"During my Masters Degree in Oslo, I did a research on behavioural change in energy use. Results showed that almost none of the solutions motivated people to change their behaviour. This encouraged me to wonder what could we do differently. This ambition
gave the start to the company which was founded in 2014 as part of Rockstart Smart Energy Accelerator. What makes this company exceptional? As a social enterprise, we measure our success by more than our balance sheet. We are on
the mission to create the future where kids and adults are more conscious about their actions, energy consumption and protective to nature.
As kids we are often told by parents to turn off the lights and tv, keep the door closed when the heater is on, and other things to save energy and thereby save money. Energy and climate issues are hard to grasp, even more so for kids. For that reason,
I believe that we need to start the change with children and the way we educate them. Only when kids learn to relate to these issues we can make a better future and long-lasting changes in taking care of our planet. And trust me,
the kids will teach the parents a thing or two in return.
We believe in playful learning and experiences as the best way to teach kids. For three years we have researched, developed, experimented and tried out. We are proud of the result. “Hyko” name comes from Inuit language and means “ice”. Hyko, the polar
bear is on the mission to save the North Pole. Hyko acts as your kids glowing companion while immersing them into the energy world through playful experiences in the app. Join us today!" Andriy, CEO and Founder
