Rajia is the CEO of invisaWear, a company that creates smart jewelry and accessories with safety technology hidden inside. With just two clicks, invisaWear's life-saving technology alerts friends, family, and even the police that the user is requesting help.
At the young age of 21, Rajia developed this innovative technology, turning down a prestigious job opportunity with Google to pursue her passion for making a difference in the world. Her mission was to combat the alarming statistics surrounding sexual assault, where 1 in 5 women is sexually assaulted at some point in her lifetime.
In just a few short years, Rajia has taken invisaWear from launch to over 100,000 customers, successfully raising millions of dollars to bring the product to market within 2 years. She has become one of the most successful young entrepreneurs in Massachusetts, defying the odds stacked against women and minorities in the industry. Rajia has even partnered with two multi-billion-dollar companies and industry leaders in security, ADT Security and Telus Communications.
As a technology innovator and empowering female force, Rajia has been recognized by the Boston Globe as one of the Top Tech Power Players in MA, she was an honoree of BostInno's 25 Under 25 list and TechCo's Top 100 Startups. She is also a recipient of the prestigious New England Innovations Award, previously awarded to companies such as Ben and Jerry's, iRobot, and Vistaprint.
Rajia's goal as a minority female CEO is to inspire other young entrepreneurs to follow their dreams despite the naysayers who may doubt them for being too young or simply having an idea. Her success has inspired her to mentor aspiring entrepreneurs through UMass Lowell's Entrepreneurship program.
