Our Journey

March 2023

An idea is born

After another tough day on the job, Bernice realised the kids she was working with weren't quite getting the whole picture regarding their situation. She found herself thinking, if only there was an app for that! After a long drive to Amsterdam to visit Fiona and Keeb, she shared her idea with them and they were immediately on board.

Of course Bernice cannot found a company without having her best friend involved, luckily she also happens to be a business whiz specialising in Finance.

We're accepted into the FACE@RUB accelerator

Not knowing where to start, we sought help from the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. We were accepted into the FACE@RUB accelerator where we were coached on pitching and further developing our idea.

Idea contest winners!

We entered our idea into the GUIDE - Business Idea Competition 2023. After a passionate pitch by Bernice, we walked away with second place. This gave us our first Є1,000 to get started and invaluable connections in the startup world.

Salon des Créateurs winners!

We had an amazing idea but not the design & animation skills required to bring it to life. On a whim, we decided to enter the Salon des Créateurs and won the top prize! This gave us a Є5,000 grant to work with a design agency and move the idea forward.
