tanoshiGreg Smith, Lisa Love and Brad Johnston show the Sharks Tanoshi, their line of affordable computing devices for kids, in Shark Tank episode 1114. Tanoshi means “fun” in Japanese and its creators wanted a fun, affordable computer so all kids can have access to technology. The company is dedicated to providing access to technology with an emphasis on STEM related curriculum. They’re big supporters of Code.org.

Each Tanoshi computer has a detachable keyboard so it doubles as a tablet. It has an Android based operating system with Google’s parental control Family Link app pre-installed. Google docs and spread sheets plus kid friendly coding apps are preloaded too and kids have access to the Google apps store.

The company mission is to bridge the education gap. Many children do not have access to computers outside of school because of the cost of computers. It’s also designed for kids because it has gateways to inappropriate content pre-installed. At $189, it’s the most affordable computer aimed at kids on the market. Johnson and Love are the co-founders and the company employees have a combined hundreds of years of experience in software, coding and computer technology. They’ve taken about $300,000 in venture money since opening up in 2015. They’d like to add a Shark to their list of investors.

Tanoshi Shark Tank Recap

Greg, Lisa and Brad will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, Daymond John and Guest Shark Anne Wojcicki 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 Tanoshi will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
