Millo Appliances is a foodtech company on a mission to inspire the global community
to adopt a healthier and more sustainable diet by developing innovative solutions for
simple, enjoyable food preparation.
Founded in 2015, the company created the Millo blender, a smart, simple, and silent
device. Millo is the blender reimagined and reinvented as a smart gadget for our busy
Inspired by minimalist design and crafted with materials of the highest quality, Millo
seamlessly blends into any environment, fitting in with other smart devices. Its
unparalleled technology makes it three times quieter than the average blender and
allows it to do things that other appliances cant.
Millo doesnt need any buttons – it can be controlled from anywhere on its 360-degree,
touch-sensitive surface, as well as via its own smartphone app. It is cordless, fully
portable, and can make up to 10 smoothies on the go with just one charge.
Millo is powered by a brushless engine with an integrated magnetic coupling. This
innovative technology, called AirDrive, was developed and patented by Millos
Founder and CEO Ruslanas Trakselis, who was inspired to create it after seeing his
daughter play with a toy with two dancers that were spun magnetically.
Ruslanas, an avid athlete who does marathon and triathlon training in the early
morning, decided to reinvent the blender after becoming frustrated by the mess and
noise caused by making his post-workout smoothie with a regular blender, which often
woke up his family.
Millo Appliances has raised a total of 1.5 million in investment. Its Kickstarter
campaign in 2017 raised over 100,000 and saw over 300 reservations for Millo in
less than 30 days.
