Lingumi: Smart Language Teaching for Kids

It's no secret that knowledge of foreign languages contributes to one’s career success. Therefore, many caring parents strive to teach their child a foreign language from an early age.


Lingumi is an application from the UK for learning languages for preschool children. Its main feature is that the whole learning process is gamification-based and specially designed for children from two to six years old.

Lingumi's curriculum is based on research from the Oxford’s University and aimed at memorizing vocabulary and grammar.


Before founding Lingumi, Toby Mather studied languages at Oxford and spent a year teaching English to children in Russia and Italy. Back then, he met his future partner Adit Trivedi who was a computer scientist from the University of California. None of his family spoke English, and he well understood the issue of learning languages.

While teaching, Mather noticed how difficult it was for children after 6-7 years to acquire new languages. Scientific supervisors explained this by the fact that language skills are better developed in preschool children. To learn foreign languages, a person needs to have many synapses — neural connections in the brain.

Up to 6 years old, the baby's brain is like a sponge — it quickly absorbs information. But, when a person turns 6 years old, their brain literally begins to cut off synaptic pathways that are not used.

In 2016, Mather and Tricedi managed to launch a program of a fun and playful learning for children from two to six years old.

The first prototypes were made of paper and tape and tested in kindergartens all over London. The founders created a set of "learning cubes" that interacted with a tablet or smartphone to teach sounds, words, and even phrases.

Surprisingly, the children had fun: they began to confidently repeat and memorize words in new languages, for example, in Chinese, which they had not previously used in teaching. Parents were happy to buy a toy for their child.

In two months, the company succeeded to release 35 new versions of the beta application. The educational toy was constantly improved and supplemented.


Lingumi's mission is to make learning English effective, accessible and fun for 500 million children. Over the years, the company gathered a professional team of 14 people and invested over 1 million pounds in research and development.

Now it continues to keep prices at an affordable level for most parents and has
more than a hundred fun games in its arsenal.

In addition to the application, Lingumi sells physical training products such as game cubes (interactive foam cubes) and huge word cards (large colorful training cards containing more than 70 verbs and nouns).

In recent years, the number of families who used Lingumi with their children has grown from 5 test families in Germany to 50,000 worldwide. Currently, the startup is going to scale its platform to new global markets.

2023-02-17 11:43:36 5 Tips from Successful Entrepreneurs: How to Be on a Roll?

Jordan Silbert, the founder and CEO of Q Mixers, the premium brand of cocktail mixers:

"The start of a real business is always a long and difficult path, so it’s better to learn to enjoy it right away.

In fact, you should be able to have a good time and make it a priority for yourself and your team. I realized that the most serious risk faced by businesspeople is the desire to give up when the game is not worth the candle.

Over time, things only get more complicated and take more time than it seemed at the very beginning. However, if you are willing to move forward for a long time, you will inevitably win. So think about how to make this journey exciting."

Casey Gerald, the founder of MBAs Across America for helping entrepreneurs:

"The first Christian borrowed half of the book from Judaism. The founding Fathers stole ideas from the British, Romans and Enlightenment philosophers. Even The Beatles stole ideas! If it was natural for Jesus, George Washington and Paul McCartney, then why can’t you do the same?

When you're trying to squeeze something out of an idea or your team, don't waste time reinventing the wheel. Use time-proven mechanisms to come up with something brand-new."

Justin Borgman, the CEO of Starbust and founder of Hadapt, a cloud-computing startup:

"As an aspiring entrepreneur, you will have to realize from the very beginning that there will never be answers to all questions. In fact, most often you will not even understand what questions you should ask.

But that's okay, because that's how you learn everything. If you approach the creation of a company from this perspective, you will always be able to admit mistakes and take them as valuable lessons, not losses. Believe me, there are hundreds more such lessons waiting for you on the way."

Sander Daniels, a co-founder of Thumbtack, a startup for job-seekers:

"I never wanted to be an entrepreneur. But when my friends were setting a company they asked me to join. I almost missed this chance. At the last minute, I made a decision that opened up a whole world of professional self-realization to me, and I didn't even know about it.

I regret being so conservative at the beginning of my career. Otherwise, I would have taken advantage of these opportunities long ago. I was unaware of the secret benefits of risks. But it was a reckless decision that radically changed my whole life — both personally and professionally — for the better. Taking the chance and founding the company was the best choice in my life."

Rand Fishkin, the CEO of SEOmoz and a leader in engine optimization tools:

"It's very simple: make a list of several people you want to meet, send them a sincere email asking for advice. Repeat this ad infinitum. Some people may ignore your letter, but you will be surprised how many celebrities will respond to it and be ready to give a hand.

Persistently send thanks to everyone, stay tuned and contact people at the right time. Be honest and offer help if possible. Some conversations may lead to nothing, but most will be fruitful. Others will not be helpful immediately, but after a few months or years they might bring some benefit."

How to Choose a Color for Your Brand?

Some mistakenly underestimate the importance of a startup’s logo. But, in fact, this is a crucial element of your business that can influence people’s minds. It may either persuade them to make a purchase or, oppositely, alienate.

One of the key logo’s components is a color. Its function is to induce needed association with the brand, whether it’s care, speed, or durability.

Logo designers are certain that the correct understanding of the psychology of your brand’s color is the dominant factor in its viability.

Surveys show that the key criterion for 60-90% of potential consumers is color. Therefore, it has been scientifically proven that people choose products based on color. But how to choose the right one?

It all depends on your brand’s positioning. If you want to reflect experience and traditions, give a preference to classic colors. In case you like to keep your brand strict and yet modern, use more lively shades. When it comes to young, innovative projects, pay attention to multicoloring or a combination of different shades.

The color of the corporate identity is very important, which means that before you launch an online logo designer, you need to master the language of colors. Let’s have a look at the most popular options:

The red color means a tandem of strength and passion, delight and love, but can signal danger as well.

Orange is a real godsend for those who design a logo online. The color is happy and sunny, awakening the appetite, appropriate in retail, encouraging action. On the other hand, it might look cautionary since this is a shade of red.

The yellow color in the logo is a symbol of optimism and creative orientation of the company. However, it may look too pale, so be careful with it.

Green is the color of freshness, tranquility, life, eco-friendliness, hospitality, kindness, and good quality. This is why so many eco-startups pick this color.

Blue symbolizes honesty and reliability, but it can be also associated with

The purple color combines grandeur with pomposity in an amazing way. Do you need them in your trademark?

Black has a special meaning — it is the flagship of authority, luxury, classics, high style, but at the same time, resonates gloom and even mourning.

Choosing the color that best reflects the essence of the product or service you provide is a meditative process. So consider the following:

The tastes of customers. Suppose you open a beauty salon. Its logo may be dominated by female colors. The provision of medical services, on the contrary, involves a complete rejection of flashy shades.

The presence of a background. In real life, the logo will necessarily be placed on some background. It can be a wall, a door – their "color factor" in no case can be discounted. You also need to take into account the color combinations of the environment in which the logo will "live".

Monochrome and multicolored. Do not rely too much on the color scheme. When choosing colors, make sure that the logo looks good in a single-color version. That is why it is better to make it in vector format.

Blockchain Investors Begin Looking to Web3

Blockchain breaks down into five main sectors:

- Centralized finance (CeFi)
- Decentralized finance (DeFi)
- Infrastructure
- Web3
- Non Fungible Tokens (NFT)

In the first half of 2022, total funding for all of the above sectors was around $30 billion, almost as much as the entire year of 2021.

But the crypto winter and the collapse of many crypto-oriented businesses made VCs less keen to invest.

As a result, the total amount raised in the second half of 2022 was only around $7 billion, and dropped as each month passed.

In the fourth quarter of 2022, the number of transactions fell to 182, and only five exceeded $100 million in value.

Within this group, investments in the Web3 sector, which includes Metaverse and GameFi, proved to be the most popular. Throughout 2022, the Web3 sector accounted for 616 deals, while CeFi accounted for only 201.

Interestingly, the value of funding was the same at $9.2 billion for both, indicating that the threshold investment cost for Web3 projects is, on average, significantly lower. In fact, the average transaction for Web3 was around $15 million, whereas for CeFi, it was around 46 million.

Overall, funding for Web3 startups fell by almost $7 billion in Q4 2022, from $9.3 billion to $2.4 billion.

DeFi attracted $3.1 billion across 299 deals and NFTs $3 billion in 243 sales.

The infrastructure sector was also popular. Of the 295 financing deals completed, companies managed to raise almost $12 billion in capital, an average of $40.1 million per deal.

In contrast, the least popular were investments in NFTs and CeFi.

A high-tech Internet of Things (Io T) based SMART vanilla storage at post-harvest.


As a result of using traditional storages, the vanilla farmers/curers face a problem of the beans molding during the final storage stage that is meant to last for 6 to 9 weeks. The traditional ways being deployed currently do not provide the required conditions (e.g. temperature and relative humidity) at storage hence leading to spoilage.
