Doors Don't Understand People, But Now They Can.
When attending university, our founders, Josh and Sam, had many good friends with disabilities who regularly asked friends (and as a last resort, complete strangers) for help accessing buildings so they could get to class and work. Unfortunately, one of their friends had her leg shattered by an automatic accessible door. This incident sparked our journey to re-imagine how people get from point A to point B.
We believe technology should be friendly, adaptive, and serve people according to what they need in the moment. Portal Entryways enables all people to have the same level of independence and access to wherever they're going. Mark Weiser once said, "The best computer is a quiet, invisible servant." This is what we hope the essence of Portal to be.
Our team is breaking down challenging barriers, and is backed by the same people behind Airbnb, Stripe, Lockitron, and other industry innovators.
