Can Kids Love Chores? 500 Startups Alum HighScore House Says Yes
If you're a parent, it can be a challenge to convince kids to do their chores. (Or so I'm told.) It's even harder to make them genuinely excited. But a startup called HighScore House says it has found a way. The company is part of the latest class of companies incubated by 500 Startups, and it made its pitch to investors this afternoon as part of 500 Startups Demo Day. Co-founder Kyle Seaman says the company has been operating on an invite-only basis, but it's starting to open up to a wider audiences, and it's already getting excited messages from parents whose children are actually asking to do more chores.
