We believe intelligent technology can help change the lives of people for the better and we're starting to do this by initially helping homeless people get off the street and into shelters.


To make this happen we've brought together a team of people who've worked at Google and Nike, a Computer Science MSc graduate from Oxford, an entrepreneur who's started multiple companies, and a charity worker who's worked in outreach in both LA and London. We've also got the support of like-minded investors who want to see technology used in great ways.
