About Qian

I am currently working on an AI powered social platform offering personalised, flexible and rewarding pet perks and insurance to keep your pets healthy, happy and protected.

- Pet management: you have everything saved for your pet, breed, age, insurance details, health records (including vaccinations, clinical records from vets, allergies etc), current food, favourite walking places, favourite pet shops etc. --> We will use pet facial recognition to set up a digital ID for your pet and build a risk profile with health tips so you can take better care of your pets, remind you to book annual health check and flea treatments. We will also provide personalised insurance according to your pet's details and offer various perks so you can have cashbacks to save on your annual pet bills.

- Social: I would like to build a community so pet parents can also interact with each other. For example, I can share security alerts with other pet parents in my region if I see any warning news. If I take my dog for a walk in a park, I can also see who else is in the park and make new friends. If I am on holiday, instead of relying on pet sitters, I can ask another Labrador parent to look after my lab whom I would have met, so I can share my dog's details (from pet management like allergies) with people. If my cat has gone missing, I can send an "SOS" to other pet parents in my area etc. If anyone finds a pet, they can also upload the picture so our system can locate the owner immediately using pet facial recognition technology. If anyone has any financial difficulty paying the vet bill, we can also arrange donations within the community.

I am currently speaking to a few insurers to work on the product and looking for a technical co-founder to build the mvp.
