Last Sunday 28th at 8:15 p.m., the TV program Generació Digital has broadcasted a REPORT about the pilot test we are doing of Kiasu School solution in a primary school in Sant Cugat, a town near Barcelona.
The objective of this initiative is to provide more safety in school routes to promote greater autonomy of children in our towns and cities, as well as greater peace of mind for families. We all know that schools play a very important role in our society accompanying our sons and daughters, now with this system schools can help further to create a very positive social impact also on their mobility outside the center.
Kiasu Tag allows parents to transform any piece of clothing into smart clothes connected to their mobile. In this case the school backpacks are the chosen complement, since it is used daily by the children in their routine passage to the school of the neighborhood.
We continue to work to market this solution shortly to encourage and help to all parents with children who can start to moving alone on their way to school.

These days we have been in several media articles. It seems that the project arouses interest …;)
Kiasu founder Alex Tarragó has been interviewed in RNE Radio 4 by David Escamilla in the Club 21 program. They have also spoken about the project in written press such as La Vanguardia, Expansión, El País, Vilaweb, Viaempresa, Bolsamania, Directe, Notimerica,… amoung others.
We are very very happy that so many people think we can provide a simple and accessible solution for everyone. Very honestly, thank you for your support!!
We are very happy to say that Kiasu School has crossed borders!
Kiasu has closed an agreement with the Mexican company Tadiba to commercialize this solution in Mexico.
The first step for its comercialization in the territory, is to create a pilot test and show the solution to local companies. The school chosen to carry out this test has been the Ecolegio Animaterra from Aguascalientes city. This test has been funded by the government of Aguascalientes (Mexico), through the Secretariat of Economic Development and the Center for Competitiveness and Innovation of Aguascalientes.
We are also very grateful to the public agency ACCIÓ for their press release (catalan) disseminating this news.
We keep working!
