Company Detail:

1Core Solution is a purpose-driven company with a singular focus: to create a brighter future for children. We understand the critical importance of the early years in a child's life and the profound impact it has on their development and success. With a passionate and unwavering commitment, weโ€™re on a mission to empower the people who shape children's lives with the right solutions for success. Our journey began with our co-founder and CEO, Simon Ho, a devoted father on a quest to find the best childcare for his daughter, Cassie, who was born with a congenital liver disorder. Simon's desire to stay connected to Cassie while away at work ignited a spark that led him to join forces with the brilliant technologist and co-founder, Swami Venkat. Together, they co-created an innovative platform that not only empowered childcare center providers to operate with peace of mind but also provided parents with a seamless way to stay connected to their children while they were at work. What started as a heartfelt endeavor to serve one child has now evolved into a grand vision - to enable success for 1 million children and the people who shape them. This mission drives everything we do, inspiring us to push the boundaries of what's possible in the early childhood education (ECE) space. One current way in which we are proudly living our vision is by serving the children and families of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). We are proud to contribute to the military defense readiness of our country by ensuring that the children of the DoD receive the best care possible. In addition to our commitment to military families, we are also the main sponsor and co-creator of The Child Care Channel on YouTube. This platform serves as a dynamic space where we come together to elevate the childcare industry through community, inspiration, and innovation. It's a channel designed to foster learning, growth, and collaboration among childcare providers, parents, educators and anyone who can contribute positively to the industry. By sharing valuable insights and resources, we are actively shaping the future of childcare and promoting the healthy development of children. This initiative is a true embodiment of our mission to enable success for 1 million children and showcases our dedication to making a meaningful impact in the lives of children and those who shape them. At the heart of everything we do at 1Core Solution lies our core values - human-centric innovation with purpose, passionate empowerment toward success, and a focus on nurturing trusting relationships. We believe that meaningful connections are the foundation of a strong childcare ecosystem. Through how we conceptualize and build our software, we intentionally think through ways to promote deeper connections among the people shaping children's lives because we know that when adults are thriving, the children under their care will also thrive. This means we are constantly thinking of ways to connect and support the childcare providers, parents, teachers, and agencies, whether that's through better communication tools or advanced educational resources powered by artificial intelligence. As we stand on the cusp of a new era, with children born into a world of artificial intelligence, we recognize the urgency of our mission. We are committed to embracing new possibilities and harnessing the power of technology to elevate the standards of childcare. From cutting-edge, purpose-driven technology to resources that enhance learning and development, we are reimagining the possibilities in ECE and staying at the forefront of developing the right solutions that will drive the industry forward. We at 1Core Solution donโ€™t think of ourselves as just a company; we view our work as our privilege and our duty to leave the world better than we found it. Winning this Small Business Award would be an honor and it will also help us get more visibility to bring more people onto the vision to serve 1 million children and the people who shape them. We are fueled by the belief that every child deserves the best start in life, and we appreciate all the support possible to make that a reality. To the awards committee, we extend an invitation to join us on this journey. Together, we can create a brighter future for the next generation - a future where every child has the opportunity to thrive, where parents have peace of mind, and where educators are empowered to make a lasting impact.
