NILUK began out of a simple discovery. Online social media platforms which were made to make us feel more connected, are actually creating a counter movement which negatively impact some of the deepest foundations of our mental health.

During the past decade, people began spending more and more time alone and behind a screen. At the same time, something else began to happen amongst us… burnout, stress, and weakened immunity, became more and more of a frequent topic amongst young adults who felt the growing societal pressure that was ever visible within this new online world.

These correlating imbalances are also all symptoms of a new scientifically-diagnosed epidemic—loneliness—which crosses multiple generational barriers and has only just begun. These studies are only the beginning; we have just started the journey uncovering the truth behind social isolation and the impact on our health. We believe the answer is simple.

We are proud to be part of the VU StartHub, to connect with dozens of mentors, experts and startup enthusiasts in order to grow our social impact in 2021. The pandemic has shown the ever growing importance of real social contact. We want to facilitate that, scale it & make it accessible for all young adults across Europe. We believe that the VU Startup Hub has all the tools, experts research & funding possibilities we need, in oder to get there.

Get offline and back to the real world. The NILUK team is determined to find a better, simpler, solution. While we still believe in the power of technology to help us navigate beyond our physical boundaries. The app is engineered to keep you in this alternate universe as short as possible, in contrast to other networks which are designed to keep us addicted and on our phones. This unique platform key features includes NO algorithms but a pre-filter to find new connections based on your common interests/proximity and a lightweight UX to connect you to new members of your local community whether you are at home or in a new country. So everyone can reclaim their right to experience a feeling of belonging no matter where they are in the world.

Let us build new experiences, together. Come meet us at www.niluk.app
