Leading the way at Smart Kids Group is Andy Ruppanner. A proven leader in his field, Ruppanner spoke of the future of Smart Kids Group and the affect of the MOU with CEN, “Having closed deals with multi billion dollar corporations like DreamWorks and Time Ventures is proof that their technology platform has incredible upside and would be a great addition to our business model. Plus we are very excited to add CEN’s patented rewards engine to our education agenda and the idea we can offer a complete parental controls kid safe browser with the Smart Kids Brand.”
