Company Overview: The Cafe© is an educational technology tool and collaborative learning suite that is used by teachers, tutors, and students. The collaboration suite is an interactive whiteboard with streaming video and audio. The educational software activates the user’s webcam and shared whiteboard for live discussions between students and teachers and/or students to student communication for project and assignment collaborations. Students and teachers access The Cafe© through their school’s Learning Management System (LMS) such as Instructure’s Canvas LMS. Cranium Cafe’s interactive learning whiteboard is more then a learning website, it allows relationship building between teachers and students and peer-to-peer. The Cranium Cafe one-on-one online collaboration tool contributes to increased academic achievements, graduation goals, and academic enrollment.
Future Growth Plans: Cranium Cafe is already positioned to offer The Cafe communications platform and the Cafe Scheduler for private companies. We will install our software into their client management system (CMS) so they can communicate with customers on a global scale. We have also begun to develop this software into a micro enterprise system which will be a knowledge marketplace. The micro enterprise system will allow individuals their own cafe and profile for their virtual storefront. They can set their hourly rate and share their knowledge and receive payment for their one-one-one knowledge sharing.
Major Accomplishments: This is Tracy Diven's third business. The first is Photoge, a photo simulations company that simulates the end construction of cellular tower. The second company is Photoge Designs that specializes in web site development, branding, and print design. For Michael Gorham, this is also his third tech company. And, this is Greg Diven's fourth company. Also, we have built this software with pure sweat equity. We have not taken any funding and we own the company solely.
