Inventure Academy is promoted by a dedicated team of professionals who are committed to raising the benchmark for education in India. The key people are Chairman and Co-Founder Irfan Razack , and Managing Trustee and CEO, Nooraine Fazal .
Mr. Razack is the CEO of the Prestige Group, a reputed property development company in South India. He was the Honorary Secretary of the Al – Ameen Educational Society and has an active philanthropic interest in about fifty graduate and postgraduate institutions.
Ms Fazal has a Master of Science degree in Management from Boston University and worked with IBM and Reuters for a period of 10 years in a front-line and managerial capacity.
Post a period of introspection about the future, Nooraine returned to India in 2003 (after twelve years across the UK, USA, Middle East, Australia and the Greater China region) in order to be a ‘citizen with a say’ in the way the country is developing.
The result is an educational institution that incorporates much of what Nooraine believes education must be about, and promises robust, lifelong development of the individual.
