  • Rural communities and developing nations? They get left behind.
  • It has been shown that children that have early access to education have better life outcomes.

The Solution:

  • Digital content platforms are an efficient method to engage with students.
  • Boxby, software platform solution with complementary hardware.
  • BoxBy offers offline content cache for disconnected areas.
  • BoxBy is scalable and provides quality content to users of all ages.
  • The platform provides curated opt-in content.


  • BoxBy provides a new way to bring education to previously underrepresented markets.
  • The platform supports many open-source courses with the ability to host university directed coursework.
  • BoxBy users have the ability to access cached data anytime, anywhere.
  • BoxBy's cache can update automatically once connected to the internet or with portable physical storage.
  • BoxBy is also designed for accessibility in mind.
