In this week’s interview, we have the pleasure of introducing you to Stuti Sharma, Co-founder of Curiosity Kids.
Curiosity Kids was started by parents of two curious kids. Their children would regularly ask questions such as “ why do planes fly and we cannot? “Why can we push a chair but not an elephant?” And many more!
They couldn’t find any classes that would provide a platform for young kids to explore these questions in a simple yet interesting manner, hence Stuti started to design simple experiments for them. They were a big hit and soon friends and schoolmates joined in!
In 2016, Stuti quit her job and together with her Co-Founder, Anuj, started Curiosity Kids as they felt a need for such hands-on, engaging, and educational science experiment classes to help children connect with science around them. The founders believe that for young minds to comprehend and enjoy science at higher classes a very positive and enjoyable experience needs to be created for the subject at a young age!
Curiosity Kids has offices in Hong Kong, Singapore & India

Let’s start with the timeless 60 seconds ‘elevator pitch’, what’s yours?
All children were born curious. Curiosity is the foundation of all discovery and human progress. Curiosity Kids focuses on fostering the natural curiosity in children by offering practical science experiment classes, camps, workshops, and birthday parties for children aged 3 to 9 years old.
Children learn what role science plays in their daily lives through experiments that they do themselves. Children are encouraged to be curious and ask questions, be creative in answering those questions, have the confidence to explore, learn and experiment, and be able to effectively communicate with their peers and educators.
This early exposure to science helps these young minds to comprehend and enjoy science as a subject in higher classes.
At one point or another, it is inevitable that challenges will pop up in business. What’s your approach to overcoming challenges?
Every business had its challenges. I always try to break down every problem into small parts and just think logically about what can I do to resolve it. I try not to complicate problems by getting inundated by them. When a big problem is broken into small parts it feels manageable and every small problem solved gives me the motivation and confidence to solve for the challenge at hand.
Sales and marketing are two very important, but different, functions within a business. What is your number one sales tip?
Word of mouth is the best marketing strategy!
What is your favourite business tool or system?
It is important to celebrate your achievements, particularly during the difficult times. How do you celebrate your achievements?
We celebrate every achievement whether big or small by acknowledging our team’s efforts making sure every team member feels part of the achievement.
Being in business is like an education in itself, what are the three most important lessons you’ve learned in your business?
Lesson 1: Dream big but don’t be afraid to start small.
Lesson 2: Always put yourself in your customer’s shoes.
Lesson 3: Invest in a good and trustworthy team.
