HOW IT STARTED:
Liam, Swiss national and founder, was living in Beijing when his fiancée, Jess, decided to move from Canada so they could be together. Within a week Jess developed asthma, which she had experienced when she was a child but left behind twenty years ago. If they were going to continue to live in Beijing, something had to change.
The goal: to create a system that would provide a clean environment for truly healthy living, wherever you live.
Liam had high standards: if they were to keep living in China, the air in their apartment must be as clean as the air in his home in Switzerland. So, he has found the best filter technology from Switzerland and brought it to China with the confidence and knowledge that it will provide excellent air filtration for their home.
Liam and Jess realized that education and information are the only things that will help change people’s lifestyle. That is why right now, they are working on smart technologies for homes and business to help people manage their health and well being.
Open and available information and education are integral to improving the health and well being. Working for a startup is a lot of fun and a lot of work. Each day is a new challenge and we thrive in it. You discover yourself and who you are in a fast paced exciting environment and life is better when you know your team will succeed because of the work you’ve done. Life is waiting for you to take it by the horns.
