Project Overview

Hollo envisions a future of tech-based, accessible, and comprehensive personal health management tools. As a Smart AI Powered Preventative platform, Hollo, aims at improving the mental health of individuals by integrating Machine Learning with suggestive diagnosis, therapy, and continual monitoring, facilitating self-help and professional therapeutic services. By reducing the need for additional technology (wearables), we make this new tracking technology accessible for less privileged communities in the world. We hold two value propositions close to our heart. We equip those finding stress points or symtoms of mental illness in their lives with a quantitative solution to help track their mental health through different metrics like sleep quality, heart rate, stress and social media sentiment. We aim to continue to improve our research in collaboration with research departments from universities around the world. As a platform, Hollo also equips therapists (and their NGOs), who don’t have consistent, quality patient feedback to aid retentive treatment, with a back-end webapp equipped with empirical and actionable findings on their patients; using the data analysis to enhance time efficiency, and construct predictive models. Streamlining admin services and improving the screening processes for institutions to reach out to at-risk individuals.

About Team

Our diverse team comes from The University of Hong Kong, cultivated from two different faculties. Our team entering the Imagine Cup involves two of our Co-founders (Cameron our CEO and Piyush our CTO). Our third Co-founder & CIO(Ajit) will be supporting our team back in Hong Kong. Bringing a powerhouse team involving Entrepreneurship, Computer Science and backed by our supporting students from different faculties to Imagine Cup; we believe that we will be able to convince the judges, and the public, that not only is Mental Health a significant problem to resolve in society, but that we are the best team to do it. Our adviser panel consists of three individuals; Dr. Rocky Law, Dr. Elsie Chien, Freddy Law, and Delton Li. These four heavy weight names are well respected in their fields, and have given Hollo many insights into operations, business strategy, NGO integration and Social Enterprise / Impact ideals. Dr. Rocky Law is a program director at HKU for Science Entrepreneurship, Director at Global Innotech development limited, Director at Praxis Green Consultation, Associate Director/Development Manager Technology Transfer Center HKUST. He has been mentoring us in Business Modelling and strategy. Vast experience in coaching startups in Hong Kong such as DJI, DataX, etc. Dr Elsie Chien is a Senior Lecturer from the Department of Social Work and Social Administration at HKU. With experience in the management of social enterprises and NGOs, Elsie has been able to give us insight into how to manage relations with NGOs and counselors as well. As a registered social worker with years of clinical experience, her insights have been critical to our success and network. Freddy Law is a serial Social Entrepreneur and a Director in Education for Good, with experience in startup culture and social innovation/enterprise in Hong Kong. Having many connections to many different incubators and important figure heads in the startup circle in Hong Kong and NGOs, Freddy lends us insight into how we can become a more socially impacting business and how we might integrate with the existing social enterprise climate in Hong Kong. Delton Li is a professional counsellor and mindful soul, turned to corporate HR for New World Development. His networking skills and background knowledge and volunteer work in counselling has proven immensely beneficial to the team's early traction with our NGO partners.
