lodomo – at home on the internet

In a nutshell

lodomo is an app in the form of a digital house which, with the help of visualization and the integration of gamification, enables the use of the internet without previous barriers.

lodomo thus offers participation in digital, modern society for seniors who have not yet found access. To make it even easier to get started, we offer a complete package consisting of an app as well as an optional tablet and mobile internet.

Why all this?

Millions of seniors in Germany are still not using the internet.¹ Similarly, 8 million of the over-60s would like to be more online, but don't manage it or don't dare.² The corona pandemic has clearly demonstrated the social isolation in the group of non-digitized seniors. In addition, current internet structures are usually complicated and already require a high level of prior digital knowledge.

Our solution to this is lodomo, the home on the internet as a familiar and secure environment. There, digital content and functions are visualized with everyday objects. This requires no prior knowledge of the digital world thus making it easier to get started. The use of fun, informative and health-related content together with video telephony  creates digital participation.

Why we're unique

Other offers do completely without visualization and gamification. For the most part, they are content with enlarging and standardizing controls. This approach does not go far enough for us. We are therefore working with universities and game developers to provide a new solution that empowers the target group to acquire digital knowledge on their own.

lodomo makes using and navigating the app itself fun. This is especially ensured by the visualization and the integration of gamification. This playful approach does not frustrate users but motivates them.

Content and functions are continuously expanded and adapted by us, so the app always remains interesting.

For whom?

Our users are seniors who have had little or no Internet experience. This also includes people who occasionally use apps like WhatsApp, but still fear the size and complexity of the Internet. They are people who experience loneliness as well as isolation and feel cut off from society and family.

The team

Our vision is a society in which participation in the digital, modern world is possible for everyone.

We combine the right mix of entrepreneurial, technical and social know-how to make this vision a reality.
