Which problem are you trying to solve?

Hushtag's goal is to solve the most common problem of pet owners which is coping with the loss of a pet.

How are you going to solve the problem?

Hushtag is a mobile application that helps pet owners to realistically monitor the location of their lost pets through a
device attached in the pet's collar.

What is the impact of your project?

According to Kyon, there are over 10 million cases of lost pets across the world. Thus, hushtag will be catering a big
market once it will be launched.

How can the project be manufactured in the OpenLab?

Openlab would be a great help in assisting the fabrication of the components of the device and the collar as well.

Describe your project in detail

Hushtag is a mobile application that helps pet owners to realistically monitor the location of their lost pets through a
device attached in the pet's collar. The device will be in idle mode until you press the track button in the mobile
application. It is enclosed with a sealed case protecting it from water and dust.
Our target market are middle to high
income pet owners who always seek ways to ensure the location of their pets. Our revenues will be based on corporate
partnerships where in the customer will just have to pay for a 1-2 year subscription/plan of dog food or pet products
from our partner pet shops then the customer will get the tracking device for free. Also, we accept white labeling where
other companies can use our product with their own choice of brand, packaging and price.
Hushtag has won the Philippine
Startup Challenge - Internet of Things, the team competed with over 200+ startup entries across the Philippines. For
now, the team wants to step in with opportunities such us this to gain assistance and further develop their Minimum
Viable Product so that they can produce an efficient and convenient pet-tracker.

A great idea ... It is also possible to make an early warning feature if the animal moves away from a certain area of
​​space without being accompanied by it. This can facilitate the tracking and knowing its place
