Microsoft US Imagine Cup Winners!

Over the last two months, our team has been working tirelessly, meeting with users to further develop our technology. Our company has also undergone rebranding, and we are now Loro. Loro was inspired by the Spanish word for “parrot,” in spirit of the friendly, customizable, companion that is always at a user’s side!

Loro has done extremely well in several competitions. Loro won Third Place at the Microsoft Imagine Cup US National Finals in San Francisco. Our very own healthcare innovator, David Hojah exclaims, “Imagine Cup US 2018 empowers us in many ways, from software development to connecting with other entrepreneurs and mentors from all over USA. Microsoft has guided us through product design, projections, planning and potential partnerships. We are really amazed by their great support. We are enthusiastic for more at the Global Cup in Redmond, WA. Thank you Microsoft. Let’s imagine it and build it!”

Loro is headed to the Imagine Cup World Finals this July in Seattle at the Microsoft Headquarters. The top teams from nations all over the world will come together to showcase their best technology that will be used to improve the lives of others. The world will be watching.
