Osman Rashid, Co-Founder & CEO of Kno: “Our long term plan was to be a software company but we were building a tablet because we said in order to prepare education forward somebody has to do something dramatic. And we said we are the kind of company who would go and take that risk.
But we really built our hardware and software platform independently from each other that we were able to strip out the software really fast and to port it to an iPad. And for us internally it was really never a “Oh my god, the sky is falling. What’s gonna happen” because we always said by end of 2012 the dominant player in our financial model would be other tablets, not our own. And we were excited to exclude everything to 2011 what’s competing with the hardware because we didn’t need to.”
