About Lylu
Have you ever tried to explain a tablet or smartphone to your grandparents? Did it work? If not, you are not alone. This is exactly why we are building Lylu.

Lylu is a well-funded, early-stage HealthTech Startup on a mission: building a just world, where all elderly people can live a happy and fulfilled life. 

The first step is the Lylu Tablet. It helps bring elderly people online and connect them to their loved ones. The tablet does this with the help of the Lylu software. The special sauce? The software magically simplifies the look and feel of all apps and makes them look the same - so our grandparents can enjoy the same things we do!

But the tablet is just the beginning. Our vision is to leverage the enormous possibilities of modern technology to improve the everyday lives of elderly people all around the world.
