Spin-off yuna at the IAD
Based on a thesis at the IAD the former students of the TU Darmstadt Vitalij Hilsendeger, Waldemar Rupps and Felix Beinenz founded the start-up “Yuna”. The company develops and sells an app for tablet computers which makes the Internet accessible to older people. The design is modified on the basis of their own studies. The fully functional app is designed to make communicating with friends and relatives, enjoying a variety of entertainment services and online shopping as easy as possible for the elderly. The spin-off is supported by an EXIST start-up grant from the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy and is affiliated to the IAD.
