Message from Guillaume MATHIEU, cofounder and CEO of Comobi
By participating in this year's Social Changemakers (SCM), getting support and advice from various mentors, and expanding our network, we were able to further refine our services and business plan and grow with our fellow startups. We are very proud of the progress we made, and of course, winning the final pitch competition.
*A total of approximately 200 investors and startup-related people from Japan and abroad, both online and offline, voted in the Nippon Foundation Social Changemakers' 4th Pitch Presentation. In the course of raising my three children, I was struck by how difficult it is to raise children in a way that is normally enjoyable and valuable. One of the problems is the technology that we put in the hands of our precious children: as many parents point out, being a parent in the digital age is tough! At Comobi, we have a very distinctive view about how children should interact with technology. Our mission is to help parents enjoy the precious time of parenting with peace of mind and bring technology usage in a safe and appropriate way specifically designed for children.
