studylane® Pty Ltd was formed through the amalgamation of the activities of its two founders - Bipul Kafley and Elaine Starkey. Both were active in complementary parts of the international education industry in Australia. They have seen firsthand the inefficiencies and lack of transparency associated with the end to end processes from the time an international student selects Australia as an option for overseas study through to their final enrolment and commencement.

Bipul Kafley came to Australia as an international student and experienced firsthand the misinformation and inefficiencies of the process. His is not an isolated experience as many students either directly or via their education agents, have limited and often-incorrect information provided to them. Bipul went about building the proto-type to provide a solution to this situation. That was the original studylane® website, which has been significantly enhanced and upgraded to take to the global market.

Elaine Starkey has been the content creator and publisher of the Austrade supported "Australian International Education and Training Guide" - distributed internationally to showcase Australia's education sector and related service providers.

Together, Elaine and Bipul have the platform in terms of process knowledge, systems and systems vision and industry relationships and content to deliver a unique and compelling global solution.
