“We saw an opportunity to jump into the business of creating high quality interactive products for kids,” says Budge Studios co-founder and co-CEO, David Lipes. “The market was just starting to explode, no one knew what the iPad would mean to the kid space and no one was doing it yet for the iPhone.”
Though they were new to app development, Mr. Lipes and his co-founders Noémie Dupuy and Michael Elman had been running a top audio production house for the videogame industry since 2001, working with global toy companies like Fisher-Price and LeapFrog. This experience as a B2B company, combined with prescient timing, helped them make the leap to developing children’s apps for companies such as Walt Disney and Nickelodeon.
