Damien and Frank-David
THE STORY OF TWO DIVORCED FATHERS

Once upon a time…

Damien and Frank-David are childhood friends since they are 13. They are both French and divorced fathers. After studying together, Damien settled in New York in 2004 while Frank-David stayed in Paris. They always told each other that one day they would build together something meaningful and good for the world.

For his part, Damien lost custody of his 4-year-old daughter in 2015 and he was very frustrated to have only very limited access to her teacher. He knew that his involvement would have had a huge positive impact on his academic success, but he could not get involved as much as he wanted because of his authorized visits.

At the same time in France, after ongoing terrorist attacks, schools were placed on lockdown with no access to classes and teachers. Frank-David felt very frustrated to not be able to be involved in his 4-year-old son's education. He also knew that his involvement would have had a huge positive impact on his academic success.

As a result, they both felt a strong desire to be more connected to what was happening in the classroom and decided to do something about it to solve this communication issue that could be raised by many unfortunate situations.

In 2016, That day had finally come and they built and shared the first Klassroom prototype with their children’s teachers in New York and in Paris. The result was the same on both sides of the Atlantic: an enthusiastic adoption by the teacher and a 95% view rate by parents of all communication sent by the teacher.

By listening closely to teachers' needs, Klassroom has maintained a nearly perfect satisfaction rating. It is now used in thousands of English, French and Spanish-speaking classrooms across 80 countries.

This story is only the beginning...
