Why did we decide to target our product towards diabetic people?
The number of diabetic people in the UK is constantly rising. According to BBC News, Health experts are warning that one in 10 adults in the UK will be at risk of developing diabetes by 2035. This data provide a very frightening warning. Therefore, we thought that it is a good idea to develop something unique and helpful for diabetic people. Deadline.live wants to support these people in everyday actions to make them feel safer and happier.
Another reason why diabetes is so important for us is the fact that the co-founder of Deadline.live is diabetic, he knows the struggle and how life can be hard especially when he is on his own. He was diagnosed with type 1 Diabetes at the age of 13. It immediately changed his whole life. Every day he needs to monitor his sugar level and undertake the necessary action as a response to the result. If the sugar level is too low it is possible for him to lose consciousness or worse. He has realised that there is a need among people that suffer from diabetes to make them feel safer. As the idea of living on his own or travelling without anyone scared him. He didn’t want to feel like this and he didn’t want other people to feel the same.
Leave any comments or questions that you may have in the section below. We are always open to any suggestions you have. We are constantly improving our product, therefore, we really want to know all your needs and desires.
On the 4th of May last year we have won a Social Impact Price at the Sussex Innovation Centre. It helped us to gain funds and mentorship to develop our idea further. We kept ourselves very busy and still, there are so many more things to come in your way. We’re so excited to share with you what the future holds for Deadline.live.
But firstly, let’s discuss what Deadline.live did so far.
In the last year Deadline.live has been focusing on releasing the product and raising awareness of its brand.
The Deadline.live app was successfully released on the Google Play store available for all Android users. The app received very positive feedback during user testing. As our target market involves people of all ages, a UI designer was contracted to make the app as intuitive as possible. The design changes were implemented successfully and were received very well.
Our social media is also building via blog, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Our aim is to build a community around our product so this is an important task for us.
We’ve presented our product to various investors and partners. (More about that later on in the year.)
Our main focus now is finishing and finalising something very exciting that we can’t still share with you. But we will when it will be ready for you. We promise it is worth the wait and we believe that it will make Deadline.live app even better product than it already is.
In this blog post, we want to share with you how important it is to be supportive of others. We live in a fast-paced world where we need to say and do things automatically without even having enough time to think about it. We are trying to do as much as we can and sometimes in all of this we forget about people around us.
We’ve created a virtual world for ourselves and we forgot about what is really important in life. Our family and friends and their health should be a priority for us.
The idea for Deadline.live is to use new technologies and keep people closer together and not apart. We want to use the technology we love so much and use every day for a good cause. We don’t always have time to visit people close to our heart. We might have someone in a family that suffers from diabetes. They can be in danger especially when they are alone.
For us other humans wellbeing is very important. We want to emphasise it here. We are working very hard to create something that can help you and us ‘start living instead of worrying’.
It is very important to know your health. Deadline.live won’t tell you and your family and friends if you are healthy but it will tell them you are doing well and there is nothing to worry about. But at the same time, we want to create a community for you where you will be able to share your health journeys. We believe in the power of community and belonging. We don’t want you to be along with your illness.
Deadline.live co-founder is Polish. She moved to England when she was 19 years old. Her family and friends are still in Poland. She had to create her own safe place here in the UK. It is not always easy especially when you are alone. She understands and knows how being connected with others is very important. Thanks to Deadline.live her mum even though she lives far away is able to monitor her. It provides them with comfort and safety.
The priority for Deadline.live is to keep people connected.
It doesn’t matter what is your illness. Deadline.live is here for you.
