Existing methods of learning a new foreign language are tedious, expensive, and outdated. MindSnacks is innovating the language learning market by creating social games that teach vocabulary, reading, and conversational dialogue in the language of your choice. Users compete and collaborate within a global community of fellow learners, earning awards and getting real-time feedback along the way.
Our only funding so far has been a seed investment of ~$25,000 from DreamIt Ventures after being accepted into their 2010 summer incubator program. We used this seed funding to build and bring to market our first mobile prototype. With the DreamIt incubator ending in August, we will be looking for the next round of seed/angel funding this fall.
