Like all good stories, ours began with Mom. Mom called us one night wondering if we had watched the local news and seen what happened. We told her no, so she told us about a CEO of a hospital who had accidentally left her daughter in the back of her car on the way to work, and unfortunately, her daughter died. We were shocked, and were curious to see if this was more than just a freak accident. We did some googling that night and found out that this was a serious problem that parents all over the country were facing. That's when we decided to put together a solution and enter into Texas Tech's Red Raider Idea Competition.
We were fortunate enough to win the competition and gain the support of the community, which then propelled us into Texas Tech's iLaunch business plan competition. From there we continued working with the Innovation Hub to research the best solution through the TTU Accelerator Program. In June 2018, we partnered with the National Science Foundation and began the NSF National I-Corps program to identify the best solution to vehicular heatstroke.
