Our Story

Today, blind and visually impaired people can only walk to 3-5 places on their own. Learning how to go to new places requires many hours of one-to-one training. NaviBlind has set out to change this. Using the latest technologies, we have found that it is possible to help blind people navigate to as many places as they like, even in busy urban environments. With you onboard, we would be poised to scale the business and deliver the robust navigation service that blind and visually impaired people have been waiting for.
