Mumbai-based ARKidzoo makes AR based interactive products for children that promises hours of fun and learning

Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg... the world knows a handful of celebrity entrepreneurs who dropped out of college and built a business empire. But when Dharmesh Gohil dropped out of his engineering college in 2005, it was to do stock market trading and support his family which was till then run by his father, a daily wage labourer. Thirteen years down the line, Gohil today is an entrepreneur hoping to make it big like the others.

Based out of Mumbai, he - along with Jigar Pathak and Kajal Gohil - runs ARKidzoo, a brand that offers interactive learning products for students with the help of augmented reality. Launched in January 2018, ARKidzoo has so far introduced two products - Dropiz alphabets (AR based alphabets flashcard) and Dropiz 3 in 1 (AR based based flashcards for colours, shapes and numbers). Gohil thanks his co-founder Pathak for introducing him to the technology.

After a few years of trading, he enrolled for a brief animation courses
