Cristina Luminea: ThoughtBox Learning

ThoughtBox Learning make beautiful educational apps by applying the principle of Gameful Learning to engage a young audience – primarily with their Numerosity suite of Apps that teach Addition, Subtraction, Division, Multiplication and soon, the Order of Operations.

Supported by the NDRC and Wayra, ThoughtBox was named as one of the Best of App Store 2012, and has been downloaded in almost 60 countries. ThoughtBox is led by Cristinea Luminea, the Founder and CEO who I spoke with about coding in schools, working in partnership with established brands and about quitting your job, because you think you have a good idea.

Unsurprisingly, ThoughtBox has picked up a few awards and accolades along the way:
