CTO/ Co-Founder

About us

We are an exciting, revolutionary and thriving healthtech start-up with a purpose and mission to change the way we support people with dementia, and also the thousands of people that care for them.

We are building a sustainable business: popular, secure, regulatory compliant, great to work for and profitable, in order to improve lives for a very long time to come.

With 44,000 downloads this year (growing 10% month-on-month), and games played in over 100 countries, we are now expanding our popular free app into freemium, then leveraging our unique content in an omni-channel platform supporting delivery, certification and online training.

                                                        

Our Vision is to “turn memories into games” to improve the lives of the elderly, a little bit, everyday.

Our Mission is to create trusted digital health technology solutions to delight our elderly community, their families, friends, carers and healthcare professionals, truly making a positive impact on their lives.

Culture is often described as what happens when no one is looking – ours is inclusive, rewarding, warm, candid, fiscally conservative and honest to-the-bone. Integrity is everything.

Our Company Values are:

  • Using technology to delight and engage the elderly – regardless of cognition, vision, hearing, dexterity, location and other challenges.
  • Playing well with others.
  • Collaboration. Quick decision making. Welcoming of strategic partnerships.
  • Frustration-free design based on the principle: “don’t make me think”.
  • Appreciating our island roots but always taking a global view.
  • We are data led: We love AI and A/B Testing; we are totally committed to security, privacy, data integrity and consumer protection; we actively seek clinical validation of our efforts to build confidence for our customers.
  • We support the charities and communities supporting the elderly, globally.
