The Big Idea
“Our product is really cool. It’s a high-quality phone case that has the ability to detect date rape drugs such as ketamine and GHB (gamma hydroxybutyric acid) with thin strips within the phone case. Our target market is women in colleges. Any woman can, if a guy pours her a drink, discreetly test it to make sure that it isn’t drugged. This product is really needed – just a few weeks ago we had a huge issue in Capital Hill with someone being drugged and date raped.”

“We are a group of four women and were motivated to develop this idea because date rape is a huge problem. Each of us knows people who have experienced the horror of date rape and we want to prevent it from ever happening. The date rape culture will only ever change if there is a sustainable solution.”
