OUR TEAM ARE DEDICATED PROFESSIONALS.
AND DEDICATED PARENTS.
After Sten Kirkbak lost his 3-year old son Filip for thirty minutes, it inspired the idea for ‘FiLIP’: a new type of device to keep parents and their young children connected. But to create a piece of technology that has never existed before, Sten needed a group of professional engineers, designers and executives to help make FiLIP a reality.
Everyone on the team is at the top of their field, but at the end of the day, their kids are the boss.
