Meet the tech entrepreneur who wants to reduce child road deaths

Safe in Sound’s goal is to market an app which will reduce unnecessary accidents and fatalities on the roads for school children. One of the main causes of deaths on British roads is children not concentrating on road safety on their way to school, often due to listening to music on their headphones. By using the latest geo-fencing technology, Safe in Sound will address this problem and they’re working hard to bring the concept, in the form of an app, to market as soon as possible.

Currently developing the idea, and based out of Sussex Innovation Centre Croydon, Chukwuma will talk about the highs and lows of being an early-stage tech entrepreneur.
