Haven incorporated federally as Haven Safe Technology Corporation and will do business as Haven and Haven Safe.
TORONTO, August 1, 2021 — Haven, a mobile safety app company created by two University of Toronto students who believe returning to a pre-COVID world does not mean returning to pre-COVID dangers, today announced that it has federally incorporated in Canada under the name Haven Safe Technology Corporation. The Haven Safe Technology Corporation will conduct business under the names Haven and Haven Safe.
"We are thrilled to share that we are now federally incorporated. We're moving super fast as we ready for our launch in September 2021" says Haven co-founder Nelson Lee.
Haven has been working for the past 5 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 plans on releasing its app on the App and Google Play Store in September 2021.
