We are developing breakthrough consumer products enabling you to know what is in your food. We believe meal time should be about the enjoyment of your food and your company, and not the worry about the potential repercussions of eating something unknown. We exist for you to eat with confidence and stay healthy! For us, it's personal. We're on a mission to change the dining experience, forever.
A huge part of our lives center around food and mealtime, and at Nima, we believe food and identity are intertwined. However, we don’t know what’s in our food. Our founders long struggled with food allergies and sensitivities and were tired of always getting sick and worrying if food was safe to eat. After meeting at MIT, they built a technology company to alleviate the stress around hidden food ingredients, deliver social freedom and make mealtime enjoyable again. We’re backed by the most prestigious hardware VCs, including Upfront Ventures, SoftTech VC, SK Ventures, Mitch Kapor and Lemnos Labs.
Our first product is Nima, a discreet and portable sensor that allows consumers to test their food for gluten anywhere, anytime. Nima will offer a community experience with the ability to share food test results with other users via a connected app. Our technology takes a whole new approach to food testing through an innovative blend of chemistry and engineering. Our innovation has applications beyond food sensitivities, with the potential to assist laboratory testing across industries. Nima was named winner of TechCrunch Hardware Battlefield CES 2016 and one of TIME magazine’s “Best Inventions of 2015.” – less
