codiWilliam Mock, Dayu Yang and Chris Oslebo seek an investor for Codi, their story telling, educational robot, in Shark Tank episode 1125. Codi is the flagship product of their company, Pillar Learning. Pillar was co-founded by Yang and Oslebo in December of 2017. They both have strong backgrounds in product development, manufacturing and e-commerce. Mock, a former kindergarten teacher with a Master’s degree in Education joined the firm in March, 2018. The thre current and aspiring parents’ mission is “to leverage innovative technology and educational research to meet the developmental needs of every child.”

Codi uses artificial intelligence and voice enabled learning algorithms to deliver appropriate, individualized content for children. In lay terms, he sings songs, tells stories and engages kids in simple activities like cleaning their room or brushing their teeth. The content that’s delivered is based both on their interests and their parents’ wishes.

The robot is a cute, 8.5 inch tall guy with big eyes, a light up antennae and ears that change colors. He comes with plush “pajamas” kids can dress him up with. Parents maintain control with a mobile app that interacts with his computer chip. A new robot will cost you $125 and outfits are ten bucks each. They’re available on Amazon and the company website. The guys likely want a Shark’s help with marketing and distribution. Will a Shark want to play with this toy?

Codi Shark Tank Recap

William, Dayu and Chris will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner and Robert Herjavec that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Codi will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
