The adventure begins in February 2016, with a blank sheet on the corner of the table of our kitchen ... Our kitchen ??
Yes, because we have been husband and wife for 22 years, as well as parents of 2 children ...
Fabienne has been a nurse specialized in early childhood for 8 years.
Sébastien was a graphic designer in print communication, and manager of home construction agency. Both in daily contact with families basis ...
The observation is simple: in a decade, in many cases, families have been transformed, weakened, leaving the door open to the stress of everyday life. Unfortunately, this stress is implicitly transmitted to children, and to the whole family.
We wanted to act. Propose something virtuous, global, that would make people happier.
Recreate the family bond, bring well-being to children, and restore confidence to dads, moms in their role as parents ...
We wanted to reinvent an innovative well-being moment, which has a real positive impact on the whole family!
Based on this observation, we invented a machine that creates a well-being atmosphere through music therapy, light therapy, aromatherapy, while preparing and distributing natural and organic wellness massage products in capsules.
Sébastien designed a first machine and a first MPV (minimum viable product) with the FabLab from Orléans.
Meeting families, parents, childminders enabled us to see if their was an interest in our project. It gave us new directions to make it evolve very quickly, with a new design.
In the same time, we were developing our mobile application for children growth monitoring, and family health monitoring, without ever substituting to any health record.
Our development went through the integration of the Lab'O (a digital incubator in Orleans) and The Technopole 45, in March 2016. This first support allowed us to make our concept progress, especially concerning the market study with potential future users.
What a wonderful adventure! What unforgettable encounters!
In August 2016, we have been allocated a French Tech Grant to continu developing our idea!
Together we did massage training on babies, in order to perfect our knowledge in parent / child relationships.
Our project was becoming obvious to us.
For the second time, we were selected to be part of the first startup acceleration program: S@x'O 45: 10 months of acceleration with 5 others startups!
In January 2017, we created Wisharings, primarily for the parent / child relationship, and the massage benefits on children.
Fromm March to December 2017, a long way of work set up: the study of our machine, the research of laboratories for our future natural and organic products, but also and foremost the financing search. What an adventure!
At the end of September 2017, we were applying to participate at the CES 2018 (Consumer Electronics Show) and in October we were selected to present our concept at the CES 2018 in Las Vegas.
What an incredible chance!
What a great evolution!
We decided to expand our family with the arrival of Pierrick and Manon in January 2018, to develop our mobile application faster, and to let everyone know about it!
Our presentation at the world innovation's biggest show has highlighted the interest generated around our concept. It also showed us everyone felt concerned about the well-being of their family ... So, we naturally decided to expand this innovative wellness experience, to the whole family : babies, children, teenagers, adults (couples or athletes) and seniors.
With this evolution, we also wanted to give our project an international dimension: Caressea became Wisharings, with a first machine, our new baby, Lussya® One!
