About RyeCatcher Education


RyeCatcher Education was founded by Arthi Krishnaswami in 2014 to realize prototypes she developed in 2012 for the U.S. federal government’s MyData initiative. Since then, RyeCatcher software has served more than 23,000 students.

Arthi was inspired by her brother’s experience as a special education student to create a system that would support students and families with special needs.  Since then, RyeCatcher software has become a platform that schools can use to create a community of support for every student.

RyeCatcher Education is a public benefit corporation.  The company is privately-held with no equity investors or shareholders. The company is headquartered in New York City. Staff and partners are distributed across the United States

Ryecatcher was an easy to use tool that allowed me to track student behavior and attendance to group therapy...I loved that the notes were in real time and gave me access to students’ progress and parental/teacher communication. Ryecatcher was an excellent compliment to my individual counseling sessions and provided a framework for the interventions I used with my students each week.
