All right let's got to San Francisco we have dandy as sterling joining us they sealed and Goldie blocks which is -- a company that's looking to.
-- the next generation of -- now engineers that's almost like an oxy more on how Mario.
I was -- -- -- you know things are coming on Debbie -- to tell us a little bit about Goldie -- Goldilocks is -- toy that I created to try and spark an interest -- engineering among young girls it's construction fat and -- series combines.
And it's -- building blocks the girl engineer and is he read along with her stories you get to build what she -- So from what what age groups we did us.
So right now four through nine is really our sweet spot a -- Are you saying that maybe parents should stop reading Cinderella to their children and start doing things like this -- And get -- they girls interested in this stem kind of careers science technology engineering and math at an early age.
So that no offense is Cinderella no reason to stop breathing room and -- last.
It's -- and let's split three Cinderella Andrea about building blocks to I really -- create a role model character for girls who is more than just a -- fast.
So goalie blacks -- tinker issue -- -- -- she's an inventor.
And if girls think she's cool and wanna be like her then hopefully -- I'll get excited about math and science I -- As well which is something that I studied and there -- very many women in there and and I want I'm hoping to get more.
Debbie I respect that and I applied -- you tremendously.
For the efforts what do people see eighteen which critics say that your overstepping your bounds are no way or just leave our little girls alone but he said.
Well what I -- -- the critic that that the thing that I hate hearing the most is that the girls.
-- -- -- -- Instead math and science are the girls to started just said and it's just not true.
I can't tell you how thousands now have girls around the world are playing with building blocks and they are excited about it in their learning new vocabulary -- -- building and having a blast some so.
I think this is only the beginning yet you reached one million in pre order sales in your first three months after lunch that's pretty incredible.
Yeah I think I'm I'm just so happy because I think that parents and kids are ready for events and where can we find Goldie -- So good -- -- dot com GO LD IEB -- acts dot com.
You can buy it there and then you can also check -- -- -- cater we're not selling -- all across the US and Canada okay.
Are you can branch out and maybe sell -- some emerging mark in I think European countries.
We've gotten so much international and Frist which blows my mind and and the answer is yes when we're ready we're.
Just a brand new start -- we go one step at a time we international interests -- countries are we talking predominately.
Predominantly -- the UK and Australia okay yeah I was just curious because.
One -- the issues that we're facing here in the US especially as far as our Silicon Valley and technology companies goes is that.
That people most qualified for hours stand tight jobs are foreigners from.
China and India and and countries like that so just wondering if those for the countries that -- sparking the most interest.
But again and it's really been.
It's been here and Australia so far now that I could see it doing really well on those countries because those cultural cultures really put a lot of emphasis on engineering for their -- -- how are you getting your financing.
So I started out when they -- ground -- -- -- -- and friends and family and Angel investors.
And then all of the pre order sales took us pretty far.
Right now we're raising a serious day at financing round and we're also act talking to several banks and I picked choosing a partner.
And finally -- what is your background.
My background -- -- mechanical engineering and -- design from Stanford.
Very nice thinking so much steady sterling the CEO Goldie blocks lots of luck lovely idea.
I'm glad someone is actually starting to do it on the ground level really appreciate your time.
Thank you so my --
