LYS Technologies would not be here today without the invaluable support from the WE Innovate Programme. The programme not only helped me turn an idea into a business, but also inspired me to become a confident entrepreneur in an otherwise male dominated field. I still work with my mentor from the WE Innovate Programme to this day.

LYS Technologies is determined to advance research on the circadian rhythm together with wearable technology to raise global awareness of the importance of light for health and wellbeing. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, through which we raised £52,000, the LYS 1.0 wearable is now selling worldwide and the app is available on the AppStore and Google Play.
