"We wanted to make learning about our nation's history fun and exciting for adults and teens together. Our platform learns about the user so we can deliver the right reward that fits their age and interests every time. People in the same family may each receive a different reward based on what they appreciate," says co-founder Jerry Broughton.

Smartphone technology is rapidly developing location aware opportunities. With companies like Google announcing Android-based devices selling over 200,000 a day, the opportunities are ever expanding.
