Go to Market Plan

Here is our plan to bring Calmpanions to market:

Our Story

Calmpanions weres born after the Holisec Group co-founder Stephanie Frank had experienced years of end-of-life caretaking for her mother and husband at the same time, and the resulting caregiver burnout. 

It was, naturally, a stressful, anxious and often lonely time.  One thing that gave her comfort was a simple, soft, cuddly companion.

With her personal familiarity – and her deep professional experience as a behavioral expert – Stephanie recognized a need and an opportunity to solve it:

“Imagine,” she thought, “if this toy could also talk!”



What if it could be more than just soft on the outside — but also smart on the inside?

Able to actually help calm and comfort people, and interact based on their unique needs and personalities.

They would be more than companions. They would be Calmpanions.

That would surely help anybody and everybody who was suffering from anxiety, worry, fear and loneliness.
