Arab Startup Competition Twelfth Edition 2019: Startups Track - Semi-finalist

Description

YACOB enables parents, students, and schools to manage the nutritional intake of students using the latest technologies in behavioral economics, gaming technology, and artificial intelligence. We have built an interactive and intuitive platform that keeps track of students’ nutrition and wellbeing data. The platform does so by analyzing the daily school food consumption of students in order to measure, plan, manage and report on the health of children. The software has been deployed across 50 schools and their multiple canteens; serving 8,000 parents with over 10,000 students consuming circa 10,000 meals per day. YACOB has made strategic partnerships with educational institutions and governmental bodies in the UAE with plans for expansion into the wider MENA region.
