The Kive Company Raises $500K To Help Parents Save Their Kids’ Art
The Kive Company, the startup behind the mobile art app ArtKive , says it has raised $500,000 in seed funding. The ArtKive iPhone app allows you to take photos of your kids' art, then tag it with their name, grade, date, and title. You can share the art with other ArtKive users, and eventually says you should be able to turn the photos into a printed book. So instead of feeling obligated to cover your refrigerator with every piece of art that your children create, hiding the art away in boxes, or losing things that have sentimental value, you can save and share the art digitally. And if you want something to browse through and get misty-eyed about in the future, the physical album could be both easier to store and offer glossier presentation than the original art.
