Creating magic together

We are a company who believes in empowering people to make healthy decisions and take control of their lifestyle. Through relevant data and mobile services we give them insights into their personal health, as well as tools which help them enjoy life to the fullest.

During the Hackathon we want you to help us take this to the next level.
If you have an open attitude, the courage to be different, plenty of new ideas and the bold spirit, then let’s team up and make some magic!


Giving data real impact


Use the power of mix and match to develop something truly impactful with our data.

We have the technology to help people measure and monitor their movements, activities and food intake. But how can we channel this so it can be used to make healthier decisions? And can the data be used in a smarter way to generate more insights about behavior and habits?
