VANCOUVER GETS US!
After three intense months of daily instruction in the LOI (League of Innovators) start-up incubator, we had the opportunity to pitch Nyoka to the Vancouver community. Paige and Yamila absolutely crushed their 90-second pitch at the Founder Showcase. We’re not just saying this, the crowd voted Nyoka for ‘People’s Choice’, the only designation of the evening. THANK YOU so much to everyone who voted #lightbynyoka for People’s Choice! This kind of response and validation get’s us so excited. Although there are still many, many, many! things to figure out, we are getting closer than ever to launching the Light Wand. (check out the video of our Light Wand Demo and presentation in our recent instagram post)!
The biggest thing we gained from this program is the incredible network LOI has built. We will continue to be supported by LOI in our next steps, and continue to be inspired, challenged, and supported by our peers in Cohort 3. Check out the League of Innovators website to be seriously inspired by what Youth Entrepreneurs are doing in Canada.

Though it was incredibly exciting, we can’t believe that League of Innovators is over! The past three months have been intense - daily Zoom meetings, AMA’s with Canada’s best startup mentors, working through worksheets, modules, financials, all on top of our continued product development.
This December is exciting - we are sending out the first Light Wands for testing to the first batch of Light Wand Guardians, and are working on some behind the scenes advancements that we will be able to share with you soon!
