Hi there! I'm Joel. I'm the CEO of ETH spin-off
VAY that I founded together with Ben and Patrizio. Together with our team, here in our office
in the middle of Zurich, we develop the future of motion analysis. We combine best computer vision technology
with biomechanical expertise to provide professional motion analysis directly on
mobile devices with the goal to increase training quality and personalization
in digital fitness and therapeutics. Today's digital fitness product lack the
means to provide me, as a user, with a highly personalized experience that I crave.
As a user, I oftentimes feel left alone, conduct my exercise incorrectly, and
could potentially damage my health. With our technology, we close the visual feedback loop
and allow a natural interaction and high personalization. We're currently concluding our
seed round to grow our team to 20 and strengthen our position as the market leader for
motion analytics in the digital fitness market. Additionally, we will work towards a
medically certified product for the regulatory markets, like digital
therapeutics or rehabilitation.
The Venture Kick program has really
helped us sharpen our value proposition and identify the perfect client groups. Additionally, it has introduced us to noble opportunities
like, for example, we've just been selected by Venturelab to join them at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona
within the Venture Leaders Mobile program. In the future, everybody will be used to
have a digital companion at their side all-time to help him achieve good
form and move sustainably. As VAY, we are the proud pioneers of this
revolution of digital fitness and health. As an entrepreneur, and especially as a young
one, you will meet a lot of people along the way that will give you many different types of advice. My advice to you: Take the good
stuff but find your own way.
