Meet Sharmi!

Smart Buddies™, like all successful inventions, was born of necessity, by a mother who became frustrated when trying to find educational but fun toys for her daughter, Nina.

Meet Sharmi: educator, mother, robotics aficionado, and founder of the SmartGurlz™ Inc. (as seen on Shark Tank). She saw a gap in the market to create a robot for all kids, while at the same time inspiring their interest in STEM related subjects. With Smart Buddies™ Sharmi has created the worlds first coding robot which addresses the underrepresentation of women and minorities in coding. What started as a labor of love for her daughter, has evolved into a company that empowers kids everywhere with skills to become confident, inspiring leaders.
