WeWALK is a startup which has developed a smart cane for the visually impaired. WeWALK, which has its global HQ based in London and has already reached customers in 37 countries, is on a mission to change the lives of the visually impaired worldwide. Founded by graduates of the Young Guru Academy (YGA), a social-tech driven non-governmental organization, the team envisions WeWALK as the personal hub for the visually impaired which enables them to reach all kinds of technology and information services, putting it at the forefront of cutting-edge assistive technologies. This is exemplified through WeWALK’s collaboration with Microsoft, where WeWALK participated in Microsoft’s 2019 AI for Good program to implement novel AI solutions for the visually impaired. WeWALK was also awarded an Innovate UK grant, in partnership with the Royal National Institute for Blind People (RNIB) and Imperial College London to focus on WeWALK’s indoor navigation capability.
