Leaf Wearables- an Indian startup which raised $250,000 in 2016 to launch their first product SAFER- A Smart Pendant for Women Safety, has now won $ 1 million Anu and Naveen Jain Women’s Safety XPRIZE. The Grand Prize Winner Announcement and Award Ceremony happened in New York City on June 6,2018 at the United Nations Headquarters. An XPRIZE is a highly leveraged, incentivized prize competition that pushes the limits of what’s possible to change the world for the better. The XPRIZE Board Members include Ratan Tata, Larry Page, Naveen and Anu Jain, Amir Ansari, Jack Bader and the company is led by Peter H Diamandis. Founded by the students of IIT Delhi and Delhi Technological University, Leaf Wearables started working on their first product “SAFER Smart Jewellery” back in 2015 when they made a smart pendant which women can double press to send SOS alerts to their loved ones. The product was launched in 2016 and went on to become one of the best selling wearable technology product in India. Leaf Wearables was among top 10 innovators who were also a part of PM Narendra Modi’s delegation to Silicon Valley in 2015 and has also won multiple awards in countries like Singapore and UAE for their work on this problem. For the Women’s Safety XPRIZE, Leaf Wearables had developed a new technology called SAFER v3 which incorporates all their learnings of previous versions in terms of robust communication, precise location accuracy and audio streaming during the attack. Apart from that Leaf Wearables is also working on last mile connectivity of help as well. “WinningXPrize is a great deal in our mission to make this world a safer place. We will now have the support of global tech influencers and the close knit community of xprize,” said Avinash Bansal, cofounder at Leaf. “XPRIZE as a platform gives us huge opportunity to showcase the growth and development of innovation and technology in our country. The problem of women safety is all over the world and being situated in New Delhi we know the problem in and out. We are hoping that with XPRIZE credibility India will be looked as a hub of innovation and where hardware companies don’t only build product but thrive,” added Manik Mehta, cofounder at Leaf. Leaf Wearables was the only Indian Team among the finalists and it has proved how the women safety products built here can a solve problem globally. Entrepreneurs and philanthropists, Anu and Naveen Jain launched a million-dollar prize using the XPRIZE platform, the global leader in designing incentive competitions solving humanity’s grand challenges, to address the safety of women and girls by leveraging technology. The prize, launched in 2016, challenged innovators around the world to create a device that can inconspicuously trigger an emergency alert if a woman is facing a threat and transmit information to a network of community responders, all within 90 seconds and costing under $40. “Safety is a fundamental human right and shouldn’t be considered a luxury for women. It is the foundation in achieving gender equality,” said Anu Jain, philanthropist and founder of the Women’s Safety XPRIZE. “With so many advances in innovation and technology today, it was unacceptable to us that we didn’t have a solution to help curb this sexual assault pandemic. We congratulate the winning team and thank all the teams that poured their heart and soul into finding innovative solutions to move humanity forward.” “Women’s safety is not just a third world problem; we face it every day in our own country and on our college campuses. It’s not a red state problem or a blue state problem but a national problem,” said Naveen Jain, philanthropist and co-founder of the Women’s Safety XPRIZE. “We are thrilled to announce the winning solution and are confident that all the teams that competed will provide many options and tools to millions of communities around the world to ensure the safety of its members.” Share this article:
