Kiyeon Nam: Preventing Kids from Going Missing and Keeping Them Safe Through Smart Wear IoT Solution
Growing a small company into a universal brand is like climbing a mountain; the journey has many obstacles. For a leader, a positive attitude inspires him/her to keep moving forward. One such innovative leader is Kiyeon Nam, the Inventor, Founder, and CEO of B’ZT® (Beacon Zone Technology).
Kiyeon’s passion and dedication to create something new are unmatched. Her experience as a fashion designer and business merchandiser brings a special kind of creativity and affordability to fashion technology. In addition, her desire to improve herself and everyone around her makes her a great leader.
Compassionate for the Vulnerable
The global issue of missing children is staggering. According to FBI statistics, one child in America goes missing every minute. Young children, especially with autism and similar conditions, are prone to wandering off. Researchers have found that almost half of autistic children attempt to wander away, usually into dangerous situations.
The tracking device industry is full of gadgets that are uncomfortable to wear, easy to lose, or require monthly fees. They offer unique but expensive products that don’t gear towards safety. The devices also lose functionality after washings.
Nevertheless, there is an old saying that states amid chaos, there is opportunity. Using her expertise in fashion design, Kiyeon created B’ZT after temporarily losing her 3-year-old daughter at a shopping mall because she couldn’t find a location-based tracking device that was suitable or comfortable for her child.
Kiyeon created B’ZT to keep parents and children safe and connected, both here in North America and around the world. B’ZT is an award-winning personal safety solution, combining fashion and geo-fence tracking technology to prevent missing children and adults. She came up with a comfortable and cost-effective solution for tracking children and vulnerable individuals using Smart Clothing and smartphone apps.
