Episode details

Does your child struggle with instructional learning? This week in LongShorts, we speak with Sonia Notani, the co-founder of BrainGymJr - a technology startup that aims to teach children how to think and apply their school-based knowledge from a young age. Focused specifically on Mathematics, English and real-world skills, BrainGymJr is gamifying learning by presenting simple concepts (e.g. ratios) within a problem-solving framework (e.g. ratios of a pizza) - one game at a time!

Choosing not to identify strictly as an edtech company, Sonia talks about the complex value chains underlying education, the various stakeholders at play and the critical inputs needed to create a product such as hers.
