How TJay Came Into Being: My Journey as an Entrepreneur

December 9 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
TRACK: Entrepreneurship
Aura 3
LEVEL: Beginner

Pain and frustration at being unable to get an answer to her son’s epilepsy drove Raji to create a wearable device for the prediction and management of epilepsy. This patent-pending device, powered by IoT and machine learning, called TJay is now scalable to other neurological disorders and has been recognized as an innovation by the Government of India and abroad. Raji would like to share how she transformed her negativity to positivity and invented a product that will now save lives, making diagnosis more accurate. Her journey, where in the last five years she came close to giving up on several fronts to realizing that she cannot depend on others alone to safeguard her son’s life, has been a roller coaster ride. She would like to share how a mother, when required, can rise up to the challenge and do the unthinkable, yet be successful despite all odds.
