About the Startup
Describe your product in 3 words.
Design, Education, Technology
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
Marie, founder of Marbotic : I’ve been working as an engineer in EdTech for 10 years. When I saw the first iPad in 2011, I immediately knew it would be a powerful learning tool, so much richer than the traditional mouse/keyboard interface. Inspired by Montessori method, I decided to create a physical wooden toy that interacts with the tablet, to help kids learn by using their brain, their hands and their soul!
What makes your product special?
The wooden parts combined with the tablet’s interaction create a beautiful contrast that people always react to. Kids don’t stay passive in front of the screen, they act and play with tangible toys.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
When we launched our campaign on Kickstarter and reached our goal in 3 days. It was so exciting and rewarding to see people supporting us!
