Congratulations to ITM students Pratyusha Mudrakarta and Elizabeth Rebello who took their idea for “GoSafe” and won in the Illinideas- Social Fuse Competition conducted by the Technology Entrepreneur Center of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. They were one of the 9 winners selected among several other teams in universities across Illinois and were awarded with a winning certificate. 

The idea was originally developed as A Safe Route Indicator and earned them 2nd place in the Chicago Innovation Challenge. The GoSafe product is an overlay for maps that gives you real-time information regarding crimes in the area, allowing you to reroute to a safer path.
