Jari Hazelebach

CEO & Cofounder | Speaksee | Netherlands

Jari, CEO and cofounder of Speaksee, was inspired by both of his parents being deaf. During family gatherings, he struggled seeing how they were excluded . In response, Speaksee developed the world’s first device which is able to accurately live caption group conversations. Since launching last year, Speaksee has positively impacted thousands of deaf and hard-of-hearing people.

Jari was previously recognised as Forbes30U30 Social Entrepreneur, won the Philips Innovation Award and was awarded the Best Pitch of the Season in national television show RTL Z in Zaken.
