Pok Pok Raises $6M in Series A Round to Make Screen Time Healthier for Kids


Pok Pok, a female-founded firm that uses digital play to foster the development of the next generation of creative thinkers, has announced the closing of its $6 million Series A round led by Adjacent. Konvoy Ventures, MetaLab Ventures, Banana Capital, and notable angel investors such as Peanut’s Michelle Kennedy and Instacart’s Brandon Leonardo also participated in the funding round.

Pok Pok has quickly become a frontrunner in the children’s EdTech and gaming industry. Its flagship app, the same name, has been critically acclaimed for its unique, Montessori-inspired approach to early childhood education. It’s the first kids app in history to win both an Apple Design Award and an App Store Award for Cultural Impact. The platform’s active community of parents and caregivers on Instagram embraces them for their commitment to prioritizing inclusion, representation, and accessible play for the neurodivergent community.

Sharing about the platform, Co-founder and CEO of Pok Pok, Melissa Cash, said:

As children are introduced to technology younger and younger, the need for safe, non-addictive content has never been more urgent. We are laser-focused on making the healthiest digital content for kids that challenges what traditional learning apps can be. With this influx of capital, Pok Pok will further develop and enhance its suite of digital toys and release them on Android devices. Parents have been banging down our door for years asking for Android, so we’re thrilled to take this step. We already have a waitlist with thousands of families.

Since raising its $3 million seed financing led by Konvoy Ventures in 2022, Pok Pok has experienced exponential growth. The startup has more than 9x-ed their subscriber base, garnered over a million downloads and won Apple’s coveted App Store Award for Cultural Impact, demonstrating their potential for future success. It also plans to expand its new content with STEM-based activities that will build fundamental early classroom skills in math, chemistry, physics, biology, and more.

Adding further about the company, Esther Huybreghts, Co-founder & Chief Creative Officer of Pok Pok, said:

Our mission is to help kids develop essential life skills for a future that none of us have seen yet, but where we’re certain innovation and creativity will be valued higher than ever, inspiring the audience about the company’s future.
