The story of nuwa pen

Using pen in car

In 2019 Marc was dividing his time between studying for his graduate degree, working a part-time job and building startups with his friends.

He loves working with pen and paper because it helps him manifest his thoughts in the real world. But, because of his busy schedule, he had sticky notes at home, at work and at the startups. Looking around, Marc soon realized his colleagues had handwritten notes lying all over the place, intentionally jotting down their ideas onto any paper they could find. So he thought to himself, it must be because nobody has thought of making the pen remember our notes and to-do’s.

It all started with a core idea

From this core idea, developing a pen grew to more than just remembering what you had to do. Everything you ever put to paper with a pen would be saved, searchable and sharable. Marc has a notebook that he carries around with him wherever he goes. It’s meant for quick sketches, meeting notes, or creating diagrams. Often, he has to go through his notes to find the details of conversations with business partners from months ago. But to get there, he has to flip through all the pages and have a strong feeling of when the meeting was to find it quickly. With Nuwa Pen, Marc could type in the name of the company or the location, and the notes would display immediately.
