Promoting a Life-long Love of Learning through Interactive Games.” – Tomáš Bárta, Czech Republic

May 20, 2015: For entrepreneur Tomáš Bárta, the most important discussion about education is, “…if the word ‘education’ is even the proper word. Education seems to connote something passive, boring, annoying, and most of all, not creative,” he says. “The biggest inspiration I had in life was striving for personal development: gaining leadership skills, improving my character, developing my strengths and weaknesses, and trying to perfect my knowledge in multiple areas. And that’s something I am trying to apply in all of my companies. I try to motivate all the people around me to adopt this positive outlook on self-development.”



Tablets for Everyone: Preschoolers Learn and Play Thanks to This Innovative Startup!

As technology becomes more prevalent in everyday life, it’s getting harder for parents to exclude this feature from their children’s playtime. And many developers have jumped on the bandwagon, creating apps specifically for kids and preschoolers, without thinking about the impact they might have. Parents now have to deal with sifting through thousands of apps to find the real gems in the digital mine--luckily, when Lipa Learning was launched, their search became much easier. Lipa uses technology to get out of technology: their applications encourage family participation and interaction with the physical world to make real-life memories.

How 100 Million CZK Turned Into A Global Cause

When Czech entrepreneur Tomáš Bárta first started noticing how much time children spent on tablets--whether at the dinner table, or on the bus, or even on a family vacation--he asked himself, why can’t apps serve a greater purpose than just being an entertaining distraction? "We wanted to prepare a holistic system which would more or less cover the entire core development of children up to the age of six," says Bárta. And so he jumped headfirst into the project bearing the name Lipa Learning – investing almost 100 million CZK over the last two and a half years.

Until now, Bárta had never been involved in the business of childhood education. In Czech Republic, he is known as the owner of the company EMTC, which managed to procure over half a million customers for the largest alternative energy supplier, Bohemia Energy.

But he has jumped into the field of education with vigor. Although it’s located in Prague’s Žižkov, the project found its way into the American startup incubator RocketSpace in Silicon Valley. Bárta put together an international team of 40 members and continues to visit various international conferences, where he promotes Lipa.

His intentions rest on a simple principle – combining business with pleasure. "Imagine that you give an encyclopedia of biology to a five-year-old and tell him, go and learn it all. I’ll be back in a month to see how much you remember. He won’t learn anything because he isn’t interested in it. If you give him World of Warcraft and the same task, in a month he’ll know it all inside-out." Education in the form of play is what makes learning truly enjoyable and effective.

It’s important to realize that the entire world is turning its attention to children’s education more and more. As Microsoft founder Bill Gates stated, there are more than 250 million people in the world who still don’t have basic skills such as writing, reading and arithmetic. The philanthropic goal for the following years is to ensure that everyone, regardless of which corner of the planet they live in, has learning opportunities.

It is with the accessible digital tablet that Bárta sees the solution. "Tablets freed from pricing margins and used only for playing educational games could solve the problems regarding financing the building of new schools, the cost of hiring teachers, or transporting children to school," says Bárta.

Lipa’s Not the Only One

The biggest of Lipa’s competitors are Agnitus and Kidaptive. The project Agnitus was founded in the year 2011 by Haris a Azhar Khan, and apart from developing more than 100 skills in children, one of the applications also offers 23 interactive books available on the tablet and online.

The project Kidaptive dates back also to the year 2011 and claims to improve 75 different dimensions of learning. It is backed by P. J. Gunsagar and Dylan Arena. Both applications also enable parents to see how well their child did in the games.

Unlike their competitors, Lipa’s system focuses on the development of the child as a whole -- in other words, promoting not only academic skills but skills like social competence, physical health, and environmentalism. When it comes to basic literacy and maths, kids can play Lipa Mole, where they learn to draw out each letter of the alphabet and form their first short words, or kids can play Lipa Frog and enjoy leaping across lily pads while learning to count to 10.

I Believe in Self-Investments

Bárta demonstrates this idea by self-financing his own startup instead of going to investors. He put his own 100 million crowns towards the cause. “I know that it’s a lot of money. And it’s a bit unusual in this field to finance the project on your own,” Bárta says.

He has been rejecting all offers from external investors and repeated offers to buy Lipa. “There are some offers, of course. But right now, I’m definitely not interested in selling it, and I don´t need an investor. I think we can develop the project and become large even without the venture capital,” he adds.

Lipa offers 17 learning apps and counting, localized into 8 different languages (and that’s just the start). Their digital curricula are available on all platforms like iOS, Android, and even Windows, so no matter the type of device a family has, they can easily access a flawless system.

"If everything goes according to plan, we should fulfil 80% of our entire development system by autumn (2015)," Bárta says. Individual apps are downloadable right now and the company already has more than 400 thousand downloads from all over the world.

To get unbiased feedback from their most important users, the company tests its products every two weeks in preschools around Prague, and edits based on the reactions of the children.

Lipa also runs testing in its own preschool, which Bárta invested in last year. The multilingual, enthusiastic staff uses Lipa applications as learning tools in everyday classwork. There’s also the Lipa Adventure Club that meets once a week in the preschool and teaches kids vital skills for life through apps and real world activities. The preschool has two large classrooms, 200 square meters of garden, a playground, trampoline, and of course a newly-planted Linden tree (in Czech, Lípa) to signify Lipa’s dedication to the children.

Saving the Environment One Mobile at a Time

Minimizing our environmental impact has become one of the greater concerns of our century--whether that means reducing our energy use, or re-using or recycling our waste. At Lipa Learning, we feel that it’s important to be consistently on message about this and about how to keep focused on the positive actions that we can do for our children and grandchildren. That’s why we decided to join up with Remobil to help them with their drive in eliminating waste from used mobile phones.



In the world today, there are over 7 billion mobile phones. Here in the Czech Republic, there are over 127 mobile phones per 100 inhabitants. If we don’t do something, all of them--including the arsenic and lead which they contain--will go straight back into the environment. Without proper containment, they can end up being poison to our children in the future. Remobil is a non-profit organization that’s dedicated to alleviating this problem. They first partner with local corporations and organizations to collect all the used mobiles that they can. They work with disabled people to bring them jobs and safely disassemble those mobile phones. They then sell off any parts of value and donate the profits to Jedličkův Institute and Schools, a learning organization benefiting physically disabled persons.

Lipa collected 76 mobile phone and 9 kilograms of various electronic goods, like wires, chargers, and headphones, to be recycled by Remobil. Remobil awarded us with a Certificate in Social Responsibility, letting us know that through our donation, we:

  • saved 120 kg of carbon emissions
  • saved 2272 liters of water
  • saved 734 km by car
  • added 760 CZk to Jedličkův ústav
  • gave 12 hrs to disabled people

You can get involved too! If you’re in the Czech Republic, contact Remobil through their website at http://www.remobil.cz and help set up a collection box at your company. It really is that simple. If you’re not in the Czech Republic, then just take a moment to search for an organization in your area that does the same. Start your mobile recycling today!
