A GLASGOW entrepreneur has launched her first product – a range of lone-worker security technology.

Twenty-three year-old Rebecca Pick – winner of the 2015 Santander Universities Entrepreneurship Award for best undergraduate business in the UK – founded her company Pick Protection while still a student at the University of Strathclyde.

Pick was recently named by Scottish Development International as one of the most influential women in technology, and has attracted almost £1 million in funding for her products.

This has allowed her to develop a range of ready-for-market security products for lone workers, including a monitored attack alarm.

Pick Protection has grown to include a team of nine with 60 years’ collective experience in the security industry between them, as well as strong tech credentials.

The company has the backing of Unipart Security, whose alarm receiving centre will monitor Pick Protection’s alarm devices.
