Raul Gutierrez, Founder and CEO of Tinybop, has enjoyed a long career in technology and arts. As a high school student in rural East Texas, he was an early Apple developer (when programming for the Mac meant buying a Lisa). Raul was admitted to Princeton University as an engineer but graduated with a BA in art history after writing his thesis on Chinese Eastern Zhou bronze casting techniques. Tinybop builds elegant, educational APPs to spark the curiosity of kids around the globe. Their APPs empower kids to learn and create by diving into big ideas, testing how things work, and making connections about the world they live in. Built from the ideas that kids learn by trying things out for themselves and should have the freedom to create as they please, their apps encourage open play. Exploration is rewarded with physics-based animations, sophisticated sound design, and artificial intelligence. As they play and create, kids learn by experiencing the joy of discovery and figuring things out on their own.
