately, we want to create a Knowledge Society of people who are changing the world for the better.
Navid Nathoo was the founder and CEO of Airpost, which was acquired by Box (NYSE: BOX) in early 2015.

Post-acquisition, Navid led product for multiple groups at Box, which included overseeing technologies in machine learning, big data, and advanced security.
Nadeem Nathoo was a consultant at McKinsey & Company, a global top-tier management consulting firm, where he advised Fortune 500 CEOs on their most salient and challenging issues. His experiences range from Banking, Mining, Aerospace, Telecommunication, and Advanced Industries, to name a few. Nadeem has successfully led turn-arounds and growth strategies that have had global implications including facilitating a $500 million merger transition and a $2 billion strategic spin-off.
"Nadeem and I started TKS because we wanted to build what we wish we had growing up. I wasn't exposed to the latest trends in technology and science, and I didn’t have mentors guiding me to help me understand what the real world was like. Most importantly, I wasn't surrounding myself with like-minded people. When designing the curriculum for TKS, we brought in successful CEOs, executives, and thought leaders from across the world to provide their insights into what skills and mindsets need to be trained early. As a result, TKS has developed a world-class experience designed for young people who want to create the future and influence change."
