British entrepreneur Sara Murray, 45, has been named one of Fortune magazine’s ‘Ten Most Promising Women Entrepreneurs 2014’ for her creation of buddi, the tagging system originally designed to locate lost children.
Now used by more than 100 local authorities in the UK to help monitor the vulnerable, it has also been taken up by police forces on three continents to keep track of offenders. Murray set up the firm in 2005 after temporarily losing her child in a supermarket.
Congratulations Sara! We are very proud of you.
