Against sexual violence: Safelet, a fashion accessory that may save your life, Launches an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign on June 10th 2014.


We are not talking about a gun or a pepper spray. It is not a scary looking weapon. Actually, it is a fashion accessory that any stylish lady would be proud to wear.

It is Safelet, a bracelet that is connected to a smartphone and allows you to send out an emergency alert to your friends, family and the police with just one click. It is designed to offer women a better chance to fight against sexual violence using new technology and social network features.

The device is made as a slick fashion accessory and connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth BLE. A person can invite through social networks or an email as many people as she wants to join her “guardian network”. There is an option to include the whole “guardian community” in the network to get even more protection. “We want to create a world where there is always someone around to help you when you most need it.”(Herman Veenstra, a founder of Safelet). It also has an option to alert the closest law enforcement office.

The bracelet, when activated, will show the exact location of the sender. It also has a microphone to record the events.

Safelet is starting a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, the largest international platform supporting social impact projects, on June 10th 2014. The company founders want to use the campaign not just to pre-sell the product, but to speak up about the problem of sexual violence and women’s safety.

The bracelet will be available for early supporters on Indiegogo for $99 ($30 discount from the retail price). http://www.safelet.com/

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
