WHY IT’S WATCH WORTHY
Talk about the gift of Gabb. Gabb Wireless — created by entrepreneur Stephen Dalby — is adding a new voice to the cell phone market. Determined to protect kids and inspire them to get off their phones and experience the world, Gabb Wireless is the first-of-its-kind smart phone that has all the bells your kids need (talk, text, music, GPS, camera, bluetooth, etc.), and none of the whistles they don’t (Internet, App store, social media). And with billboards across the state and a funding round of $3 million raised this year, Gabb is already dialed in.
1. “Put simply, our mission is to protect kids and encourage life outside the screen. Gabb Wireless is not just a phone or a network — it is a movement to protect kids by providing age-appropriate tech solutions.”
