Resonex Startup

$663 of $1,500 goal

Raised by 15 people in 14 months
We are a team of 6 teenage entrepreneurs who attend a summer program called Leangap. Here, we learn the skills to become entrepreneurs by building our own businesses! Our team's project looks to create an easier and safer experience for residents in senior homes. Through talking to a handful of senior homes in the Boston area, our team has found that there is currently no system in place that manages residents when they leave the home. 

We want the people who have cared for us all our lives to be cared for in the best possible way. Thus, we have created a company called Resonex. Our company intends to sell a service to senior homes that allows them to know the location of their residents when they leave the home. This service consists of a software, which connects to a wristband with GPS technology known as a "GoBand." This GoBand consists of a distress button, a sleek design, and soft padding to ensure that any senior home resident will feel comfortable wearing our product. As of now, our team needs funding to complete our prototype so we can begin to manufacture our GoBands. 

Please support us as we create GoBands, so we can give our loved ones the independence and freedom that they deserve.

Hi there, and welcome to our GoFundMe page! My name is Rishik, one of the co-founders of Resonex, and I’m here to tell you about our product, GoBands.
In the summer of 2009, I visited my family in India. Everything was going well, until one morning my family woke up and couldn’t find my grandfather. Distraught, we searched relentlessly for him; with his health issues, we didn’t know if he could make it back to us safely. Fortunately, a kind man who discovered he was lost brought him back to our home, telling us that my grandfather had ended up in the next town over but was lost and disoriented. My family and I were relieved that he made it back safely, but we felt unsettled knowing that this situation could happen again, especially when we weren’t in India to care for him.

As I discussed my story with the other Resonex founders, we realized that the safety of senior citizens is a universally pressing issue. Like my grandfather, many senior citizens live independently, but their health issues make it dangerous for them to go out alone. In particular, assisted living facilities, which care for about 4 million senior citizens in the United States, do not have technology integrated into their services that ensure the safety of their residents when they leave the facility by themselves. The irony is that senior citizens are encouraged to and want to be independent, but actually pursuing that self-reliance is dangerous. Sadly, it is a self-defeating issue.

Our company, Resonex, is going to change that.
We have created GoBands to help seniors in assisted living facilities feel independent but safe when they go out alone. As a resident leaves the building, a receptionist will have them put on a GoBand. The wristband is GPS-enabled, so the facility can locate the senior citizen whenever they need to. In addition, if the senior citizen needs help while they’re out alone, they can push the band’s distress button, alerting the facility and allowing them to send help to the senior’s exact location. Its subtle design and smooth material ensures that residents will not only appreciate the safety it offers, but also feel comfortable wearing the band in public. GoBands are the most effective way to provide to seniors that safety which is so important to them while simultaneously ensuring their well-being.
On behalf of the co-founders, I hope that you will support Resonex for the invaluable safety it offers to the people who have given the most to our world and us: senior citizens. It would mean so much to us if you continued to engage with our Facebook page so we can demonstrate your support to assisted living facilities. Throughout this week, we will be posting bios for the rest of the founders, so please stick around to learn more about GoBands and the people behind it!
Thank you in advance, and we hope our product will positively impact someone you care about.

Rishik Lad, Co-Founder
