This Entrepreneur Creates Jewelry To Keep Women Safe
One night, Rajia Abdelaziz was walking back to her car when a car full of guys rolled down the window and started harassing her. Luckily, she was able to get in her car unharmed. After this frightening situation, she looked for a safety device but couldn’t find anything stylish, discreet, and functional. With the help of her classmate Ray Hamilton, she developed InvisaWear, a smart jewelry and accessories line with an instant and safe way to alert loved ones and even 911 during an emergency.
They applied for the 2017 Winter Business Accelerator in Merrimack Valley to learn more about business and make connections. “We were hoping to connect with manufacturers and to find lawyers who could help us apply for patents!” recalls Rajia.
Their mentors, were “phenomenal,” according to Rajia, connecting them to lawyers, investors, and manufacturers and helping them take their business to the next level.
Since graduating from the program, InvisaWear has been featured in many national TV programs and publications, including Good Morning America, The Today Show, Fox News, Rachel Ray Show, and the Wall Street Journal. And, they have sold over 70.000 of their smart jewelry pieces and accessories!
Invisawear now has 17 employees and partnered with ADT to provide its users best in class security protection. The company recently announced a partnership with a Canadian security provider and plans to expand into Europe and the Middle East.
Rajia couldn’t be happier saying, “We would never be where we are today if it wasn’t for EforAll; we’re continuously raving about the program.”
