HOLMDEL, N.J - On Thursday, August 10 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Bell Works in Holmdel, NJ, Daniel Reji, Founder and CEO of SafeHalo, a service for university students by university students, will talk about his inspiration behind creating this mission. Specifically, he will talk about the design mechanisms that led him on this journey. For SafeHalo, he was designing to meet his users’ needs, not just trying to make the most eye-catching product. He will go through his design thinking for solving hard problems through simple design.

 

Originally started at Rutgers University, SafeHalo chapters have spread to Emerson College and the University of Oregon, and expanding. Dan built SafeHalo not because he wanted to run a business, but because he wanted to prove that college students would look out for each other. That’s where his design came in. SafeHalo is a buddy system service, on demand, without judgment, stigmas or a charge. When university students text SafeHalo, a request is sent for Halos to walk other students from Point A to Point B. It’s just in case a student needed a friend. SafeHalo isn’t a company or a business, it’s a mission #ForEachOther.
