Chicago Innovation Award Winner


Winner in: 2018
Winning Product: Jiobit
Winner Category: Up-and-Comer Award
Industries: Technology, Consumer Products

Nothing can disappear faster than a rambunctious youngster in a crowded playground. Jiobit was developed in Chicago not just to keep track of youngsters in a designated area, but to find them wherever they might wander through more than 160 countries. The Jiobit (JOY-bit) battery powers the tiny transponder for more than a week of active rambling, tracking children (and perhaps wandering adults) using a combination of Bluetooth and GPS. The Jiobit relies on a sleek disc that can be tied to shoelaces, belt loops, or carried in a pocket.
