It has a function that can be shared, and it is a service that can solve all the problems related to going out with children with one app. Purpose of this funding
Last year, iiba developed a test version of the app using the Nocode development tool Adalo and verified its functionality in order to solve the problem of finding places to go out with children and finding the next destination. With this funding, we will transfer the development base, improve the UI/UX and expand the functions of the entire service, and strengthen the organizational structure so that more people can use the service more conveniently. increase.

Comment: I sympathize with the vision of “building a new child-rearing infrastructure with the aim of creating a society that is easy to raise children.” I see that you are working on a business area that is convenient and required in the world, but you cannot develop it yourself. I was.

Comment: As information technology progresses and society becomes more convenient for many people, the individuality of “enjoyment, laughter, and happiness” has increased.
In order to deliver value that is more suitable for each individual, we would like to work with iiba to visualize and value unseen value from the perspective of “location information, hands-on experience, and child-rearing,” and promote the fluidization of that value. I was allowed to.

Comment: As a father of 4 children, I always look forward to spending time with my children every weekend and cherish it as a family. On the other hand, you can find out in advance whether strollers can be put in, whether there is a toilet large enough to change diapers, where you can eat lunch, what time everyone comes and what course they go out. There are many times when I’m in trouble. When I first talked with Mr. Aisawa, I could feel his strong desire to realize a world where “there is no hesitation in raising children and life is more convenient and enjoyable.” I made this investment because I thought it would be great if I could use technology to solve childcare issues and enjoy the irreplaceable time of “childhood” more.
