Social Entrepreneur

Gingersnap was set up a couple of years ago by a bunch of geeky dads who have worked in digital media since the days of the dial up internet.

Like many families, we saw our own children increasingly gravitating to tablets and smartphones, for homework, entertainment and chatting with their friends…

…whilst our own family and relatives weren’t really being accommodated with the new technology that was on offer.

Marc Goodchild explains Gingersnap, the storytelling app bringing families together

Gingersnap creates interactive story apps for young children, which are customised by older members of the family to feature themselves as characters.

Oli Barrett MBE


Oli Barrett MBE is a co-founder of social innovation Cospa, helping companies and causes to create and grow ventures which make money and make a difference. A good example of this is by helping over 2,000 young people to fix their own youth clubs, with Wickes, the DIY chain.

A great meeting!

In our 60 minute session we quickly got into the nitty-gritty of our business proposition. Oli was able to then take a step back and reflect on the strengths of the product and progress to date, offering some really useful tips and tools.
