Gaurav Khanna recommended MOTI where Kayla is Co-Founder

I believe that MOTI is a very exciting product -- it is based on a simple yet powerful idea that simple cues can change important habits and improve your life. I don't believe there is any other product that can match this -- it will not just have "users" but "fans" who engage with MOTI very actively. I am looking forward to seeing all the wonderful things this product can do and where the company can go.

Vivian Rosenthal Co-Founder at Snaps recommended MOTI where Kayla is Co-Founder

My name is Vivian Rosenthal, and I am the founder-in-residence at Google's 30 Weeks, a new entrepreneurship program for designers to build startups. Over the past five months, I have been thoroughly impressed by MOTI's founder, Kayla Matheus. She has gone from early problem definition, creating the first MVPs, and now rallying a substantial team with speed and determination. Kayla has a sharp mind, passionate work ethic, and high emotional intelligence. With her background in both design and engineering, she has the creativity and technical smarts to lead a diverse team and create a product that rises above the noise. In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend the MOTI team for acceptance. The Qualcomm Robotics Accelerator has the chance to work with an impressive group of individuals, an exciting product that can impact many lives, and female founders who are furthering the role of women in technology.
