About the Startup

Describe your product in 3 words.

Anyone Can Make!

How did you come up with the idea for this product?

Kano started because of a challenge from Micah, 6. He wanted to build his own computer. But didn’t want “anyone to teach him.” It had to be “as simple and fun as Lego".

What makes your product special?

The Kano Computer kit allows anyone to learn to code through play. Through hundreds of specially designed challenges users can learn to make apps, art, and more by learning the essentials of programming.

What has been the best part of your startup experience?

We've been able to work with hundreds of passionate creative technology advocates, inspiring creators across the world - from South London to South Africa.

Our story


How we got our start?
It started with a challenge from a 7-year-old who wanted to build a computer by himself, and it had to be fun and easy. So we launched a Kickstarter to create the first computer anyone can make, got 15x the amount of money we asked and launched the company.
What makes our product unique?
The Kano platform is the only end-to-end system demystifying technology and getting you creating, rather than consuming. Our strengths are the lovely DIY kits you make yourself, step-by-step books and tutorials, and an online community of hundreds of thousands of creators, to remix and learn from.
Why we love what we do?
There are more than 20 billion connected devices, but less than 1% of 1% of us can understand and influence them. We believe in a future where anyone can. Our platform lets you build real devices, learn how they work, code them step by step, and share your creations with the world.
