CreatorBox delivers fun projects families build together that inspire kids to learn about STEM. They’re build-it-yourself educational toys for kids ages 6-12 that inspire young creators.
“The Kaplan EdTech Accelerator’s network has been a tremendous help,’ said CEO David Ronick. “Through that network, we met and got advice from CEOs of companies that have already grappled with many of the challenges we were about to face. We’re following a subscription e-commerce model, selling monthly boxes with educational projects for children. We got in-depth insights, caveats, and recommendations that saved us time and money, from founders of related companies including Plated, MakersKit, Babbaco and others. Those founders were incredibly generous with their time, open to sharing the details of their experiences, and eager to help fellow founders. We also had a very positive impact from the Kaplan network, largely via mentors who provided support, advice and inspiration on a weekly basis.”
So, why NYC?
“We needed specialized product design talent, and were able to recruit three graduates of NYU’s Tisch School ITP program on short notice.
Now, go forth and tinker. And learn something, while you’re at it!
