SkoolLive

SkoolLive is a Los Angeles startup that seeks to place digital billboards (kiosks) into public schools. The main purpose of the kiosks is to generate advertising revenue from the captive audience of students who must walk by the ever-changing advertisements flashing on the digital panels. SkoolLive says they will share some of the ad revenue with schools. The company also seeks to use the kiosks not just to advertise to schoolchildren, but to facilitate student purchases.
