Our Story
Established in 2017 by Rajeev and Sumit, our startup originated from the common struggle of finding high-quality neighborhood tutors for their own children. Since then, it has grown into a community of like-minded individuals, forming a cohesive team and extending to include customers and stakeholders, all sharing a collective commitment to making it a personal mission.
The narrative took an interesting turn in 2021 with the emergence of ‘Palo.’ Fueled by the aftermath of the global pandemic and the increasing concern for children’s mental health, we boldly ventured into the realm of Social Emotional Learning.
Today, our operations span three key verticals:
Under Palo, we offer a comprehensive suite of solutions, including a zero-prep student curriculum, a gamified web app, and teacher and counselor dashboards designed for effective school SEL management.
Talentnook Afterschool Programs and Camps
Through Talentnook Afterschool programs and camps, we collaborate with schools to deliver specialized courses and homework support to students.
Our journey is a continual evolution, shaped by the invaluable feedback and insights we receive from our users and customers. Each day, we strive to adapt and innovate, seeking solutions for their ever-emerging challenges and needs.
Our Approach
At the heart of our strategy is the fusion of data science and technology with a foundation of knowledge and empathy, crafting products that span the entire spectrum of a child’s learning journey—from fostering social-emotional well-being to excelling in academics and extracurriculars.
Our innovation extends beyond catering solely to children; we empower teachers, counselors, and schools with a suite of intelligent products designed to enhance their working through technology.
Central to our approach is inclusivity, wherein we view schools, counselors, teachers, parents, and ourselves as an interconnected force. This collaborative approach addresses challenges at both macro and individual levels, fostering holistic child development.
We work with schools and districts in over 12 states
