What inspired you to launch your business idea?
When my son was born I realised that I have no instructions what to do with him. I started to read books, chat on blogs, hired educator for me to develop my son. All these researches took ton of time. But I wanted to spend time with my son, than just reading.
Actually it pushed me to start doing something easy to use for modern busy parents, tailored just for their needs and on mobile devices. It grows to KidMastermind.
What problem does your business or organization solve?
Nowadays active busy parents have luck of possibility to spend perceived time with their little children. But they want to spend quality time together, to tighten family bonds and to achieve high results. What they get mostly from the market – parenting books as source of information (books are not personalised and request lots of time for search); TV (child mostly waist time alone) and educational apps for tablet (not obvious what skills does it develop).
We propose solution that saves their time, help them spend quality time with children together and achieve high educational results for children.
