|What problem are you solving?||The American Academy of Pediatrics revealed last month that most kids in the U.S. will have their own personal mobile device by the time they are 4 years old. According to another survey conducted for the National Consumers League, 84% of parents say safety is the top reason for giving them one. But the costs involved in maintaining a cellular plan for their children is an issue.|
The average family plan from the top US carriers costs upwards of $100 per month. There are a lot of families who simply cannot afford that, but need cellular services for everyday communication, which includes keeping in touch with the kids.
Krew Mobile solves both of these problems by including free lines for kids while giving parents control over kids’ phone usage.

|Tell us about the market & founders, why is this a great opportunity?||Krew Mobile was created by Otono, a global technology based telecom company. Otono has created and operates multiple services, including Roam Mobility, Ready SIM, and AlwaysOnline Wireless.Otono was founded in 2011 with Roam Mobility, a roaming replacement service for Canadians travelling to the USA.|
Founder and CEO, Emir Aboulhosn, recognized that Canadians were the largest subset of inbound travellers to the USA and did not have an affordable way to stay connected. There was a business opportunity to service this market and that led to the creation of Roam Mobility, which today has over 180,000 Canadian customers with nearly 2,500 retail sales points.
In 2012 they launched Ready SIM as a self-activating SIM card preloaded with a plan. This technology removed the need for sales or dealer assistance in a retail environment, and was recognized by Fierce Wireless as a disruptive innovation and awarded their Fierce 15 award.
In 2016, we have expanded our services to multiple countries, carriers, and brands using our modular and scalable technology platform.
Otono is widely recognized as the experts in SIM Card and cellular service provisioning and can deploy new wireless brands rapidly at a very low cost.
