About

MinQi is a digital platform that helps employees manage their well-being at work. This is achieved by proprietary video & audio content created by the MinQi team. The content is divided into bite-sized breaks that are categorized for specific needs such as back pain, stress-relief, anxiety and all the other usual suspects of office work.

Along with the MinQi breaks, the platform is enriched by MinQi Journeys, which are video series that focus on certain topics of self-improvement, weekly live sessions with wellness instructors, and personalized self-improvement statistics for each individual user.

MinQi’s goal is to provide each firm it partners with a new way to provide benefits to their employees, keep them energized, social and happy in the workplace, no matter if they are in the office or working remotely.

Exelerate stood out, their focus on long-term goals and novel ideas made them the perfect partner. I believe that our continued partnership will grow MinQi into a leader in the wellness and employee benefits industry.

Involvement

Strategy

Exelerate has been supporting MinQi from the very beginning and was fully incorporated into the entire process. It includes defining, analysing the business strategy and raising capital on the one hand, and defining software architecture and cloud infrastructure on the other.

Design

The phase 1 started with research and design of the web app as well as the slack app. Our UI/UX team was working full-time, hand in hand with the product owner to turn the idea into a visualisation and reach the end goal.

Development

After setting up the infrastructure, we started building the slack application using the Slack API, a web application using the NextJs framework as well as a backend service using NodeJs with Typescript. The architecture is serverless, built on top of GCP and it’s ideal for early stage startups because it allows us to pay as we grow and gives us the ability to scale infinitely.
