Pinwheel has been chosen out of a record-breaking 400-plus applicants as one of the top technology companies in the Southeast to present at Venture Atlanta 2021 to be held October 20-21.
Imagine your 10-year-old lying about their age to create a social media account, connecting with a user-base within a 5-mile radius, thriving and nosediving off upvotes and downvotes, and---here's the clincher---engaging in a community with complete anonymity.
As children across the country return to school in person, parents wonder what age they should give their kids a smartphone.
When should I get my child a phone?
At what age?
Most of the answers you get will tell you to wait as long as possible, until around 12 or 13. That's not a solution. Here’s why I say, “phone by 5th,” as long as it’s a healthy kids phone.
Back to school shopping can be stressful. Let’s be real here. You have to get the clothes, the shoes, the pencils, the binders, and all the other items from the teachers list that comes home with you. But why do we buy these things for our kids anyway?
Teachers rely more and more on technology to support their students' growth. While smartphones offer a lot of great apps and sources of information, a typical device actively attempts to divert young minds into gaming or YouTube rabbit holes.
But with Pinwheel, your child can enjoy all of the support, with none of the distractions.
With less than a year of being on the market, the public is embracing Pinwheel's concept of a smartphone designed for kids.
USA Today recently featured Pinwheel in an article reviewing what parents should consider before making that important purchase.
Pinwheel named as a kid's top alternative to smartphones
With the new schoolyear just around the corner, The Wall Street Journal recently featured Pinwheel as one of the best ways for parents to keep in touch with their young students.
Moving fast while playing the long-game: Dane Witbeck has been known to enjoy speeds of up to 175 mph on a motorcycle, yet also enjoys growing bonsai trees in his free time.
The CEO and co-founder of Pinwheel, a smartphone which is now in the hands of thousands of children, Witbeck was recently awarded the 40 under 40 award from his alma mater, Georgia Tech.
Witbeck joins 39 others that boast achievements in areas like the nonprofit sector, state politics, agriculture and military. Georgia Tech selected each individual based on the significant contributions they made in their fields.
