Backstage Capital has recently announced their investment in Zyrobotics, LLC. The award-winning educational technology company focuses on building AI-powered STEM games and learning tools for young children. This investment will help place Zyrobotics at the forefront of children’s educational technology.
Backstage Capital has made it a priority to invest in underrepresented start-ups, mostly lead by women and founders of color. “In a sector where black women receive only 0.2% of all funding, Backstage Capital overwhelmingly — and intentionally — backs underrepresented founders. 72% are people of color; 62% are women; 44% are women of color, the most under-funded of groups; and 12% openly identify as LGBTQ.” (via Forbes.com)
As Zyrobotics joins the team of Headliners, they join the rankings of over 50 businesses with investments from Backstage Capital. Zyrobotics is excited to be a part of this circuit of successful companies paving the way for underrepresented founders. “We invest in the very best founders who identify as women, People of Color, or LGBT, in the U.S. I personally identify as all three,” as stated by Arlan Hamilton, Managing Partner of Backstage Capital.
Zyrobotics has produced several educational apps and STEM books such as The Name Game, Robot Play, Octoplus, and more. They also specialize in systems that allow children with special needs, whether they have a learning, sensory, cognitive, or a motor disability, access to STEM content. Their unique learning systems have allowed Zyrobotics to build an unmatched genre of products, attracting investors like Backstage Capital.
