At SciRio, we are building the first-ever impactful ecosystem for Science Communicators in India. Our mission is very simple — support and nurture Science Communicators to become better and thus make the world better. To achieve that mission we have multiple approaches. When we first swung in full action in July 2020, we created a blogging space called The SciComm Hub to decrease the barrier of entry into SciComm for beginners. So far we have launched SciComm Lite and SciComm Foster, two impactful offerings to upskill SciCommers and help build their network. We have more in the making and we need your help to execute them.

We already have a good presence among our customer base and have heartfelt testimonials to endorse the impact of our efforts. You can read more about us on our website (About us, Events so far, Blog). If our mission excites you, write to us at

Our values and how we work

  • When in doubt, let first principles guide you. Ask yourself, will this help our mission? If the answer is yes, it will be the right road to take.
  • Innovation is our best friend and getting attached to a process, our worst enemy. Everything that we do today can be improved.
  • Don’t take your ideas too seriously. Test everything. Move on quickly.
  • Feedback moves things forward and helps you grow. Don’t get offended or take it personally. When giving feedback, focus on the ‘delta’ — the 20% that can change the 80%.
  • Dream big. At SciRio, we believe we can build a self-sustainable and profitable enterprise. Remember, nothing big ever comes easy. Work hard. Enjoy the ride.
  • Speed >> Perfection. Automate anything you can. We can improvise later.
  • Practice predicting 2nd and 3rd order effects of your decisions.
  • We are a sports team and everyone plays a crucial role. Don’t ever conceal or drop the baton.
  • Don’t confuse process with progress.
  • Prioritize ruthlessly.
