Briefly summarize your nominated project for someone who is unfamiliar with your work. Think of this as your elevator pitch.
Stop, Breathe & Think is a free, friendly and simple tool to guide people of all ages and backgrounds through meditations for mindfulness and compassion. We wanted to build an app that can get the whole world meditating for 5 minutes a day.
What inspired you most to follow your dreams/vision while working on this project?
Seeing first-hand the positive impact that just a few minutes of meditation a day can have in a person’s life, we wanted to share that with everyone by making meditation simple and accessible.
What made your project stand out in your industry/field and unique from the rest? What obstacles did that present and how did you overcome them?
The simplicity and ease of getting started. Meditation seems hard, boring, and too spiritual at times. We make the process so simple that before you know what’s going on, you’re already doing it! We created easy, unintimidating access through our check-in process, which curates meditations in response to a user’s emotional and physical state. Then, watching your progress becomes addictive!
