Okaya is currently live and in private beta

In The Lancet, a meta study reviewed 24 studies detailing the psychological effects of quarantine. The longer the period, the longer the psychological impact will last over time: up to several years. In some people, the repercussions of confinement can be harmful to the point of suicide and includes symptoms of post-traumatic stress, depression, anger, fear, drug abuse, and especially low morale.

Okaya uses thousands of data points to understand a person's unique situation and make appropriate and personal recommendations based on their state of well-being.

As we've already seen the consequences on organizations are dire and will likely get worst in the near future.

For example, many studies show that a disengaged employee will cost at least $2500 a year. And when an employee becomes so overwhelmed with burnout or depression and leaves your company it is estimated that the overall impact on your business will be at least 3 to 6 months of that person's salary.

In an economic downturn, who can afford these costs? Especially if you are in the business of providing essential services or are in the medical fiels.

Here is how we help.

You can deploy Okaya ( to your team in less than 10 minutes. a. Your team only needs to download our app, take a 15-seconds video checkin. Then, using computer vision analysis; and other biometrics data; we’re able to understand how someone is feeling over time. b. On the basis of the information they decide to share (confidentiality is our first concern), we can either alert the company of individual problems or give general trends. c. We can also put them in touch with our existing network of wellness experts and / or facilitate the way information is shared between internal experts. d. We offer a dashboard representing the aggregation of the data collected by Okaya. This allows you to have a global vision of the psychological situation during the crisis both quantitatively and geographically.

You can also deploy Okaya as a wellbeing professional: a. The patient downloads the Okaya app for testing (see below) and a 15-second video. b. This data is then analyzed by our algorithm and supplemented by other biometric data collected via the phone and (potentially) via connected objects. c. The algorithm returns a result that the patient can use to monitor their progress and receive personalized recommendations. d. Depending on the fluctuations of the result, the professional can be automatically alerted and access the data (all this while respecting the required confidentiality and security standards) to assess how / when to work with the patient.

We help you be more proactive, alert you on negative trends, and offer solutions to keep your team at peak levels.

Okaya's Story

Once upon a time, in a land far-far away, a group of friends started to experiment with innovative technologies to help people live better lives.

First, we had to take the wrong path Back in 2018 we started building hardware. It was working very well and many people were interested in it.

But we quickly realized 2 things. • People want to improve their wellbeing, not just be told that they are doing poorly (hi, you look horrible...good luck!) • Funding and growing a hardware company is nearly impossible.

To San Francisco we go We were invited to attend the Fall 2018 Refiners program. During these 3 months, we completed our pivot and made the breakthrough of having our computer vision technology work from a cell-phone.

Our early adopters get on the platform We spent 2018 refining our platform. While we were working with early adopters who are focused on helping their customers lead better lives, we also identified several areas for future growth.

A very exiting one is letting companies use our data processing and intelligence platform to build better products.
Things were falling into place and we could start to think about funding and speeding up our growth.

But then a 100 nanometer organism threw the world off When the epidemic started to spread we looked around. Some of our advisors and close friends are on the front line, working in ERs.
Others contracted, the viruses, got laid off. We know our world is changing for much longer than a confinement period.

However, we also saw many groups reach out to us. Families, companies, even religious organizations, are realizing the importance of keeping their teams in top mental shape. But they lack the tools to do it effectively, ethically, and legally.

More than ever Okaya is going to be needed. Our immediate focus is helping our customers succeed in keeping their people striving.

The story is just beginning, come join our team, investors, and advisors in writing the next chapter.
