We are Rekammend
At Rekammend we are unafraid to challenge the status quo. We know that each person has their own unique story to tell and are motivated to provide them with the platform to do so.
Our team has worked closely with people with speech and language disorders and their entire care circle in order to develop our platform. Through these interactions, we’ve developed a deep understanding of your needs and kept them top of mind while developing Reka. At Rekammend we are taking steps to ensure we are increasing your social health, comfort, and level of participation in the daily activities that are most important to you.
Rekammend was founded by Abi and Hannah while completing their degrees in Systems Design Engineering at the University of Waterloo. The two set out on a mission to contribute to a more inclusive community and world. They’ve heard countless frustrations from children and adults who are unable to express themselves through speech, and have watched as their care circles play the role of technical programmers while trying to customize the experience of communication apps. Abi and Hannah envisioned an improved experience for everyone involved.
Meet our team
CEO & Co-Founder
Communication is an essential way to learn about each other. We’ve listened carefully to the biggest pains our users face and are tackling them head on.
UI Developer Intern
Communication is a medium through which individuals can express their opinions and understand each other irrespective of their beliefs or values. It is a simple task of relaying information between two or more people or communities.
CTO & Co-Founder
We've seen firsthand how much of a role communication can play in achieving social-happiness. Ensuring that you have all the tools to break down the communication barriers that you face is what drives us forward!
To me, communication is as much about expression as it is about listening. Communication serves as the basis of all understanding; it's a unique tool that helps us connect with one another.
Research & Development Intern
Communication leads to community - it’s key to forming meaningful relationships and achieving personal success.
Machine Learning Intern
Without communication we would be no different than a farm cucumber; it is the very core of our society and what makes us human.
