What Problem We are Solving

Our education system needs fundamental change, and the way our children are being educated at an early age need to be changed. As we prepare children to become leaders in a future far different from our own, we at ROYBI feel it is necessary to revise our current educational practices to meet children’s changing needs better. 

About Us

Named by TIME Magazine as one of The Best Inventions of 2019, Roybi Robot provides children 3+ with a personalized education based on their individual learning pace and interests, setting the foundation for a successful future. With over 500 lessons, including language learning, basic STEM, stories, games, and songs, Roybi Robot uses the power of AI to create a fun and interactive learning experience for children.

ROYBI guides children’s linguistic development beyond traditional pedagogies, facilitating collaboration between home and school contexts. ROYBI’s cloud platform creates a shareable learner profile, enabling parents and teachers to come together through shared communication about each child’s developing skills and needs.

Go-To Market Strategy

We already have the connection with retailers which saw the prototype and are interested in placing it in stores. A few include Apple, Amazon, Bed Bath & Beyond, Best Buy, & QVC.

The secondary market for us will be the schools.
