iBreve develops self-care solutions that focus on prevention and promotes healthy living. iBreve Ltd was founded by two former Google employees. Their aim is to create a world free of stress related diseases. iBreve’s new patent-pending wearable technology analyzes respiratory patterns in real-time. This enables market applications for stress reduction, remote monitoring and chronic disease management.
The co-founders, Flavia and Jacob, started iBreve Ltd in 2018. Inspired by their trip around the world, especially India, and they were fascinated by the integration of breathing techniques into daily habits. This sparked their inspiration to bring this knowledge to the western world. Medical and scientific validation brought them to work with renowned hospitals in Europe and the US. Google equipped the founders with skills to start and lead a technology business, reach customers across borders through online marketing and sales and a unique network to tap into. So they began iBreve’s mission to make prevention and improving well-being easy.
Building a prototype
The product is mostly focused on monitoring and giving insights into breathing patterns, but it also measures activity and calories of its users. By analysing breathing patterns iBreve provides feedback to its users before stress is about to rise. A deep breath or a micro-mediation at the right moment can instantly reduce your stress level and make you feel calmer.
Once they had the idea of creating a tool to help others, Jacob and Flavia started the process to develop a scientific prototype straight away. They went to different universities to help with the research and bought hardware to turn their idea into reality. Within two weeks, the business partners had made their first prototype to help measure breathing.
When starting a company, there are a lot more things to do and a lot more responsibilities than when you are an employee. For example, as an entrepreneur you take care of product development, funding, finances and HR. Whereas when you work in a big, established company, you may never deal with those aspects of business at the same time.
Today, iBreve has won several innovation challenges, received funding for its dedication to sustainability and was featured in large newspapers around the world.
