Innovation Through Trauma
Marlize Holtzhausen founded 911 Rapid Response after her family was brutally attacked. Help finally arrived but it was too late. Determined that other people should not have to go through the ordeal that her family did, she created an app that turns your cellphone into live a mobile panic button.
Her passion and determination to bring her idea to life took her all the way to Switzerland to compete in Google’s prestigious Google Fest, Global Award for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
