Aditya Nagrath is the founder of Elephant Learning Academy and shares a heartfelt story of how our school system and the math learning programs are not doing what they need to do.  You are hearing the story about how this project is the pinnacle of Aditya's life's work as a mathematician, software engineer & technologist, and entrepreneur.  

The lessons he shares are amazing and the numbers and statistics that we discuss about the effect of mathematics on the entire future of a child's learning may be frightening, but the fact that Aditya is doing something to change that is something you will thoroughly enjoy out of a great conversation.  Great lessons on being a founder, and doing good with technology which is something I think we all need to learn from.
