Who is Beatrice?
Our name is a reference to Beatrice Portinari: the woman often cited as the spark that ignited the Renaissance movement.
Beatrice’s legendary beauty, grace, and wit are said to have influenced Dante Alighieri’s infamous epic poem, The Divine Comedy. In the book, a fictionalized version of Beatrice serves as a wise and knowledgeable guide to the underworld and afterlife.
Like Dante’s muse, we aim to spark a movement to a new era: bringing emerging ideas to the forefront, and joining forces with scientists, therapists, and industry leaders to promote the shared cause of improving mind and body wellbeing.
