Creative computing pioneer Kano has announced the opening of its new North American office in the United States. Following a year of international growth for the company, Kano is also reinforcing its leadership team with promotions and new hires. This expansion is fueled by 2017’s $28M Series B investment round and the successful rollout of Kano kits to over 4,500 brick and mortar stores across North America.
Kano’s first North American office is located in the 18th century historic building of Saxonville Mills in Framingham, Massachusetts. The building is a former woolen mill that now generates a third of the electricity it consumes via onsite solar panels in the roof. The new office will become the center of all North American operations, hosting a team focused on sales, marketing, business development, customer success and operations across the region.
This new office strengthens Kano’s existing leadership position at the forefront of the learn-to-code and STEM categories and improves service for customers and partners in the region. Kano is committed to continue building its North American community, on the heels of the mass roll out of Kano kits in retail stores last year. The company also maintains a range of ongoing, local, education partnerships like the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development Connect Home initiative.
