Tammy Kwan

Cognitive ToyBox | Founder | New York, NY

For-profit • Early childhood tech + data = better learning outcomes


One third of children in the US start kindergarten unprepared in critical language and math skills. Cognitive ToyBox is developing an early childhood platform for kindergarten readiness. We develop touchscreen games that make it easier for teachers to do assessment and for children to learn foundational language and math skills.

TAMMY | "I am leveraging my experience in developmental psychology and technology to build a research-backed platform for kindergarten readiness. I am most excited that Camelback is open to funding ventures in early childhood education - an under-resourced funding area that is crucial to a child’s development and later success."
