BENGALURU: An apt business idea is when innovation is added to a million-dollar plan. Today’s startups are all driven by innovation and certain educational startups in Bangalore are a result of such innovations. Flintobox and Experifun are the two-year old startups which targeted schools in and around the city as their marketplace.

ET reports on these two startups that began ideating and designing products or gadgets which comply to the needs of teachers and students. Experifun caters to the needs of Class 6th to 10th students in understanding science and computer science subjects. Flintobox on the other hand assists teachers with their gadgets to help students of age-group 3-7 years in developing analytical abilities with their gadgets.

Rakesh Kumar, co-founder of Experifun says, "According to our understanding, more than 95 percent of schools lack contemporary tools in classrooms for effective learning irrespective of location. We want to bring curriculum based exploratory learning and innovation to classrooms at affordable price. Hence, we are a science-gadget company not the usual science-kit provider."

The efforts put in by Experifun is rather inspiring than innovative as their products suit all kinds of schools, even those which lack power supply and poor infrastructure. Their products are designed in such a way that they can be easily used by any average teacher in a village. Durability is another added advantage of Experifun’s products.

The founders of these startups say that demand for quality education, more double income families and growing aspirations facilitate the growth of such startups. Experifun serves around 20 schools in Koramangala and HSR Layout, and 100 schools across different states.

Flintobox even saves the trouble for working parents by giving curious puzzles to children helping improve their thinking abilities. Arun Prasad Durairaj, cofounder of Flintobox says, "Unlike other toy companies we are completely focusing on development of kids in age-group of 3-7 years. We provide a lot of convenience for parents, since they can leave the job of curating best for their kids with us.”

Flintobox now has over 6000 customers across 300+ cities and has witnessed a 20 fold growth, according the company.
