“Safety for kids is like drinking water and having fun is giving them their daily nutrition.”

I created B’zT (Beacon Zone Technology) to help parents keep track of their young or special needs children utilizing our tech-enhanced apparel and smartphone App. Speaking from personal experience, I wanted to do my part to help reduce the risk of lost and missing children. Before I joined Women in Cloud, I viewed my t-shirts, patches, accessories, and app as helpful products that can be sold directly to consumers or through other outlets. After participating and winning in the #CloudInnovateHERxDigital Pitch Challenge my perception radically changed. Women in Cloud widened my perspective and showed me the deeper value of our IoT solution. Our specialized apparel and app generate valuable consumer data that can be utilized by hyper-scalers to market additional products and services to their customer segment. I quickly learned that Women in Cloud is dedicated to female inclusiveness, collaboration, and empowerment. I found a nurturing and attentive environment that would allow me to take my start-up and my ideas to the next level.

I also believe that Women in Cloud provides an environment for leaders and entrepreneurs to talk about policy advancements in the industry. With my continued partnership with Women in Cloud, I dream to build partnerships with the public, private, and non-profit sectors to bring female students, entrepreneurs, and professionals into the technology sector. Female tech-economic access starts with more funding for STEM education in our public schools. There should be an emphasis on internships, collaborative learning, and mentorships throughout a young woman’s academic journey. 

I believe tomorrow starts with today’s children. Focussing on that, I will also be presenting a session at the Women in Cloud Digital Summit 2021 about the lack of reliability and durability the current smart wear apparel and how we can bring accessible high-tech smart wear to the mass market benefitting especially the young but also old alike.  

The Women In Cloud has offered me unmatched companionship and support to strategize how to handle the new phase of my entrepreneurial journey especially throughout the pandemic. Being surrounded by women who want to leverage technology to scale their businesses has literally transformed my own entrepreneurial vision. The community has also inspired me to think holistically. The question that now runs through my head all day is, How can we further serve the needs of children? 

Join me at the Women in Cloud Digital Summit 2021, and help me seek an answer to the question above, and let us collectively create safety, inclusivity, and accessibility for our kids to take over technology!
