OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Silicon Valley startup Tanoshi proudly shared today that its co-founders Brad Johnston, Lisa Love, and Greg Smith received a $500K deal on their recent May 6th Shark Tank appearance on ABC. The kids computer company won over the interest of Daymond John and received a $500K investment offer.
“The Tanoshi team’s pitch really spoke to me,” said Daymond John. “Their focus on making education more accessible through the availability of affordable tech for kids is inspiring, especially considering recent developments with so many parents having to juggle homeschooling as well as numerous kids who are at home without access to computers.”
Founded in 2016, Tanoshi creates educational, age-appropriate, fun and affordable computers for all children. Designed for kids between ages 6-12, users have fun learning to type, spell, create, code and accomplish great things with this innovative breakthrough. Tanoshi’s 2-in-1 (tablet + detachable keyboard) is the perfect learning tool with complete computer functionality for school-age children and access to over 3 million apps in the Google Play Store.
“The experience was a roller coaster! Getting to pitch Daymond and the other Sharks was a dream come true and we could not be happier,” said Johnston, co-founder and CEO of Tanoshi. “We know we are doing something important and it is validating to have someone like Daymond commit to investing in our cause-driven company.”
Tanoshi was created to provide an equitable digital education for every child in America and the world. It's the startup’s goal to make sure all children, no matter their socioeconomic background, can do their digital homework and develop 21st-century computer skills needed for future success.
John is one of the original Shark investors of the four-time Emmy Award-winning series, Shark Tank. Widely known as the branding and business genius behind his brand FUBU, John currently serves as the CEO of The Shark Group; a consulting firm that transforms businesses into iconic brands.
