UBC-affiliated Neurio: Home Intelligence, formerly Energy Aware, has announced $1.5 million in seed funding from BDC Venture Capital. Neurio makes homes ‘smarter’ by using a Wi-Fi enabled sensor to detect and analyze the amount of power household appliances use. Neurio takes the ‘smart home’ concept one step further and integrates the data with a variety of apps, allowing users to control and receive notifications from their appliances through a smartphone.

Neurio has connected with entrepreneurship@UBC’s Mentor Network, receiving mentorship on their Kickstarter campaign and company strategy. Get involved with our Mentor Network by signing up for Open Office today!
