CULTURAL START-UP OF THE WEEK: Lunii

Next-up on our online cultural entrepreneur series, the Forum d’Avignon would like to introduce: Lunii, an enchanting story factory for 3-7 year old children that takes the form of a small colorful boombox.

 What is your company’s objective?

Lunii is a start-up inspired by our experience that we use to innovate as we seek to talk to all generations. We imagine and create techno-retro connected objects for the whole family. All our offers encourage users to discover and learn about the world by working one’s imagination, alone or in groups. Our first innovation is an enchanting story factory for 3-7 year old children that takes the form of a small colorful boombox. It allows the child to construct his/her own adventure by choosing the hero, the universe, the secondary characters and an object. Once the four choices have been made, the audio-story starts (one amongst 48 possibilities). 

What challenges do you face in your development?

We are in the final phase of industrialization and we must guarantee that the product properly corresponds to what we imagined. For this, you must know how to communicate with actors and industrial contractors, which is not always obvious. 

Moreover, we wish to expand our team and launch a R&D phase for our platform to create childhood stories. We are looking for financing and we’ve engaged the steps needed for fund raising. We need to succeed in convincing the investors on the scalability of our project.

What does it mean to be a cultural entrepreneur?

To be an entrepreneur cultural for us means to be able to enlarge the viewpoints of our users. We wish to make them discover different universes and help them learn about the world that surrounds them.
