Company Overview

Digital Dream Labs (DDL) is a consumer electronics company which develops patented, industry-leading personal robots and hands-on STEM education video games. DDL makes learning 21st century skills fun while reducing educational inequities in schools.

DDL's products satisfy the need for engaging, language and system-agnostic solutions that allow children of all ages to have fun while learning 21st century skills (communication, collaboration, creativity and computational thinking). With an experienced team and an exciting product roadmap that has the potential for 60%+ revenue growth, DDL is poised to capture its sector of the $4 trillion worldwide education market.

Whether it’s an educational toy robot like Cozmo or an interactive video game for Puzzlets, these engaging products are fun first and make learning incidental. By playing with these products, students are learning more and building confidence in their STEM / STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) skills, making them happier and more engaged students.

In preliminary classroom studies, students using DDL’s hands-on learning solutions showed a 10-25% gain in logic and sequencing skills after only 8 weeks. More importantly, the studies showed that this tactile intervention helped to reduce the achievement gap with at-risk students thriving alongside their classmates.

The educational technology (Edtech) market is projected to grow 16% YoY for the next three years and beyond, and startups and crowd-funded projects are rushing to enter the space, promising revolutionary new learning technologies that are nevertheless unlikely to deliver due to unforeseen distribution and other constraints. With 8,000+ school districts in the United States and millions of families using their products around the world, DDL’s tested manufacturing and development capabilities have already established significant barriers to entry for its competitors.

With the continued growth of the Edtech / smart classroom market and further expansion of the business's consumer sales, DDL is expecting to achieve YoY revenue in excess of $100 million by 2023. Join DDL in its mission to spark curiosity in STEM topics through their innovative, hands-on technology.
