Caribu is an award-winning education platform that helps parents, extended family, and mentors to read and draw with children when they’re not in the same location. We are "FaceTime meets Kindle", for kids. An in-app bookstore has hundreds of books in six languages, and educational workbooks from leading children’s publishers focused on ages 0-7. The result is an engaging experience in a carefully designed, curated, and secure platform where future growth markets will include language-learning and tutoring. Reading with toddlers for at least 20 minutes a day is crucial to building a strong literacy foundation. With Caribu, any trusted adult can ensure that children are receiving the daily dose of their literacy diet no matter how far apart they are. Caribu was named one of the 'Top Ten EdTech companies to watch' in Forbes and is free for currently serving military families. Use the promo code TECHSTARS to try Caribu for free for one month.
