Andrea Palmer, founder of Awake Labs, was recently named among BCBusiness’ 2017 30 Under 30. This award recognizes young entrepreneurs who are excelling professionally, are innovative in their industry, and who are giving back to others and the community.
A prominent theme among the 2017 winners is the passion to make the world a better place, something that Palmer certainly aims to do with the creation of the Reveal. Starting out as a university project during her undergraduate degree, the Reveal is a wearable device that has gained Palmer national recognition. Designed to measure stress indicators, such as heart rate and skin temperature, and transmit the data to a smartphone app, she hopes to use the device to monitor signs of anxiety, specifically in children with autism or other neurological disorders.
This year’s winners will be recognized at the 2017 BCBusiness 30 Under 30 event on Thursday, April 13th, 2017 at the Vancouver Club.
Congratulations Andrea Palmer!
