Curious is the world’s first game based learning platform that teaches Relationship & Sex Education (RSE), think Duolingo but for RSE.
Porn is now the go to source of Sex Ed and this is very worrying. Sexual harassment and assult hves become normalised within our schools and our sisters, daughters and nieces are the victims.
We started Curious because something has to be done to tackle this problem and we believe we have the answer. Research has shown that a game based approach to teaching Sex Ed is actually more effective than traditional methods yet no one has done it, until now.
What’s our goal?
Create the most effective learning tool in the sexual health field to facilitate safer, healthier sexual expression. Ultimately promoting happier, more respectful and more fulfilling relationships.
Current business stage
● Early stage startup, Pre-MVP
● Half way through our pre-seed funding round
● Spent the last year validating and refining the idea
● Have a basic prototype that is being developed into an MVP
● Current team is formed of Founder and Co-Founder (CTO), working with freelance sexeducators and game designers as well as a high profile board of directors / advisors
