A computer anyone can make

A computer anyone can make

Kano is a tech startup that closed on a $15m round of funding led by Breyer Capital and Index Ventures. We’re a new type of computing platform, built for creativity. Our mission is to make it simple and fun for anyone, anywhere to make, play, and take control of the world around them.

Kano is for kids of all ages, the creative and curious, those who want to make technology, not just consume it. Simple stories and playful projects show you how to build and code – powerups in Pong, mountains in Minecraft, Snake boards, beats and songs, servers, radios, and more.

“London-based startup Kano, which makes a software platform and DIY computer kit built atop the Raspberry Pi to encourage kids to learn coding, has a new building block of its own to announce today: $15 million in Series A funding, led by Jim Breyer of Silicon Valley VC firm Breyer Capital. Other investors in the round include Collaborative Fund and Jim O’Neill, former chairman of Goldman Sachs Asset Management.”
