Quell: 2 Students Win Y Combinator Place 3 Weeks After Launching Game Startup

by businessinsider.com posted 3weeks ago 67 views
After just three weeks of work on their startup, two students on the innovation design engineering course at London's Royal College of Art won a place on Y Combinator's prestigious accelerator program. Their fitness gaming startup, Quell, is built around a low-cost wearable made of smart resistance bands that tracks users' combat-style workouts as they fight through a fantasy game on their phone or laptop. Quell has raised $150,000 in investment from Y Combinator, as well as funding from a series of angel investors, including Twitch's Kevin Lin and AngelList cofounder Naval Ravikant.
