NH Our team wholeheartedly believes that nothing good comes of an empty stomach, and we take advantage of every opportunity to feed our creativity and ambition through our stomachs and have a special love for afternoon tea. We also enjoy sharing music playlists on a Friday afternoon (pop, country, rock, classics, Disney...no holds barred), sharing cooking recipes (our Treasurer doubles as a Jamaican chef), and going for power nature walks.
NH ...millions of people worldwide are empowered to participate in their communities in ways that are engaging, fulfilling, and meaningful to them!
NH I created this company because I love my autistic brother, and I want him and everyone like him to have access to the world. To me, it's a human right to be able to navigate the community with comfort, ease, and a feeling of belonging. It's personal to me! I know our team, board, and investors share my passion.
