Manage episode 298290287 series 2831511
Alisha Zhang, founder of Accio Homes. She wants to change people’s perception of tech products, and make smart homes ubiquitous to all. When Alisha was shopping for smart products for her own home, she spotted several pain points from the brands on the market at the time. Many had a complex, intimidating set up process, with short life spans and were in fact, pretty ugly! She decided to address these pain points by creating smart home brand Accio Homes. Accio’s beautiful smart lights do not compromise design for tech, are simple to set up (not just for the Techies!) and are built to last.
Alisha believes the future of home space is about automating and simplifying people’s busy lives. Accio’s mission is to create smart products that are beautiful, sustainable and accessible to everyone.
