BOOKR Kids has been recognized by Holon IQ which named the Budapest-headquartered digital learning company in the organization’s Europe EdTech 100 annual list of the most promising EdTech startups from Europe.
A global organization, HolonIQ is dedicated to inspiring a vision for technology-driven education into the mid-2000’s by connecting leaders in academia, technology, government and child development for the development of resources needed to inform decisions that will impact the future course of learning.
Launched in Budapest in 2015 by co-founders Dorka Horvath and Dani Karanyi, BOOKR Kids creates a wide array of interactive eBooks aimed at enhancing the literacy, social and cognitive skills of growing children. The ed-tech company is fast becoming globally recognized for its innovative application of animation, narration, text highlighting and games to immerse young students in a world of fun, adventure and discovery to help develop literacy skills and instill a love for reading. In addition to developing its own original award-winning digital learning tools for the classroom, BOOKR Kids has emerged as a top global creative production resource for book publishers and educational companies seeking to create their own digital curriculum materials, from apps to full-scale digital learning platforms.
The recognition of BOOKr Kids by HolonIQ follows on the heels of the company being named a recipient of the prestigious GESS Dubai Award for the company’s BOOKR Class digital app. An acclaimed and multi-award-winning English as A Second Language (ESL) app launched in October in the U.S. and in daily use within over 20,000 classrooms across Europe, BOOKR Class was awarded in the Best Paid App category by GESS Dubai in a ceremony held November 15 at the GESS Talks Arena in the GESS Dubai Conference Center.
We are thrilled to be listed among the world’s Top100 EdTech innovators by HolonIQ, an organization which we have followed and admired since its founding. Planning to meet the future educational needs in an ever-changing world is our highest calling, and we are meeting the challenge by working steadfastly on new advanced ways in which technology can help shape curriculum.
