"We weren't even sure what industry we wanted to target because we were being pulled in so many different directions," said Bowen. "We knew we wanted to do some type of learning platform."

Debbie is doing same thing with Sisasa, but her data is knowledge trapped in websites and dusty books that no one in that age group would use."
