Children's interest in mathematics increased
Algebra and geometry are the two heirs of mathematics and they are famous for creating fear among innocent children. Their horror is so much that even children are afraid of it even in their parents. There was a mother whose favorite subject has been mathematics. But seeing the phobia growing in his daughter, he felt bad. That is why they found an option that is making math easy and fun with the help of technology. We are talking about Avneet Makkar of Bengaluru. His startup CarveNiche Technologies is raising interest in children towards mathematics.

In this, the child's Midas Test is taken first. This AI Best Test shows where the child is stuck in the learning process. This determines the direction of how the child should be taught further.
Useful for children from KG to class 10th
After finding the learning gap from this test, a personalized AI path is generated according to the child's needs. Those topics are strengthened by focusing on the platform of beGalileo where the children are struggling. The biggest feature of this product is that children from KG (10th) to 10th class can start using it on any stage. Once the child is in fourth grade or seventh class, after reading on beGalileo, the fear of mathematics runs away and then it becomes the most favorite subject.
Earning opportunity through franchise
CarveNiche Technologies is not retailing products on B2B to maintain the quality of personalized learning. Hence beGalileo only retails at B2C. The company has created beGalileo centers by providing teacher training. Most of these centers made by the franchise model are run by a math teacher. After examining the capacity of teachers, these centers can be started by giving training. These home based centers can be started at minimal cost. The company retails the product through the subscription box for such customers for whom it is not possible to go to the center.
