Kiko Labs wins SBIR grant from Department of Education

Posted by Grace on Jun 30 2014

Kiko Labs among 12 awardees of a grant by Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR) for Fiscal Year 2014!

We're honored to be one of the 12 businesses to be awarded a grant through the Department of Education's SBIR program in 2014. The program is a highly competitive program that encourages domestic small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) that has the potential for commercialization. Through a competitive awards-based program, SBIR enables small businesses to explore their technological potential and provides the incentive to profit from its commercialization.

Thanks to the grant, we will be able to invest in additional content expansion, and conduct usability and feasibility testing in schools in partnership with WestEd, a leading educational research and development agency. We are so excited about the improvements we will make to our product and greatly appreciate the support from SBIR in helping us make this leap.

We look forward to sharing these improvements with you in our next release!
