Anand Mahindra invests in company that makes literacy devices for the blind
Thinkerbell Labs, which makes literacy devices for the blind, has received angel investment of Rs 1.3 crore from Indian Angel Network and Anand Mahindra.
The startup will use the funds to run pilot projects in the United Kingdom. Founded in 2016, Thinkerbell Labs aims to do away with the problem of low literacy among the blind population all over the world.
One of its products is Annie, which helps address the low Braille literacy among the blind by helping them learn how to read, write and type in Braille. Annie can be used directly by children and young adults to self-learn Braille and be monitored by the teachers or parents.
