Our Mission

Storytelling is our superpower. Learning is our passion.

We’re storyteachers.

Today’s kids are exploring a world far more complex than the one we grew up in, and they’re facing challenges we never imagined.
What skills do they need to navigate this fundamentally changed world?

The ability to think creatively and critically, to adapt and solve problems, to understand and feel at home in communities far beyond their own, and to express their thoughts and feelings with clarity.

These are the new fundamentals, and they’re teachable skills. That’s where Encantos comes in.

We know kids learn best through stories. So we partner with a diverse group of storytellers to create culturally rich, curriculum-infused storyteaching experiences.

Storyteaching engages and inspires kids to think on their feet, to connect with others from backgrounds different than their own, and to be curious and creative.

With the Encantos storyteaching platform, kids learn the skills they need to flourish—and they learn to love learning along the way.

Our Products

The Encantos app brings the storyverse to life and uses technology to help customize the experience so that our worlds grow as your children do.

But just as learning shouldn’t stop in the classroom, storyteaching doesn’t stop with our app.

By fusing physical and digital experiences, we expand our storyworlds to meet kids where they are, with the kinds of tools they love. Animated series, books, songs, apps, games, puzzles, and other products encourage kids to continue learning through play, curiosity, and engagement.

Giving Back

As a Public Benefit Corporation (PBC), each of our brands is tied to a family-focused social benefit cause to give back to a community. People want to work for, buy from, and invest in brands they believe in. We believe being a PBC is the most powerful way to build credibility, trust, and value with and for kids and families.

Published

February 17, 2022

The first NFT for the SUMA community will be from Latina artist Susie Jaramillo and her Canticos NFT collection

CULVER CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Encantos, the web3 platform empowering creators who help kids learn, has entered into a partnership with SUMA Wealth to bring non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to the Latinx community. SUMA Wealth, the leading financial technology company for U.S. Latino youth, will partner with Encantos to create educational programs simplifying the world of web3, including NFTs and cryptocurrencies, for its members and will provide exclusive access and opportunities to acquire NFTs from Encantos creators. The first NFT introduced to the SUMA community will be from the Emmy-Nominated Venezuelan artist Susie Jaramillo and her recently announced Canticos Club NFT collection.

“The traditional financial system hasn’t served Latinos, so we’re leapfrogging it entirely. Latinos are the most digital-forward of Americans, so they’ll adapt and adopt quickly. And what better way to introduce Latinos to NFTs than with a beloved brand like Canticos and a talented Latina creator like Susie Jaramillo.”

“We’re on a mission to empower creators who help kids love learning, and we want to introduce these creators to as many people as possible,” said Steven Wolfe Pereira, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Encantos. “Many of our creators are women and people of color and they want to reach their communities in authentic ways. Our Latinx creators are excited to launch their projects as NFTs and we wanted the right partner to help us simplify this exciting new world and educate potential buyers. There is no one better than SUMA Wealth when it comes to making financial concepts simple, inclusive, accessible, and fun. They are the perfect partner to help us bring the world of web3 and NFTs to Latinos.”

SUMA will raffle Canticos Club NFTs to members of the SUMA community who participate in their NFT Dinero Session, part of the SUMA Academy and Encantos’ financial literacy efforts. Recipients will have the opportunity to share, trade, and display the Canticos collectible artwork within the SUMA community, and transfer them to their children as an asset for generational wealth creation.

“NFTs are part of the new digital and decentralized financial system, and we’re going to make sure our community has the knowledge and experience to take full advantage of them,” said Beatríz Acevedo, Co-Founder and CEO of SUMA Wealth. “The traditional financial system hasn’t served Latinos, so we’re leapfrogging it entirely. Latinos are the most digital-forward of Americans, so they’ll adapt and adopt quickly. And what better way to introduce Latinos to NFTs than with a beloved brand like Canticos and a talented Latina creator like Susie Jaramillo.”

As a public benefit corporation, Encantos is committed to making a positive impact in the lives of the kids and families it serves. With a shared vision of empowering communities, Encantos and SUMA will also partner on giving back to non-profit organizations supporting Latino communities.
