WeWALK has built patented tech & Microsoft AI into the white cane to help the visually impaired live safer, more independent lives. With thousands of users in 59 countries and backed by Innovate UK, we’re raising to boost our global expansion & deliver new features via a subscription model.
Visually impaired people have used the standard white cane for mobility for nearly a century. Everything else has changed dramatically with technology, so why not the white cane? That’s why we developed the WeWALK Smart Cane, which was born from our own experiences of visual impairment.
Backed by Microsoft, WeWALK uses advanced tech and AI to better understand how visually impaired people move, enhancing the user experience with revolutionary mobility features. Vestel, one of Europe’s largest electronic manufacturers and a WeWALK investor covers manufacturing, warranties and quality assurance.
We sell B2C via Amazon & our website, and B2B2C via key visual impairment orgs and government agencies. WeWALK is also covered by health insurance.
– 253m visually impaired people. 700m elderly people are potential WeWALK users
– The Assistive Tech Market is estimated at $31.2bn by 2027. As sight loss comes with age, the world’s growing, ageing population is causing this market to grow
WeWALK has attracted a lot of global media attention from the likes of CNN, the BBC, The Times, Forbes & Bloomberg.
We're raising to accelerate our global expansion and add new software features to our high gross margin hardware business, including indoor navigation, mobility tracking and smart cities integration via a subscription model. We’ll also develop new and improved hardware.
