When coming second feels like a win

Yesterday the Acticheck Assure competed with 5 other finalists from across the world for the BT Infinity Labs ‘Consumer Tech’ competition – and we finished as runner-up.

BT runs ‘Innovation challenges’ to find the best of global innovation with a view to potential commercial partnership to bring the products and services to a wider audience.

This competition was about connecting Friends, Family & Neighbours and we’d like to congratulate Invoxia, a global company, who won with ‘Triby’. It’s a super stylish device for keeping people connected during their everyday lives (see: http://www.invoxia.com/triby/), in some ways the other side of the coin to the Assure which connects people when their everyday lives take a turn for the worse.

The judges commended the Assure for the unique and simple approach that we have taken in solving the wide ranging problem of keeping vulnerable people independent with the least intrusion in their lives. We hope to work with BT to spread the confidence that the Assure brings more widely.
