After Helping His Daughter Improve Her Typing Skills, TICKEN Founder Martin Beijer Helped 120,000+ Children Do the Same
NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / June 11, 2021 / A serial entrepreneur from the Netherlands Martin Beijer launched his business as a quite simple but effective eLearning course to teach children fast typing.
The first business idea came up when Martin Beijer bought an expensive typing course for his daughter and realized the exercises were boring and ineffective.
Martin saw a great startup opportunity and developed his own game-based approach. It was supported by the fact that 68% of students consider a gamified course more motivating and thus effective than a traditional one.
The successful launch of TICKEN confirmed Martin's hypothesis that game-based products have great business potential. Recently, the number of customers exceeded 120,000 users across Europe, including Belgium, France, UK and Germany.
So Martin decided to scale up and released several similar projects in related segments:
- eLearning platform for selling driving theory online courses called TET
- math and language courses for kids called EXTRAAS
From the beginning and until now, eLearning development company Belitsoft has been a reliable technology partner of Martin Beijer. As a result, all his three platforms (TICKEN, TET and EXTRAAS) were implemented in collaboration with Belitsoft.
