Rohan Mahimker and Alex Peters started SMARTeacher as a fourth year project at the University of Waterloo with a bold vision - to revolutionize the way kids learn in software by responding to their emotions. Their first product, Prodigy, is a Pokemon-style video game where children answer math questions to advance their very own wizard avatar. They experienced significant growth after filming on Dragons' Den, growing their team to 12 people and acquiring a few thousand users. Rohan Mahimker shares some entrepreneurial insights they have picked up along the way.
