Company description
ROAR for Good is a social impact company aimed at reducing assaults through smart safety jewelry while addressing the underlying causes of violence against women. Our fashionable self-defense wearable technology, Athena, helps deter attacks and instantly calls for help. It includes two modes: an alarm mode for emergencies and SilentROAR™ for discreet situations. However, Athena in not just a product – it's part of a movement to ROAR for Good™. For each device sold, a portion of proceeds is invested into educational programs shown to increase empathy and reduce violence. As a certified B Corporation®, our company is committed using our business as a force for good. To attain this certification, we had to meet rigorous social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency standards. We completed a successful crowdfunding campaign (achieving nearly 700% of our target). We plan to begin shipping Athena in March 2017.
