"A stylish accessory like the Beacon bracelet helps them stay in the moment and limits their need to reach for their phone."
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) May 26, 2015
Last week marked Beacon & Lively’s graduation night from The Refinery CT Accelerator program. The Refinery is a 12-week program focused on scaling women-led businesses. Their mission is to accelerate the growth of innovative early stage ventures resulting in job creation and viable investments. The program concluded with a pitch night, where Beacon & Lively won the Angel Investor Forum award.
"The Refinery Accelerator was a place for Beacon & Lively to validate our product strengths and to learn from our customers; women who run businesses, manage families, volunteer in their communities and maintain a social life. These are women who remember a time when their cell phone wasn’t a permanent tech fixture in their lives. A stylish accessory like the Beacon bracelet helps them stay in the moment and limits their need to reach for their phone." - Veronica Becker, CEO.
As the Apple Watch enters the market, the public's awareness of wearable tech is shifting from early adopters to general consumers. Consumers demand more style and simplicity in their "wearable technology." The market is poised to grow from $14 billion in 2014 to over $70 billion in 2024*.
