Jacqueline Ros is the co-founder and CEO of Revolar, a technology company that builds wearables and software to help people stay safe and live fearlessly.  Read her profile and story below to learn more about how she is leveraging her business to help others.

I’ve always had a passion for social issues, which led me to work with Teach for America after I graduated from the University of Florida in 2012. I began working on the idea that became Revolar while I was still teaching, and once my program was complete, I decided to pursue Revolar full time. Over the months and years that followed, my team took Revolar through a successful Kickstarter campaign, two Techstars accelerator programs and a $3 million funding round from Boulder-based venture capital firm Foundry Group.

Revolar is now helping people around the world feel safe and protected.
