Have a Mukava day!

Every month people employed by early childhood education services spend more than 10,000,000 working hours entering data manually. Wouldn’t all these hours would be better spent being with the children?

 Thanks to the Internet, we entrepreneurs are no longer confined to a local geographic area when building a new business—the world can be our market.

 Our company, MukavaIT, is a day care technology company that was designed to be global business from the start. We want to provide mobile and web technologies and services to make everyday life easier for day care professionals and families all over the world. In the past 3 years we have designed, built and tested the next generation state-of-the-art SaaS service for Day Care Centres.

 Our service is proven to work and it is scalable. We have thousands of happy and satisfied customers. Mukava is now used in more than 600+ day care centres by over 4000 day care professionals, and it is making everyday life easier for more than 20,000 families.

 Now we need your help to take the next step to build a global service.

We have identified 3 main questions that will help us to identify the next target markets or countries for our business to expand:


1.      Does this target market have viable revenue streams?

2.      Who are the trustworthy partners in the target market?

3.     How does our service fit the target market and what are the customisation needs for the local market?

We are now working together with the Twinkle organisation to start answering these questions. We feel that the best people to provide these answers are the people who know the market, understand the culture and share our passion for helping day care professionals and parents to spend more quality time with children. Are you one of them? Come and see how we can work together!

 Have a Mukava day!
