Juan Andrés Lagrange Delfino is a Systems Engineer with a degree from Metropolitan University in Caracas, Venezuela. He has taken courses in leadership, management and negotiation in universities such as Harvard Law School, ESADE and the Universidad of Carlos III, in Madrid, Spain. In 2012, he founded Akdemia, a company that produces management software for the education sector. It was one of 10 companies chosen by the Wayra startup accelerator program. In 2015, he was invited to join the Agora network of social entrepreneurs, and was also named one of the 100 most influential leaders in the education-related technology sector. In 2015, was also chosen to be part of Techstars, one of the largest accelerator programs in the tech world. The idea behind Akdemia stems from the final university year of four engineering students, who, after doing community work in an elementary school in Caracas, realized that there was a huge gap among the players that make up the education community. They learned this had a direct impact on the quality and levels of education of future generations. In 2012 the company was officially created, and that same year these entrepreneurs were picked by Telefonica’s Open Future initiative to be part of the Wayra accelerator program. Akdemia is a technological platform developed to optimize the handling of administrative, management and communications processes in one or more schools. It is one of the few companies in the education sector that offers both Web-based and mobile services geared exclusively toward strengthening the communications and academic processes with the world of education. Akdemia offers various features such as on-line administration of grades, viewing of graphic reports and activity calendars, a virtual classroom that allows file-sharing and thus a broadening of the education experience, the sending of large-scale communications, interaction between teachers and students and active collaboration and participation by representatives and professors. This allows information to be sent in real time, so as to benefit the education community. Akdemia is now present in 20 schools in six cities in Peru and Venezuela. That means 4,000 students, some 28,000 padres and 600 teachers are using the system.
