Wellness app KeepAppyKeepAppy, a personal wellness app, designed to empower users to take control of their mental and physical wellbeing, was recently selected to participate in this year’s Launchbox in association with Tangent, Trinity’s Ideas Workspace in Dublin. We took a look...

By enabling people to track all of the vitals that most impact an individual’s wellbeing, KeepAppy is a wellness app that aims to empower individuals to take control of their mental and physical wellbeing, increase self-awareness and engage in positive behaviour practices.

Acting as a social enterprise, KeepAppy's mission is to destigmatise mental illness and decrease the number of people who lose their lives to suicide each year, and the app keepappycomes with 8 features which have been proven to prevent mental decline, empower individuals to grow towards a wellness lifestyle, and act as emergency care (with our associated emergency-helplines).

As part of their social mission, for every user who subscribes to the full version of KeepAppy, KeepAppy has committed to providing a lifetime membership, free of charge, to someone in need, chose by the helplines they have partnered with. 

Currently in the middle of phase-2 of its development, where they have launched the beta, KeepAppy was founded by a collaboration of Trinity College Dublin students as part of Enactus Ireland, an international organisation, which develops future keepappytalent and creates lasting social impact, by empowering third level students to create and implement social entrepreneurial projects which positively impact our local and global communities.

Over the past year, KeepAppy has won the 2018 Global Social Innovation Challenge in San Diego, placed as a top 20 startup by WorldLabs Elevating Ideas in London, selected as a top Irish health start-up by Zurich Insurance and was recently nominated by the EU Startup Summit as a “concept to watch”.

Now KeepAppy have been selected to participate in this year’s Launchbox in association with Tangent, Trinity’s Ideas Workspace in Dublin.

Run in partnership with Bank of Ireland, LaunchBox, Tangent’s Student Accelerator, is a summer programme open to early-stage startups and provides mentorship, funding, access to alumni and investors, and the ideal collaborative environment to launch new start-up ventures. Now in its seventh year, Launchbox is Ireland’s first and most successful student accelerator programme. the programme has evolved into one of rapid impact, with a host of budding entrepreneurs having used it as a springboard to create viable businesses across a wide range of sectors.

We look forward to tracking their continued success over 2019.
