A safe and moderated social network for kids and teens – https://www.kidzworld.com/

 

At Kidzworld, all kids and teens have a space to express their free-spirited selves in our safe, content-rich, and highly-interactive online community.

 

We build community in our connection-focused web and mobile product for kids and teens aged 9-16.

 

Key features including a chat room, direct private messaging, forums, blogs, groups, user created articles, and relevant editorial content to engage and educate users within our inclusive environment.

 

To reassure parents and support kids and teens, user interactions are moderated with a combination of an automated chat filter system and a team of live moderators. The algorithms are able to spot inappropriate context in online conversations, analyze a variety of signals from the conversation (and the user’s reputation), and categorize the underlying behavior to take appropriate action – in real time without delay. We also rely on a team of adult and teen moderators to help create a safe space for all kids and teens to connect and build relationships.

1. Unique Market Position

  • Kidzworld is the only independently owned social community for kids and teens. Kidzworld fosters an environment where kids and teens feel free to express themselves with a community that feels like family.
  • We create safe space in our products and in conversations with users. Kidzworld is a safe harbour that users, parents, teachers and advertisers can trust.
  • This foundation and position allows Kidzworld to be scaled to a much larger global level with the proper tools and resources available.
  • A recently completed brand identity and marketing strategy puts Kidzworld in the position to rapidly scale the business with an accurate and concise message to our audiences.

2.  Focus on Under 13

Kidzworld is the only fully COPPA compliant social network focusing on the U13 audience.

 

3.  Safe Social and content integrations

  • Kidzworld has a unique position as we provide a large database of original content within the social community that allows the members to engage with in a safe and moderated environment.
  • This is an opportunity for our longstanding advertising and content partners to advertise their products, games and movies to access a younger audience. This age group can be challenging to reach due to the restrictions of COPPA.

1.  COPPA compliance

  • Allows advertisers to reach a large user base that they wouldn’t normally have access to.
  • Creates trust for parents and teachers looking for a safe space for their kids/teens/students.
  • Reassures parents and teachers that there will be no inappropriate content or advertising on the site.

 

2.  Moderator-user and peer to peer relationships

A key element to Kidzworld’s stickiness is the genuine relationships formed between users/moderators – the vast majority of interactions and engagement occurs in conversations between people (vs. sharing, posting, etc. on other platforms).

These relationships keep users returning day after day and keep them in app (average session duration = 3 minutes).

According to Statista, Instagram’s average session duration is 3.1 minutes.

 

3.  Kidzworld tenure

Kidzworld has been building community since 2001; outlasting Disney’s Club Penguin and was founded three years before Facebook (2004).  We provide a unique community where users create personal and long standing relationships that grow with their Kidzworld Profiles.

 

4.  Independent

Being an independent website provides significant value for Kidzworld. Not being owned by a major brand like Viacom, Time Warner or Disney makes the site a more attractive to opportunity.

Allen Achilles, Founder/President

Allen is a serial entrepreneur and has been the driving force behind the Kidzworld vision. He brings a long-standing entrepreneurial background and leadership history to Kidzworld. His vision for Kidzworld evolved from working with his then 12 year-old daughter, Jordan, on a school science project. After several hours of fruitless search and countless invasions by unwanted porn, Kidzworld was born. Allen has always been an involved member of the community with his family being at the forefront.

 

Allen attended the University of Toronto, however, his entrepreneurial drive got the better of him and he left early in his fourth and graduating year to pursue his business interests. His early career encompasses the commercial building maintenance industry, property management and hospitality industries.

 

His early career was in the commercial building maintenance industry, founding and subsequently selling the largest non-union building maintenance contractor in Western Canada. He also spent several years in the restaurant and nightclub business.  He has been directly involved in raising over $50 million in equity for private and public companies primarily in the resource sector, in which he has had founding senior management involvement. As founding President and Chairman of Canadian Spirit Resources Inc. he assisted in over $25 million in new equity for that company.

 

James Achilles, Vice-President, Chief Operating Officer

With more than a decade of career experience in the digital realm, James offers extensive, savvy experience in all aspects of website initiation, from planning and development through the marketing process. His specialties include SEO, online marketing, website optimization, and product management.

 

James  joined  Kidzworld  in  2006  as  a  sales  and  marketing  assistant,  returning  full  time  upon  graduation from the University of Victoria. He  is  involved  in  all  strategic  decision making, online  marketing  and  website  development.

 

Jordan Achilles, Online Community & Web Content Manager

Jordan handles all of the day to day operations and management for the social network. Enhancing the safe user experience using a secure moderation platform along with a team of moderators.  This has created a deep connection with the community and a high level of trust with the users.  Jordan’s experience has created a specific skill set to properly spot negative users and reward the positive ones.

 

Jordan has been the advertising sales coordinator and liaison with all of our advertising partners. Along with the community there are joint PR and contest partnerships which help grow and create new business and advertising relationships.

With OpenPort’s platform, users know exactly what was delivered, when, and by whom. They are rewarded for sharing information, and by creating an audit trail for their goods and services can enhance their cash flow and liquidity with the OpenPaid supply chain financing portal.

 

OpenPort’s solutions deliver transparency to the suppliers, transporters and retailers in the world’s largest supply chains. We solve the cash flow problem created by slow and disputed paper records by providing comprehensive, secure digital records for full traceability from pickup to delivery.

 

OpenPort’s logistics software solutions enable faster time to settlement and lower cost of finance for supply chains in Emerging Markets, backed by blockchain-enabled electronic Proof of Delivery (ePOD).

1.  Approximately half a million USD of gross revenues per month and growing.

 

2.  Key customers include Unilever, Nestlé and Colgate.

 

3.  A new JV in the Philippines has successfully launched and is expected to double OpenPort’s top line revenue starting in November.

 

4.  New Supply Chain Financing (SCF) product (OpenPaid) successfully launched in the Philippines, building partnerships with financing providers (banks and P2P lending platforms) in Asia and currently building a dedicated sales force to deploy OpenPaid into the SME ecosystem.

 

5.  New agreements include a contract with Unilever Philippines signed in September 2018 (up to USD400k of additional revenues per month).

ePOD

Detailed, immediate,and secure proof of delivery via digital record, replacing paper records.

 

Blockchain

Reduces fraud and increases trust by creating tamper-proof records with an audit trail.

 

Micro-rewards

Unique method of driving sustainable and compliant behaviour in network participants and obtaining accurate supply chain data direct from sources.

 

Multi-Market

Configurable for different markets to support multinationals with adoption in major Asian countries.

 

Enables Supply Chain Finance

The only transport management system (TMS) in Asia that is already integrated with leading providers of supply chain finance.

Shipment Tracking from Start to Finish

We offer a digital transport procurement solution that is ERP-integrated and provides tracking,analytics, and instant proof of delivery which we use to drive lower costs and the fastest path to settlement available.

 

ERP-integrated OpenTM and OpenDispatch

OpenPort’s Transport Management (OpenTM) system gives shippers and transporters an enterprise-grade, fully integrated solution to tender and manage shipments, plan and consolidate loads, configure assets and driver resources, track and report shipment status, and all aspects of inbound and outbound transportation networks for anyone moving regular high volumes of freight.

 

Throughout the process shipment tracking events can be fed back to the customer’s internal systems. OpenPort is a proven integration partner with Oracle, SAP, JD Edwards and more.We have direct integrations whereby delivery requests from the shipper’s ERP are executed in OpenTM, consolidated and dispatched using the OpenDispatch tool, and fulfilled by drivers via the OpenPort Driver App.

 

2FA-enabled ePOD and Driver App

Built with practical usability in mind and designed to scale with varying degrees of detail, OpenPort’s electronic Proof of Delivery (ePOD), facilitated by our Driver App, provides real time shipment information at your fingertips with two-factor (2FA) authentication by the consignee.

 

Track and Trace

OpenPort’s Track and Trace feature provides status updates of shipment events regardless of the data source. OpenPort integrates data from most Vehicle Tracking Providers together with event, geofencing and breadcrumb data from its Driver App to provide data such as real-time location and navigation history so you don’t have to worry about consolidating sources of information.

 

Real-time OpenAnalytics

Track performance and realize cost savings, operational efficiency, and increased ability to make informed decisions through a set of convenient and customizable operations dashboards that gather ERP, GPS, Driver App and other data from across your locations, shipments, and transport partners.

 

Improve Cash Flow with OpenPaid

We believe there is a need to directly connect the movement of goods with payment. Our electronic and blockchain-enabled ePOD, together with our financial partners, reduces the time to receive payments through paperless submission of electronic freight invoices and POD, facilitating faster approval and settlement for suppliers and transporters.

 

We estimate the current outsourced spend on trucking in Asia is over 143 billion USD per year, spent in a manual process and reliant on paper-based records for both the invoicing and payment between retailers, suppliers and transporters. Most deliveries in Asia that are negatively impacted (delayed, disputed, short paid, or not settled) are due to problems related to the manual paper process. Creating transparent and cost-effective supply chains with visibility, tracking and digital records for emerging Asia is one of the greatest challenges in the modern global economy, and we believe the change we drive here will change logistics around the world.

Parablu Inc

Location: Santa Clara, CA

Sector: Technology

Add to Shortlist
Express Interest

Parablu is an award-winning provider of secure data management software, engineers new-age cloud data protection solutions for the digital enterprise. Our Privacy Gateway powered solutions protect enterprise data completely and provide total visibility into all data movement. Our suite of products includes:

 

  • BluKrypt – a Privacy Gateway that completely secures critical data on the cloud
  • BluVault – a powerful and secure data backup solution designed for the cloud
  • BluSync – a secure file sharing and collaboration solution for the agile enterprise, and
  • BluDrive – a secure file transfer solution.

These solutions easily integrate with existing infrastructure making it a seamless solution for enterprise data protection and management needs.

Regulatory pressures

Regulations like GDPR are making businesses more and more accountable for the data they hold.  This pressure becomes even more pronounced as businesses leverage the cloud for op-ex and elasticity benefits.

 

Regulations don’t let businesses outsource the risks involved with data loss – and businesses are realizing that it is imperative that they have complete control over their data assets, using techniques like encryption and pseudonymization even when stored in the cloud.

 

Concerns / fears around ransomware

Ransomware has the potential to put a company out of business completely. Ransomware attacks have become more frequent in the last couple of years.  Sadly, existing anti-malware solutions cannot be relied upon to detect and stop all ransomware.

 

The rapid and quick moving malware underground ensures that anti-malware vendors are always playing catch-up.  Businesses are realizing that the best defense against ransomware is a reliable and secure cloud backup – which helps them avoid being held hostage by a faceless attacker.

 

Utilization of cloud storage subscriptions

While our solutions have been built to be storage agnostic and work against a wide variety of cloud and on-premise storage targets, our leverage of cloud storage subscriptions like Microsoft OneDrive and Google Drive give us an unfair advantage over competing solutions. Our integration with such cloud storage subscriptions helps customers utilize unused storage in these subscriptions without requiring them to spend for additional disk on the cloud or on-premise.

 

This translates into a ~ 70% cost advantage and makes us particularly appealing for such Microsoft or Google customers.

Strong security powered by military grade encryption and strict segregation of duties

Parablu’s secure gateway processes all data that flows to and from the public cloud. We use AES-256 encryption combined with a strict enforcement of SoD – to ensure that the enterprise has control over the encryption keys and can change them at will. This overrides the “trust-me” security that a lot of SaaS offerings sell customers today, which leaves open the possibility that the SaaS or infrastructure vendor has the ability to also decrypt enterprise data should they choose to. This helps put companies in a stronger position when complying or defending against regulation such as GDPR.

 

Integration with end user cloud subscription services such as MS OneDrive for Business and Google Drive

Our ability to leverage and utilize cloud storage that the enterprise may have already purchased, results in a significant reduction in Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for the customer and helps drive up the Return on Investment (ROI) for the O365 or G-suite subscriptions they may have purchased from Microsoft or Google.

 

Highly scalable architecture

Parablu’s unique 4-layer technology stack breaks through boundaries typical data management solutions run up against. Every layer of the stack is linearly scalable, allowing us to manage and protect data across tens of thousands of nodes/users from a single management console.

 

Cloud agnostic 

Parablu’s solutions have been designed to be cloud and storage agnostic. Unlike other SaaS solutions that tie customers down to a cloud or an infrastructure choice, we can offer customers solutions that work with their choice of cloud vendor, co-located infrastructure, or even on-premise infrastructure. We also offer a fully managed, hosted model for customers who want a complete out-of-the-box SaaS offering.

 

Low cost

Parablu’s R&D is completely done out of Bangalore, India. We have a product team with a strong DNA in storage and security but are able to keep Engineering costs low. Our use of stable, open-source components means our licensing costs are low as compared to our competition.  Our integration with services like MS O365 and Google G-suite means that customers don’t have to pay extra $$ for storage.

Anand Prahlad, CEO & President

Anand has over 25 years of experience building Enterprise software solutions and brings a unique mix of security and storage DNA.   He was previously Head of McAfee’s R&D Center in India and served as Managing Director while also leading Engineering for all of McAfee’s Data Center product engineering teams as Vice President.

 

Previously, as SVP of Worldwide Product Development at CommVault, he was part of the management team that led CommVault to a successful public offering. Anand claims more than 40 patents relating to storage and data management.

 

Anand holds a MS in Electrical Engineering from Marquette University, Milwaukee, WI USA

 

Inbaraj Karuthakannan, Director of Engineering

Inbaraj Karuthakannan (IK) serves as Director and the Head of Engineering for Parablu.  A proven technologist with hands-on experience designing and building products, he has a successful track record of delivering software projects, while managing large teams.

 

IK has a Master’s degree in Computer Science, and has spent a good part of his 14 year career experiencing all the different parts of the software development life cycle. Prior to Parablu, Inbaraj played senior roles and held leadership positions in Engineering at Dell & Symphony services.
