Brian O’Dwyer

Co-founder & Commercial CEO

By 38, I had three dream jobs in consulting, banking and as an airline CFO. I was CFO of Skywest until the sale to Virgin Australia, an investment banker at Credit Suisse in New York, Chicago and Singapore and a management consultant with A.T. Kearney. When I went from airline CFO to teaching airline management, I realized that Learning 1.0 lectures and Learning 2.0 e-learning do not prepare students for the workforce.

During lunch about a Duke-UNC basketball game, I discovered the team-based learning (TBL) methodology used at Duke-NUS Medical School and was convinced of the impact it could have on engagement, outcomes and 21st-century skills. This led to my role as an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Duke-NUS and the founding of CognaLearn, a company that helps teachers replace lectures with Team-Based Learning cloud-based software, InteDashboard.

Mark Png

Chief Technology Officer

I am a passionate coder with 27 years of experience. In the last 11 years, I have founded several technology start-ups, where I have developed the products and scaled the teams. I am passionate about EdTech, HR-tech and AI-assisted tools to solve the existing industry problems.

The world that I envisage is full of opportunities where technologies bring us all together to solve the existing challenges. InteDashboard is already at that stage where it is helping educators create a collaborative learning environment and it gives me immense satisfaction in knowing that together we are creating a measurable impact.
