Laurie Petty
Laurie Petty, Founder: Laurie is a PhD candidate in sociology, but has put that temporarily on hold to focus on ForgetMeNot. She has professional experience in project and product management for SaaS web application development. Perhaps most importantly, she is a mother of four children and is passionate about this product. After hearing about a local child who died after being unintentionally left in a car, Laurie began developing a system to help prevent these tragedies. Laurie has the distinction of being the record holder for distance travelled to participate in the NSF I-Corps program in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She and her family live in the Kansas City, Missouri area.

NSF I-CORPS

This fall, we had the honor of being selected for the Milwaukee NSF I-Corps business development program. Thanks to this excellent program and their expert advisors, we have greatly accelerated the ForgetMeNot venture. This program also pushed us to refine the ForgetMeNot system in response to discussions with leaders in the American Academy of Pediatrics and the National Safety Council.
