Kidooly, Inc. Pre-school teachers don’t relish paperwork, and parents want to be more intimately connected to their children’s school experience. The technologists at Kidooly understand this conundrum, and are focused on fostering better interaction and communications among parents, children and teachers/caregivers. Kidooly has created a cloud service that enables teachers to share and parents to receive updates on their child’s activities through a secure account with restricted access to only family and trusted friends. Parents not only have a real-time pulse on what their children are doing all day while way from home, but also are more prepared to discuss those activities with them at day’s end. In turn, caregivers are able to streamline their documentation, spending less time on paperwork, and more time creating a great learning experience for the kids.

Tablelist Tablelist’s founder was vacationing in Brazil in 2012 when he first had the idea for a mobile app that makes it easy for consumers to book table service at nightclubs and lounges and then split the bill with friends. With the goal of “democratizing nightlife”, Tablelist was born to allow users to find cool venues and book tables at all of Boston and Las Vegas’ nightclubs at any given time, avoiding cover charges, lines and having to interact directly with nightclub promoters. Tablelist app runs on iOS and Android and is expanding to NYC soon!
