Presenting Companies:
VONK is a new play-based social platform for kids and families. VONK uses offline play to advance therapeutic, educational and cultural goals. We bridge the online and offline world and use technology to spark more creative play while providing a tool to allow kids to effectively play across distance. We raised $250k in initial seed and built an Alpha version that we tested over the summer and are part of the StartED Incubator at NYU. Our team are all experienced in the kids space and bring expertise from places like Apple and Disney. Co-founder Dawn Nadeau is a two-time founder in the kids space, and the first was a TIME magazine best invention in 2014.
