On fire: Bend smart candle startup LuDela selected for Techstars

In the world of startup accelerators, there are two juggernauts: Y Combinator and Techstars. So I’m always happy to hear when a local company makes it into one of those programs. Especially when it’s the original Techstars in Boulder, which — at least in my mind — carries with it an additional prestige. And that’s where Bend startup LuDela will be spending a three-month stint.

What’s LuDela do? They make smart candles. That use real flame. And they donate a portion of their sales to meaningful causes.

LuDela is like a light switch for natural real flame candlelight. Now you can create the perfect ambiance for any occasion with the touch of a button and extinguish all your candles instantly as well.

Relax and enjoy increased peace of mind with LuDela’s advanced safety features. LuDela’s Tilt-Extinguish extinguishes the flame on accidental falls while Timer Extinguish blows out your candles when you tell them to.
