Mark Altosaar is the co-founder of LUL.IO, a startup that creates fun apps for students that help schools detect suicide risk. Their mission is to empathetically meet students where they are and radically change how mental health is seen and assessed.

Prior to starting LUL.IO, Mark was a Manager in the Product Research Center at Philips Electronics in Hong Kong, where he represented the voice of the consumer throughout the product development cycle. He evolved project team mindsets from a focus on technology to a focus on consumers, user experience and market needs.

Before coming to Hong Kong, Mark was a Product Manager and User Experience Specialist at one of Canada’s top technology companies and led the development vision, UX research plan and marketing strategy for software used by 30 million people and launched a global digital content search and community website used by millions worldwide. As a result of his focus on UX, the website has received many international accolades. Mark was also a key contributor on a patent for remote collaboration using touch devices and a design patent for a touch user interface.
