Guest: Andrew Dunn, Co-Founder & CEO of Siempo, a mindful home app for Android.
Theme: The frontier of digital wellness products
Big Idea: There is fertile ground for creativity in wellness apps. The fact that most digital products don’t design for wellness by default means that the ones that do can have a big, immediate impact. Siempo was created after 9 months of development. The features aren’t extremely complicated, but massively useful. The affordances offered by Android give product teams a lot of freedom to make the home screen more intentional.
Favorite Quote: "By some traditional Silicon Valley metrics, we didn’t ‘make it,’ but we’ve had a really big impact on a lot of people’s lives, the cultural conversation, the emerging industry. And the story’s not over. It’s yet to be revealed the impact of a single mother getting her life back together [by using a humane launcher]."
