SmartGurlz™, like all successful inventions, was born of necessity, by a mother who became frustrated when trying to find educational but fun toys for her daughter, Nina.
Meet Sharmi: Nina’s mom, robotics aficionado, and founder of SmartGurlz™. She saw a gap in the market to create a robot for doll-loving girls, while at the same time inspiring their interest in STEM related subjects. In creating SmartGurlz™, Sharmi created a the world’s first self- balancing coding robot for girls. What started as a labor of love for her daughter, has evolved into a company that empowers girls everywhere with skills to become confident, inspiring women.
Sharmi was recently nominated to AdWeek's top 37 women 'Who Are Disrupting the Status Quo and Championing Gender Diversity in Advertising and Tech.'
