OneRemission is a company headquartered in New York but with the team members across 4 continents. It aims at making the lives of cancer survivors, fighters, and supporters easier, safer, and more enjoyable.
What Is OneRemission?
OneRemission was launched with the aim to help cancer survivors, fighters, and supporters learn more about cancer and post-cancer health care. It is one of the major apps in the field of Integrative Oncology, which encompasses post-cancer nutrition, exercise, sleep, and stress management practices. For the OneRemission team, a user’s physical, psychological, and emotional well-being is the highest priority.
How OneRemission Came to Be?
OneRemission, Inc. has mounted an immense challenge for themselves: to launch a company with the needs and interests of cancer survivors in mind, which would let them not feel lost after leaving the hospital.
They successfully beat it off, and today, they challenge others.
“Are you ready to join our team to disrupt the big pharma industry by making a new norm when every cancer survivor will have only One Remission?”
What Makes OneRemission Special?
Providing Valuable Knowledge
The app features a comprehensive knowledge base of diets, exercises, and post-cancer practices. It is curated by Integrative Medicine experts, whose goal is to let one live a safe and enjoyable life. For instance, a user can search for the information on cancer-related risks and benefits of a certain food product.
Providing a Sense of Confidence
The app helps patients who have recently left the hospital become self-sufficient and manage their lives by themselves, knowing that they do everything right without a constant need to consult a practitioner.
Providing Urgent Help
If there is a question that requires urgent help of a doctor, the app enables a user to consult with an online oncologist 24/7. Surely, it cannot substitute actual medical help in emergency cases. While the app does not offer a diagnosis or medical prescriptions, it is a perfect solution for informational purposes.
When we started our partnership, we had two major objectives: to upgrade BotPress and refactor the code. These measures were to optimize the performance of the app and to boost its productivity.
Two devoted software developers and one professional Project Manager from KeenEthics were glad to help OneRemission pursue their great goal.
Currently, the application has been developed only for the iOS platform.
Keenethics delivers the required tasks within the time frame and at high quality. Their expertise in software development and their dedication to our company has helped WorldLabs launch a fully functional product. Keenethics’ cost-effective and hands-on approach was an integral part of our early growth.
It helps people find partners, investors, or collaborators from all around the world. Entrepreneurs showcase their ideas and upload video pitches for them. They connect with other innovators and join various thematic groups. By expanding their network, they find partners and supporters and start developing their projects.
WorldLabs for organizations:
Some organizations may be looking for unique business ideas to work with. WorldLabs helps them plan, launch, manage and promote contests for the initiative they will support. It also enables employers to look for exceptional and yet undiscovered talents.
WorldLabs for society:
WorldLabs inspires the advancement of local and global business communities. It fosters collaboration because collaboration is the key to success and global progress. Here, people share their insights and resources.
Their mission is “to break down barriers to societal and technological progress.” They strive to give startuppers and business owners the power to elevate their ideas.
By the way, “Elevating Ideas” is an annual event for entrepreneurs, which takes place every November in London. KeenEthics is proud to have been a part of this conference in 2018.

Challenges & Solutions
When we first started working on the project, it was already in progress. The existing design had to be changed entirely. Stripe and sign-up via social media had not been implemented either. The code needed a great deal of improvement. In less than two months, we prepared the app for release.
Along with minor technical and organizational difficulties, there was one major challenge: WordLabs wanted to be different.
We made a lot of advancements to help them be unique. Yet, there is one feature we are proud of the most.
The platform lets organizations launch, promote and manage their own contests. They can appoint external judges to review the ideas and projects of applicants. In this way, competitions are open and fair, each person has an equal chance to prosper, and the hosting company starts working with the most deserving people.
As a result of the fruitful cooperation with the WorldLabs team, we developed a powerful one-of-a-kind social media platform. It is focused on business cooperation for start-ups and fledgling businesses. It fosters the exchange and elevation of ideas.
The project is long-lasting, so about ten expert full-stack developers and QA specialists have been working on it. The team is managed by a proficient Project Manager. UI/UX design is conducted on the client’s part.
We have developed both back-end and front-end of this web platform with the use of MongoDB, React, and Meteor.
We have been working on this online startup incubator for over two years already. The approach to the development process has changed a few times. Yet, we have successfully adapted the Kanban methodology to our needs.
What Makes WorldLabs Special?
WorldLabs is not a typical online business incubator. It does not help every start-up grow. Instead, it supports start-ups and entrepreneurs with unique and innovative ideas.
The WorldLabs community is diverse. It unites people from all parts of the world and different professional spheres. There are business owners, social activists, students, and educators. There are large corporations and small start-ups. WorldLabs does not limit the opportunities but gives everyone a chance to thrive.
The business incubation process is not typical either. Usually, it involves four stages:
1. ideating 2. verifying 3. searching for funding 4. entering the market
WorldLabs describes its business incubation process differently and more comprehensively.
