The first goal of £20,000, set by Story Enjoy, has been reached, this success is dedicated to you! In total, 21,078 € were collected, which is 105% of the expected amount. Successfully funded on Friday, December 16, 2016, Story Enjoy can now continue this beautiful and ambitious story.
To develop the application, a lot of work still needs to be done: gathering a community of authors and illustrators, integrating each story, engaging in communication actions, creating a community, organizing user tests during the development, in order to be as close as possible to your expectations. All these steps require a total amount of 300 000 €.
The idea of this beautiful and ambitious web application was born in the head of Caroline Lopez after the birth of her son. When she moved to Reunion Island, she felt a great sadness at the thought that the grandparents would not be able to see their grandsons grow up.

Started alone at the beginning, the adventure now includes Nicolas, developer, Maxime, UI-UX designer, Annabelle, art director and Manuel, finance partner.
