Made at the University of Toronto, Haven grows rapidly and spreads its revolutionary campus safety app with students, parents, and allies across Canada.
TORONTO, November 10, 2021 — Haven, the leading campus safety app company started at the University of Toronto, thanks the University of Toronto for its constant support and resources.
"We could not have built Haven without the aid provided by amazing people at the University of Toronto" says Haven Co-Founder and CEO Nelson Lee.
Haven has been working for the past 8 months to create an app that helps improve campus safety. Haven was created after co-founders Nelson Lee and Ethan Hugh learned about the prevalence of sexual assaults and harassment at universities across Ontario in August 2020.
In March 2021, Haven was accepted by the University of Toronto's incubator, the Hatchery, to join their NEST 2021 Summer Program, which provided connections, mentors, and resources to help Haven succeed in its mission.
Haven released its app, ‘Haven – Safety Locator & Alert’, on the App and Google Play Store in September 2021. The Haven app can download here: bit.ly/DownloadHaven.
