Peekapak CEO explains how startups are supporting back to school


On last week’s episode, we talked about the asterisk beside all decisions currently being made, with wary anticipation of what the fall might bring.

“Teachers across the board are anxious.”
– Ami Shah, Peekapak CEO

A lot of that has to do with the shifting goalposts, seemingly day-by-day, parents are forced to confront regarding sending their kids back to school.

Throughout Black Swan, we have investigated how different industries have responded to the challenges presented by COVID-19. This week, we talk Edtech.

Ami Shah is the co-founder and CEO of Peekapak, which provides social emotional learning curriculum for children from pre-K to grade 5). Shah joins to discuss the tough decisions parents and teachers currently face, and how startups can support an educational system in limbo.
