ABOUT WALNUT

Why walnut as a name? We’ll let one of our children answer that in the form of a question!
Walnut Knowledge Solutions is a Bangalore-based education company that aims to foster curiosity and inquisitiveness through fun and engaging quiz questions. Quizzers at heart, Walnut was conceptualized by Sachin and Raghav, two lawyers-turned entrepreneurs in 2011.
Formally in existence since 2014, Walnut now conducts a variety of quiz-based events for schools, colleges, corporates and non-profit organizations. Listed as one of the 50 EdStartups that will redefine the education system in India, we use contextual media and storytelling as a means of engaging audiences over different platforms.
Our signature offering is QShala ( formerly known as QuizShala) , a quizzing oriented developmental workshop for school students where we use questions, stories and activities to make children more aware and participative. Apart from QShala, we have also conceptualized knowledge properties for various clients, conducted more than 100+ professional quizzes, and aided clients in customized content development.

THE  (RETIRED) WALNUT MOBILE!

While looking for a vehicle to transport us around, we decided that we wanted something that could maneuver nimbly around Bangalore traffic, be easily recognizable, and reflect our personalities accurately.
What better than a bright orange Tata Nano, we thought?
If you’ve ever been overtaken by a bright orange Nano blasting some classic rock, then you’ve seen the Walnut Mobile. And yes, we like the color.
