ABii by Van Robotics, Inc. Campaign's Highlights
Van Robotics develops AI-enabled, smart robot tutors that provide highly personalized tutoring in core subjects - anywhere, any time. Our robots use AI to learn individual students’ learning habits and adapt to key indicators of learning like performance, attention and stress state. Van Robotics’ first robot to market, ABii, tutors K-5 students using national standards-aligned math and reading lessons.
Below a few highlights from the company's StartEngine campaign:
- We appeared on Shark Tank in May 2020, and were selected for the Techstars Austin accelerator program, where only 1-2% of applicants were admitted.
- We conducted a pilot with 4 schools, reporting that 67% of students have improved by 34% after only 3 sessions with the robot. Following this success, we received a Department of Education grant to put our robots in 16 school districts serving 1000+ students.
- Ed Tech spending on AI within the US is $800M as of 2018, and is estimated to grow to 6.1B by 2025, and worldwide consumer robot revenue will grow from $5.6 billion in 2018 to $19 billion in 2025.
