Joining me today is Swarna Ananthan. Swarna is a mom to a 6 year old son, and founder and CEO of MagicPolygon-a storytelling platform available in the AppStore.
Like so many start-ups, Swarna created this app when she realized that her son preferred STORYTELLING to STORY READING. Recognizing a gap in the marketplace, she set off to create a storytelling platform for kids where grandparents, friends and families living far away can tell stories in their own voice using the interactive picture books available in the app.
Prior to starting MagicPolygon, Swarna worked for Motorola, iHeart Radio, Samsung, & NYTimes. As one of the first Engineers of the tech fitness company Peloton, Swarna left Peloton 3 years ago to start MagicPolygon.
During this time of quarantine, social distancing, and e-learning, who could have imagined the importance of personalized content and connection derived from digital platforms. MagicPolygon App is also being used in classrooms as a way to bridge creativity, connection and collaboration among students and teachers.
During our conversation we talk about:
● Her decision to leave a successful, secure career to embark on a start-up journey
● How educators and parents are using the app to connect with loved ones beyond platforms such as zoom, facetime and skype
● Why kids ages 3-7 are her core demographic
Swarna also opens up about her own struggles juggling life as a mom and entrepreneur managing a full-time career.
As a champion of women, and women entrepreneurs, I hope you find inspiration in her story, and support her work by clicking the SHARE button!
