The Problem:

Young people do not feel as safe as they should when enjoying nights out.

What does WYA do?

WYA uses Bluetooth beacons to allow you to find friends, even when you are offline. Search for them on a map or send them an SOS if needed.

How does it work?

Our Bluetooth beacons form a mesh network across the club. By combining this network with floor plans provided by the venue, WYA can create highly accurate maps of different event venues.

Why does WYA matter?

WYA aims to do two things. We want to make sure people stay safe, and avoid dangerous situations at events and in nightclubs. And we want people to have fun – to avoid people spending nights out anxiously looking for friends when they should be spending time with them.
