LENA is a family platform that helps parents get great inspirations and ideas that suits their interests and needs. With the help of Artificial Intelligence LENA helps you to quickly find a suitable activity.

LENA finds suitable excursion destinations in seconds with the help of machine learning. You no longer spend valuable time searching and filtering - just like on other old-fashioned web portals. With LENA you can create bookmark lists to remember destinations for later. LENA also offers you extensive filter options, in case you would like to browse for yourself. In addition, you also have the possibility of networking with family and friends or you can easily follow people with interesting contributions. And LENA is only just beginning - we are currently working on new, great features. You may already be curious.
How did you both, you and Marie and Therese, come up with the idea of developing LENA?
I've spent the last 20 years in IT, including the last 10 years in the computer games industry. When I became a father a few years ago, I was very surprised how little the potential of technology and gamification in the leisure activities of families is used. After wasting hours on Google and web portals looking for family activities, I simply had to find a solution. My time was just too precious to spend it searching around.
The idea started small. LENA was originally created in the circle of my family. Especially my wife Marie-Therese played a major role in helping to shape LENA and, despite our three children, is actively involved every day. In the course of the many discussions in our network, we quickly found a lot of support. In principle, every mother and father we talked to has confirmed our problem-solving skills and many are now actively supporting LENA. Be it by contributing excursion destinations or with their expert knowledge in various fields. That's how we have become a network organization over the months. And LENA has evolved over the past 12 months into the product that it is now. However, LENA's web app is only at the beginning of development and we are constantly expanding the range and functionality.
As I said, we are only at the beginning of our journey, but already this fall we will start a fantastic, innovative feature. But we do not want to reveal what it is.
So the next time you're looking for family activity inspirations, LENA has the answer.
