Founded in 2010, Woozworld Inc created and operates Woozworld.com, a Web 2.0 innovative virtual world, specifically designed to answer the needs and expectations of tweens (9 to 14 years).
Possessing solid and recognized expertise and having the advantage of sustained growth, Woozworld Inc. received Series A financing in the amount of $3M in May 2010 from iNovia and ID Capital, a division of Groupe Telesystem.
Woozworld Inc. is the child of a recent spin-off of Tribal Nova Inc., a development studio based in Montreal known as a leader in virtual world development and online gaming services for youth.
Both a virtual world and a social network, Woozworld.com creates interactive and participative experiences by providing the opportunity for the users to invent their own world in which they define their own characters, interact, conduct virtual business, make plans and organize activities, and, so to speak, generate all that occurs in this limitless universe. All personal information is protected, and Woozworld strictly adheres to American laws on the protection of children's privacy on the Internet (Children's Online Privacy Protection Act.)
The growth of the Woozworld community has been phenomenal. In October 2010, less than eight months after its official launch, the company announced that the Woozworld environment consisted of a million avatars in more than 80 countries and more than two million Unitz (virtual places) imagined by the users.
- More than 1 million profiles (avatars) created (October 2010).
- More than 2 million Unitz created (places in Woozworld in October 2010).
- 23 million virtual objects in the environment (October 2010).
