Sunee is a Romanian start-up that empowers it's users to prevent diseases related to overexposure to the sun.
Our core-value is awareness and our goal is to stop the growing incidence of skin cancer.
Because every year there are more than 5.5 million cases of skin cancer and every 54 minutes a person dies because of melanoma - the most severe type of skin cancer. Also, US alone spend more than $8 billion on skin cancer treatments every year.
We are producing a customizable cap for kids that will quantify the amount of UV exposure and provide statistics and recommendations for the parents through its mobile app. The kids will love their unique Sunee caps and the parents will love to know that their kids are safe while enjoying outdoors.
We will start a crowd-funding campaign later this summer, so follow us to be notified about the event.
Our founder came up with the idea and a very basic prototype in August 2016, when he observed the unhealthy behaviour of people regarding the sun. The team split up after a very short time and the project was abandoned until January 2017, when we formed the new team and decided to make it real.
We pitched our idea at InnovationLabs 2017 Bucharest Hackathon in front of a polyvalent jury, developed our prototype and entered the 10 weeks mentoring program.
5 weeks into InnovationLabs mentoring program and we are working hard to finish our product. So far, we managed to validate our idea by conducting surveys and meetings with parents, we almost finished our hardware architecture, created a fully functional mock app and we are developing our own LED reading protocol.
At the InnovationLabs DemoDay 2017 (closing event of the mentoring program) we presented our second version of the prototype and pitched our idea in front of 350 people and televisions, receiving the "Best Health & Lifestyle Product" award.
We are working hard on developing the latest version of the product, and later this summer we plan to start a crowdfunding campaign. Keep an eye on our updates as we would highly appreciate your help in this stage.
