Love your neighbour
Love is all you need
A movement begins…

Our Story

Every great invention begins with a dreamer. Someone who sees the world a little bit differently, with the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. For Mazu, that dreamer is Janice Taylor.

It's time we use technology to encourage positive action and inspire a love of family.

Janice Taylor

CEO and Founder of Mazu

Janice Taylor is a social entrepreneur, mother, inspirational speaker, author, and online safety advocate.

She has a BA Honors in Behavioral Psychology, focusing on self-esteem and self-efficacy among women. It was from this research that she sought to create a solution to the issue of social media addiction and how it was affecting women, children, and families.

Her credo of compassion, community, and caring drives the vision of her company Mazu, a healthy, positive, and fun engagement platform for families, founded in love. Mazu gives children and parents a place to communicate and connect, creating the “digital family village” – the antidote to social media, that awakens families with love.
