Yaantu is a start-up founded and run by our two Business & Enterprise students Lydia and Jack.
Yaantu is a platform designed for companies. It motivates employees to exercise by rewarding them with a charitable donation made by their employer. Not only does it make the employees healthy and therefore happy and productive but it also helps to strengthen teams and highlight the positive impact of the organisation by promoting the various causes they invest in.
Lydia says it has been "been a bit of a whirlwind". She explains: "it's my first time working on a project in this kind of capacity and it’s certainly pretty amazing seeing an idea become a fully working product".
Lydia and Jack spent their summer months working really hard on building the Yaantu website and launching it. They wanted to make it both "functional and user-friendly" and its now finally up and running!
