Linkitz CEO and co-founder, Lyssa Neel, talks about her inspiration for creating Linkitz, a programmable, modular wearable toy to help girls learn how to code. 

Our Kickstarter campaign is entering its last week, and we couldn't be more excited! This week, we reached 75 per cent of our goal and have continued to build momentum - we're sitting at $74, 804 from 458 backers! With seven days left in our campaign, we still need your support to bring Linkitz to girls everywhere and change the future of STEM! 

Thank you for helping us reach each and every milestone! We can't wait to see what's to come in the final stretch of our campaign! 


Linkitz co-founder and CEO Lyssa Neel was profiled by Kim Moldofsky in STEM Girl Friday, a weekly feature on her blog The Maker Mom.  Every Friday, Kim speaks with a female innovator in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math. Kim also moderates a monthly #STEMchat on Twitter! 

This week, Tom Emrich's We Are Wearables published this interview [also at left] with Linkitz co-founder and CEO Lyssa Neel, sponsored by Intel Canada and filmed the day Linkitz launched at the We Are Wearables event on May 5. In the clip, Lyssa shares her Linkitz journey, including how being a mom of three girls spurred the idea for a wearable that aligns with how girls learn and play. 

LInkitz also made headlines in Japan's Weekly ASCII. Thanks to Ryo Morita for the coverage, which makes us wish we spoke better Japanese. You can read the original here or see what Google Translate makes of it here.

We're also super proud of the guest post our Chief Learning Officer Chris Wallace wrote for WT VOX about how Linkitz is making #GirlsWithToys a reality. Learn more about Chris and Lisa Harun, our Chief Marketing Officer, also on the Linkitz blog. 

Thank you!
