Our story

We are a legal tech startup with a vision of providing help and access to justice for all social media users globally. We have harnessed AI and machine learning to be able to offer the best help and solutions to large audiences. Our service is fully scalable. The aim is to protect all social media users without compromising connectivity.

From our social psychological point of view, the best practise is not to just delete unwanted content online or use censorship just in case but to solve the conflicts between people. We believe that a new era is emerging on online platforms where all the social media users are protected and there is help available for everyone in case something bad happens.

We launched our service in Finland in May 2018 and have now opened also in Sweden. More openings to come soon, stay tuned…

SomeBuddy was established by three female founders in Helsinki in 2017. However the idea behind SomeBuddy goes back to 2015 when the founders Suvi, Minttu and Jenny put their heads together wanting to make a difference and create something world changing. The trio met during their studies in the University of Helsinki and have known each other for over a decade. All three have their backgrounds in social psychology but each of them add something unique to the mix as well. When combining their respective expertise SomeBuddy was born.
