Game to Learn and Grow


High Concept Statement

We can never learn enough. This app will make learning into a scoring game that can be played with friends and family. The learning dashboard will combine text, video and visual elements. Kids can learn insights, Adults can read the news. Scores will be based on complexity of matter.


Status Quo

Too many touch-points to learn and research information; Parents, especially those working, may not be able to connect as easily with what their children are learning about. This gives them an insight into what the kids are reading/viewing, so that the parents can continue to educate themselves on pertinent topics.



Google, Wikipedia, Fb, etc for content; Educational and learning game apps; No immediate competitor combining elements of News/Learning to Game played with Family (w/ kids) or Friends



Learning platform for all ages, personalized suggestions via machine learning, scoring algorithm based on complexity of topics


Revenue Model

Advertisements targeted to users based on what they are learning about (ie. using geo-data, Langone ads shown to NYC adult learning about Tech Strategy MBA); Data licensing of user/family behavior; Content platform (users to partnering full online course programs)
