Michelle: Glad to be with you, Spiffy! Big technology companies make the most money when people use their devices all the time. Tech is amazing, but we’re also learning that constant technology use can be harmful or addictive—especially for kids. At my company, COSMO, we’re building tech products that connect kids to their families in thoughtful, age-appropriate ways. We’re building an operating system that will support a whole list of family technology devices, starting with a safe 4G smartwatch made just for kids!
Andy: Glad to be with you, Spiffy! For starters, I noticed how busy life is for today's parents. We see that 78% of parents wish they had more time available to spend with their kids, and 82% feel like their children are growing up far too quickly. Unfortunately, quality time is rare and increasingly hard to find. Although 94% of parents believe creating lifelong memories with their kids is very important, 70% constantly worry about not creating enough.
Andrea: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! Uncharted supports early-stage solutions addressing economic inequality in the United States.
