Hapbee Included in Fast Company's 2022 Awards of World Changing Ideas

Hapbee's Bio-Streaming Technology Receives Honorable Mention in the Wellness Category

Fast Company's 2022 World Changing Ideas Awards were announced today, honoring clean technology, innovative corporate initiatives, brave new designs for cities and buildings, and other creative works that are supporting the growth of positive social innovation, tackling social inequality, climate change, and public health crises.

MONTRÉAL, May 3, 2022 /CNW/ - Hapbee Technologies, Inc. (TSXV: HAPB) (OTCQB: HAPBF) (FSE: HA1) ("Hapbee" or the "Company"), a leading provider of wellness wearables and bio-streaming technology, is pleased to announce it has been included in the Wellness Category of Fast Company's 2022 World Changing Ideas Awards for its innovative Hapbee Neckband and Wellness Blends.

Hapbee utilizes groundbreaking technology that records the natural magnetic energy of compounds that you might ingest. The product can be worn around the neck or placed under a pillow for sleep and plays these frequencies back to you on demand – giving your body the sensation without any potential side effects.

Now in its sixth year, the World Changing Ideas Awards showcases ground-breaking technologies and innovations — with climate, social justice, wellness, AI, and data among the most popular categories.

A panel of eminent Fast Company editors and reporters selected winners and finalists from more than 2,997 entries across transportation, education, food, politics, technology, health, social justice, and more. In addition, several new categories have been added this year including climate, nature, water, and workplace. The 2022 awards feature entries from across the globe, from Switzerland to Hong Kong to Australia.

"As an emerging wellness technology company focused on improving people's lives, being recognized by Fast Company for our first product to hit the market is a proud moment for our team and shareholders," stated Yona Shtern, CEO of Hapbee. "With an exciting product pipeline and new initiatives ahead for Hapbee, I look forward to future opportunities for our brand and the positive impact we can have on our customers' lives."

"We are consistently inspired by the novelty and creativity that people are applying to solve some of our society's most pressing problems, from shelter to the climate crisis. Fast Company relishes its role in amplifying important, innovative work to address big challenges," says David Lidsky, interim editor-in-chief of Fast Company. "Our journalists have identified some of the most ingenious initiatives to launch since the start of 2021, which we hope will both have a meaningful impact and lead others to join in being part of the solution."

Additions to Senior Management Team
