Our Family

Meet the team bringing Kinoo to life

Kinoo is on a mission to create the best possible future for children, their families, and our world.

Led by a team of early childhood social and emotional learning experts, we are reimagining the way families interact online. Understanding the importance of intergenerational connection, we are reinventing the way grandkids and their grandparents virtually visit. Forget awkward video chat. Kinoo is video play!
