Excerpts from an interview with Sonali Dasgupta, founder of STEMonsters – a learning space for children to grasp the concepts of science and technology through practical knowledge.
When did you start ‘STEMonsters’ and what was the intention?
My mission was to create a fun STEM learning space for children where they explore and learn science and technology concepts by tinkering, experimenting and discovering. As a scientist, I know that the gap between textbook learning and real-world innovations needs to be bridged. That’s very important if we want children to grow up to be the thought-leaders of tomorrow’s technology and innovation-driven world.
What was the biggest challenge you faced in starting the company?
Coming from a pure research background, scaling and marketing were my biggest challenges.
What is the biggest mistake you made while starting your company in the initial few years?
I was not able to delegate and hire for the tasks that did not need my expertise.
