Meet the founders of Tego, Mark and Angela, and learn more about our passion to get you home safely.
Mark has a younger sister who is active in the theatre community at her college. She often is practicing her performance late at night, sometimes even until ten or eleven o’clock. Mark is always worried about his sister, constantly checking in on her to make sure she arrives safely. There were a few times when his sister forgot to notify Mark when she arrived home, which also led Mark to think there was a better solution to texting him when she arrives home.
Angela and Mark were friends and attended the same Bible study. The two decided to partner up and try to tackle this issue of communicating while traveling. They both are finishing school at OSU, and plan on pursuing Tego fulltime. Whether it was from an assault or anxiety, traveling alone causes many people to feel uneasy. Tego calms these nerves while adding in additional layers of protection – such as our safety alarm and the live video recording. These features allow us to warn or perpetrators while recording their actions to report to authorities.
