I’ve noticed children are often the inspiration behind learning technology start ups. My son is what inspired my vision for an innovative learning technology. A problem is just a problem until it affects your personal life, then it becomes a problem that needs fixed. It can be a strong motivator. I also think it is significant that he piloted his app to demonstrate its potential value and scalability before asking for a larger investment. In other words, a Minimal Viable Product is a quick and effective way to find out just how promising your vision is.
