Rachel is a former aspiring classical pianist who moved from NZ to Korea to start fresh in 2008. While working as the Head of Training Center at one of Korea’s top ESL companies, she found passion in education and wanted to make a change. After graduating with her Masters, she worked at NAVER V LIVE (live-streaming K-pop application for global fans) as the globalization team leader, where she discovered her love for community building and digital platforms. Rachel’s first application, Tickr, a YouTube curation app for children, parents, and teachers. It showed great potential and in the first 3 months, Tickr acquired 83% of downloads from North America and 96% of the downloads originated from the App Store Search, “Safe Social Media for Kids.” The company struggled to find a monetization model and lacked educational content. And, that’s how BeAptive began. Rachel and her co-founders saw real value in Tickr and spent the last 11 months pivoting to develop BeAptive with a mission to provide a real value-add social media designed just for children
