Jonathan Elvidge, Director, Moodbeam, based at C4DI in Hull

Moodbeam is built on the unfortunate truth that whilst how we feel is so important to our wellbeing, it’s hard to capture, tough to talk about and often invisible.  Inspired by Christina a mum’s who’s desire was to know how her daughter was feeling when she wasn’t with her. Moodbeam was created with the ambition to transform the way the world sees mood, by making it easier to understand and talk about how we feel.

Jonathan helped Mum Christina; a working journalist to take her ideas and create the tech based solution. That day Moodbeam was born.
