Armie Carabet, CEO and Co-founder
Fourteen years ago Armie Carabet began exploring different options for fostering literacy for children. In
2003 the vision finally materialized in the establishment of ClickN KIDS, an educational publishing company
with the goal of enabling all young children to master basic subjects. As Armie saw it, there was only one
viable option for reaching the masses with an affordable solution: develop tutorial teaching software that
is fun for kids and deliver it over the internet.
Under Armie’s leadership, ClickN KIDS has gone from an idea to a multi-award winning, cloud-based,
proprietary tutorial platform that has benefitted hundreds of thousands of children in over 100 countries.
With a highly scaleable business model entering its high growth phase, Armie turned his attention to new
products. From concept to retail distribution at Walmart in less than 120 days, a new record may have been
set in flawless execution of the ClickN KIDS Family Tablet featuring the company’s Looney Tunes Phonics
product. In 2012 Armie actualized his inspiration to spread literacy to the less fortunate by forming the
One World Literacy Foundation which has garnered support from professional athletes and sympathetic
organizations such as the Magic Johnson Foundation.
Armie’s history is that of a creative and versatile business builder. His experience partnering in successful
ventures includes owning the Southern California Cold Stone Creamery, Norman International, as well as an
international import-export company and a national direct mail marketing franchise. His contributions include
ideation, marketing, negotiations, training and operations.
When Armie’s not consumed with his passion for helping children, he’s either sailing the waters of Southern
California with his wife of 13 years, two kids, a boxer and golden “doodle” (retriever + poodle) or chasing
his kids from ballet to art, piano, karate and Indian Guides.
Alan Ray Scalone, Senior Vice President of Tutorial Software and Co-founder
The Company’s breakthrough, award-winning tutorial software that has helped countless children the world
over was developed by Alan Scalone. As co-founder, Alan’s creativity, exploratory nature and love of education
set the tone for the Company’s innovations.
Alan’s obsession with perfection drove early product development and established the standards for application
of the Company’s foundational software into vertical markets. His prior 20 years experience in Fortune 100
companies serving as a software engineer and systems designer allowed Alan to see into the future of consumer
software. When ClickN KIDS began in 2003 he knew that a “cloud-based” product line, instead of computer based
models, would set up the company for long-term success.
Dwelling in the corporate worlds of Honeywell, Hypercom and Motorola taught Alan the value of getting it right
the first time when developing flexible systems for continuous expansion to vertical markets, such as tablet
computers. A vital lesson gleaned from observing the widespread adaptation of the software products of Fortune
size businesses was the keen appreciation for the importance for designing highly intuitive interfaces that
would ensure easy use by millions of young children.
As evidenced by the seamless application of the Company’s online tool to a tablet device, Alan’s unique
perspective regarding the interplay of branded content, technology platforms and connected devices proved to
be a key differentiator for ClickN KIDS.
Growing up in the country of Pennsylvania, Alan’s love of the outdoors inspired a hobby as an amateur
geologist by venturing to local Southern California mountain ranges to locate and mine rocks and minerals.
Recently, this hobby turned into “serious business” when he hired his 9 year old grandson as Vice President of
Kidz Rocks, a tool for teaching the his grandson how to own and operate a business.
