The Pathlight Challenge

Our innovation project with Valley Venture Mentors

Influencing Innovation

Pathlight and Valley Venture Mentors have teamed up to provide two startups with everything they need in order to help them develop accessible technology to help individuals with disabilities.

Lili Dwight, founder of Galactic Smarties, aims to develop a new type of fire alarm system that can not only tell the user where a fire is, but also the best route to take to exit the premises.

Chris Landry, co-founder of Habit Stackr, is looking to create an app designed to help people follow-through with daily health and wellness routines by focusing their willpower.

Both startups will have access to Valley Venture Mentor's funding as well as access to Pathlight's community of caregivers, families and individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities.

Paul Silva on partnering with Pathlight

Paul Silva, Co-Founder of Valley Venture Mentors, addressed the crowd at the 2017 Accelerator Awards to celebrate our partnership and the innovation we are cultivating for people with autism or intellectual disabilities. His enthusiasm for the Pathlight Challenge is one of the many reasons we're happy to offer our community's insight to these visionaries.
