"In 2012 I escaped a kidnap attempt. But I realized that what happened to me was not unique in any way. Crime affects women in every city. Women can be sexually and violently assaulted whether or not they live and travel in emerging markets like India, or mature ones like the US. But in spite of technology’s advancements, and the fact that it is a global problem, very little has been done to help women feel safer past a panic button. This is why I teamed up with my cofounder and an international team to build something that can help women take charge of their safety. This is how Watch Over Me was born."
