Elevator Pitch:

We're enhancing lives of people with disabilities by creating assistive tech that facilitates community inclusion & employment opportunities

Tell us about your business, what inspired you to get into it, what you sell/service you offer, what makes your business stand out and how it impacts you, your community or the environment.

Necessity is the mother of invention; having a disability forced me to think outside the box to innovatively solve everyday challenges. In 2015, one of my ideas won the MIT AT Hack - a breath activated portable input device that connects to mobile devices. It can reacclimate the newly injured into their communities, give independence via apps (transportation, mobile banking, e-commerce, home automation, etc.), open up employment/education opportunities, and provide novel data to med providers.

How would you use the FedEx Small Business Grant money to make a significant impact on your business?

In 2016 my startup began to scale very quickly - solely on personal funding. I now have a team of four, who are currently donating their skills, and I’d like to show my commitment by providing compensation. Plus, the product has evolved and funding will allow us not only to further development but also add to our marketing campaign using FedEx Print & Services. This grant will give us the boost we need to progress our goal - enhancing lives of those with disabilities.
