Cuicui Studios S.L (CUICUI) – Partner

CUICUI is an EdTech start-up dedicated to the creation of serious games and gamification projects. Born in 2014, our initial activity was focused on the creation of software to improve brain health, detect intelligence profiles and cognitive skills and know the learning styles that best suit each user, using techniques such as gamification and models of the conception of the mind as the theory of multiple intelligences. CUICUI’s launch project as a company was “Boogies Academy”, a digital library of educational content aimed at primary school students. After that, we created the EVENIM project (whose commercial name is Cutie Cuis), consisting of software for the evaluation and improvement of intelligence (through video games) for adult audiences. This project has been very well received in the market, with more than 200,000 users and has even given rise to a line of toys based on the IP of the characters that star in the videogame.
