SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 17, 2013) - Fingerprint, a mobile learning and entertainment network for kids, has received SF Business Times' Tech & Innovation Award in the gaming and entertainment category. Editors from the SF Business Times selected Fingerprint from a pool of nearly 200 nominees.
Founded in December 2011, Fingerprint is a mobile entertainment company for kids and home to the first kids' play-and-learn network with a library of 28 premium apps (with new apps added each week). Fingerprint families have logged nearly 100 million minutes of playtime, while kids build skills in creativity, language, reading, math, geography, science, money and much more.
"It's an incredible honor to receive the SF Business Times' Tech and Innovation Award and to be in the company of other amazing startups, also being recognized for their innovation," said Nancy MacIntyre, CEO and founder of Fingerprint. "At Fingerprint, we are really proud to be building an interactive entertainment and learning company for families -- one that kids love and parents approve."
The Fingerprint network serves as a hub for the entire family and allows the parent to monitor game play, celebrate learning achievements, send encouraging messages and even join in the gameplay fun with its multiplayer feature. The network also helps parents find high quality, fun-first, education-based gaming apps for their kids -- helping to solve the discovery challenge for developers and parents alike.
The Fingerprint network is made up of both first-party apps created by Fingerprint and third-party apps from top-tier developers from 13 countries around the world. Additionally, many of the apps include children's favorite TV characters including Franklin & Friends, Caillou, Sid the Science Kid, VeggieTales and more.
