  • Kid Bunch: Developer of digital toys and apps that help kids create interactive stories
  • Kiko Labs: Builder of neuroscience games that help kids build and strengthen cognitive skills
  • Pixowl: Developer of The Sandbox, an open-world builder game reminiscent of Minecraft, and other titles

  • TinyTap: Developer of platform that allows users to design and share their own educational games
  • CourseMaster: Simplifying how students interact with course materials, classmates and faculty

Each startup will receive $25K-$50K in funding from Zynga.org and have access to its office space. In addition, they will receive guidance from mentors and developers at Zynga and NewSchools Venture Fund.
