There is an old expression that most of us are familiar with: “Necessity is the mother of invention.”
At MobileHelp, we often paraphrase that when we are describing the earliest days of our company: “(Grand) Mother was the necessity for invention.”
By way of explanation, we offer the following story. Our founder, Elias Janetis, was looking for a medical alert system to provide his grandmother with emergency help if she needed it. But his grandmother was a highly active woman, and often out of her home. To Elias’astonishment, there was no solution available in the marketplace that offered her mobility.
