Founded in Utah in 2018, Gabb has grown rapidly while establishing itself as the leader of a new business category: kid-safe tech. Gabb provides safe tech for kids with phones, watches and software that provide a reliable and safe experience for kids and teens while giving parents peace of mind. As mounting evidence continues to raise concerns about the negative impact of social media and other technology on kids, Gabb is committed to creating tech designed specifically to keep kids safe, while allowing families to benefit from the connectivity technology offers.
“We’re honored that Gabb Wireless has chosen to expand its footprint in Utah,” said Ryan Starks, executive director of the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity. “The company’s focus on responsible technology use for kids and families reflects Utah’s family-centered culture and values. We’re confident the community will support the good work of this company and fulfill the many employment opportunities it generates.”
Gabb projects to add more than 700 new Utah jobs in the next ten years. These new employees will help deliver on the mission-driven belief that kids and teens need a different relationship with technology than adults. Gabb aims for a brighter future for kids and technology—one that prioritizes safe and healthy tech engagement by offering the right tech at the right time—a vision the company calls “Tech in Steps.”
