Entrepreneur sets launch date
Pick’s personal alarm ready for market
Young entrepreneur Rebecca Pick is expected to launch her personal alarm product this week.
Ms Pick has raised a substantial sum in several funding rounds since she founded her company in Glasgow nearly three years ago.
Her Personal Guardian clip-on device has attracted support from, among others, Equity Gap, the University of Strathclyde, Gabriel Investment Syndicate, Scottish Investment Bank and Unipart Group. The latter is also expected to help with the product’s delivery.
The device was first revealed by Daily Business in June 2015 soon after she presented to the Converge Challenge pitching competition.
In May she was one of three winners of an all-expenses paid trip to meet US investors in California organised by Investing Women.
