At Biel Glasses, we aim to offer assistive technologies for visually impaired people in order to improve their mobility and personal autonomy. This is possible thanks to our advanced technology that combines 3D vision, AI and mixed reality.
Biel, the son of the two founders of BIEL GLASSES, was born with a disease that causes Low vision (LV). The project started in 2015, when Jaume and Constanza, Biel’s parents, could not find a suitable solution for their son’s vision and consequent mobility problems. Jaume is an electronic engineer and Constanza is a general medicine specialist. Together, they were the perfect team to start the project. Eulàlia, a renowned optician specialised in LV, joined soon after, providing them with all the necessary knowledge from the optical field. Today our company is made up of a cross-disciplinary team of professionals with significant experience in the optical, medical and technological fields. Since its foundation, we have raised more than 450.000 €from R&I, and 250.000 € from private funding. We have been awarded with several start-up and technology related prizes, such as the “Tech for Good” international award at GITEX Technology Week in Dubai, which recognised us as the start-up with the most significant achievement of the last 12 months in developing and implementing technological solutions for social, cultural and/or environmental issues.
