I started having period pains 3 years ago and after graduating and starting work I still had these pains. I didn't want a life where my body was not supporting me. I was dependent on prescribed painkillers every cycle ( every 29 days) and I didn't want to accept this as my life. I spent a lot of my time researching ways to get rid of period pain.  What I found was by understanding the root cause, I could use food, exercise and my lifestyle to get rid of this pain. This research enabled me to bio-hack my body and eliminate my period pain. I shared this with all my friends and they wanted bite-size information rather than me recommending books and research. This is how CycleSync was born.

My struggle is not unique. 9 out of 10 women report having period pain. This pain is an obstacle, negatively impacting the ability to get things done and thrive. CycleSync’s platform will support women in thriving by giving personalised nutrition, exercise and lifestyle recommendations to eliminate menstrual cycle-related symptoms. There is so much to learn about the menstrual and I am excited because I feel pulled with this mission of making sure that women can leverage their cycle.

Social contracting platform with AI-assisted discovery and use of people’s skills. People often use social connections to find friends with a particular skill who could help achieve a certain immediate task (be it finding a partner for a tennis game, a recommendation for a babysitter, or a car mechanic prior to buying a used car). But finding the right person’s skill for a specific task amongst your social connections is tedious, and carries communication burden. Our platform allows to match find skilled people to tasks based on your social connections and geolocation. If you don't know who to ask - ask your phone, and it'll offer best available connections for a given task. Company founded in Nov 2017, and has recently released a core version 1 on both Android and iOS platforms.
