More about the Presenters

TosTis (http://www.tostis.com)

The site is about helping people to share/borrow/rent their books, movies and video games with each other.

Project Toe (http://www.projecttoe.com)

An iPhone app that helps those with self-harming issues. When you have the urge to self-harm, you tap Toe. When you want to help others get through an urge, you create a Help Schedule. If someone taps Toe and it's within your schedule, you'll get a Push Notification to chat with that person. Our vision is to empower average people to help one another. We think that we can disrupt the mental health industry by allowing people to use their past experience to help those who are currently going through it (depression, tragedy, addictions, etc). We call it "Social Therapy". We have 2500 monthly active members and slowly growing!
