YEO Messaging

Status: Extended

Mar 24th 2021 - May 7th 2021

YEO (Your Eye Only) Messaging is a next-generation communication platform that connects business with people. The company asserts that its patented continuous facial recognition requires users' ID as an authentication key to display content, making it impossible for someone else to read a user's messages. The portal also doesn't allow others to screenshot, copy, save or forward content unless allowed by the user. YEO Messaging claims that its 'Geofencing' and 'Burn After Reading' features provide sender control even after content is sent guaranteeing delivery to the person rather than just the device. YEO was selected as one of eight companies worldwide for CyLon London’s Cohort 10 accelerator in the autumn of 2019 and has a valuation of £8.3 million when only considering issued shares. The company will use the investment to expand its team to accelerate the development of its desktop and enterprise solutions to drive revenues and further its partnership in the insurance and healthcare sectors.
