Our vision 

The pet and pet care ecosystem is old and fragmented. Incumbents are detached from the changing emotional needs of pet owners, the customer experience/technology bar is low and companies are suffering from innovator's dilemma. The global market for pets is growing but the ‘Pet-Tech/Vet-Tech’ market is in its infancy. We have the multi-billion pound opportunity to use learnings from other markets to build the new model for a tech-enabled pet ecosystem.
