“It’s more than a business,” shared Jacqueline Ros, founder and CEO of Revolar, a Denver, Colorado based personal safety wearable tech company. “It’s a movement. A movement of people taking back their lives; people living their lives without worrying about what they are wearing, where they are going, or what time they’re going out. We use empowerment and not fear. That’s the entire point of Revolar.” - Via Amysmartgirls
