We established Vilike to develop technology that motivates children to move and play more and creates new ways to learn. We also want to contribute to evolution of education and research by combining technology, physical activity/sports and co-creative development.

-with Love,

Team Vilike

    I started Vilike alone in 6/2014 to continue my thesis and proto. I learn how to pitch, manage a startup and build this dreamteam. I take part in SWD and database design, do Moderate growth hacking via social media and I host this. I guide after school activities for local elementary school children.
