KidZui Inc., the San Diego, California-based company behind Zui.com, a content aggregator and search and exploration engine for kids ranging from 3 to 14 years of age, has raised additional $2.4m in funding.
In addition to the continuing development of ZUI.com, the company intends to use the funding to develop Zui Studios (its just launched studio division which will create original video content to be distributed on Zui.com and KidZui) and its first production Zui Buzz (a daily update for kids about what is trending on the net including the best videos, sites, games, which will air on the homepage of Zui.com).
In the creation of Zui Studios, the company hired Adam Jacobs as Executive Producer.
Founded in 2006 by CEO Cliff Boro, KidZui provides children with access to appropriate content on the Internet. Its library of over 5 million websites, videos, and images are approved by parents and teachers. Products are free and supported by KidClicks, the company’s proprietary ad platform for family-friendly brands.
