Sometimes, a faint voice based on instinct resonates far more strongly than overpowering logic - Naveen Jain.
Anu Jain’s passion for achieving gender equality and fueling positive change in the society has brought the family together under the roof of Xprize Innovation Foundation. Anu decided to use the power of innovation and technology to solve the problem of women's safety. She launched a $1 million XPrize competition to incentivize innovators to design a technology-based solution that sets a new safety standard for women. The idea for creating incentive-based solutions was to create awareness about women's safety, and the competition did just that. Anu continues her work to achieve gender equality. Her vision is a world that celebrates the differences among all individuals. A world in which women, through education and technology, live their healthiest lives and reach their full potential without any restrictions.
Xprize is the hub of innovation where seemingly crazy ideas become a reality. The non-profit organization uses competitions to propel creative breakthroughs. Founded in 1994, the first Xprize was for building a private spacecraft, spurring the emergence of the commercial spaceflight industry. Back then, it was crazy to think about civilians going into space, but now it seems like a near-future reality. Today Xprize is forming new horizons in areas such as space, sustainability, and healthcare. Anu is the Founder of the Anu and Naveen Jain Women Safety XPrize that fueled innovation in wearable devices for women safety.
