THE MY KEEPER PROJECT INCEPTION

bouton anti agression, alerte, sos, forêt

The inception idea of My Keeper appeared during a family diner. The family began a discussion around the feeling of insecurity that affects women. Sandra, their 15 years old little cousin is not allowed to go out for a run on her own in the forest next to her home. While searching for a solution, they thought about a connected device which would allow to instantly send notifications or text messages in order to inform ones relatives in case of an emergency, with the person's location. Through this idea, the Demarchez family understood that their product could be very useful for different people in various situations. For example Evelyne who runs on her own in the forest, or a friend who is nervous about walking home alone after a party. And this is how the Demarchez family began to develop the community aspect of their project.
