Vidya Sundaram

Co-founder & CEO
Family Engagement Lab

I lead Family Engagement Lab, a nonprofit organization that provides a simple way to improve student outcomes in low-income and linguistically diverse communities through family engagement. Through our award-winning and evidence-based program, FASTalk, we help teachers meaningfully engage families through curriculum aligned, at-home activities that drive students’ social, emotional, and academic success. My work lies at the intersection of technology, business, and social impact. I have applied my experience as a software engineer and venture capitalist to develop scalable digital solutions to engage millions of parents and students.
