A common adage among parents is that “it takes a village to raise a child”. In the case of Rehema Feleke, CEO and co-founder of FunBand Inc, that common saying also applies to startups.

FunBand Inc aims to improve fun and child safety by providing parents a wristband to track the location of their children at venues. Rehema and her co-founders, UCI alumni Simon Loo and Massoomeh Mullen, created the idea for the wristband, called funLoop, during the 2016 Business Plan Competition (BPC) which is known today as the Beall New Venture Competition.
