We want to change society

1 of 3 women feel unsafe outside their own home.

The need to feel safe in outdoor environments exists worldwide. 17 % of women in Sweden have in the past year refrained from activities due to fear. 32 % have also often chosen a different road or mode of transport due to fear. Linn Gerhardsson decided to change that.

Meet the Founder

Show that we protect the most valuable we have – ourselves!

My name is Linn Gerhardsson and I am the founder and CEO of Alarmwear. I am a civil engineer in product design and the idea for Alarmwear came up during my Master Thesis. Since my early teens, I have experienced threats and insecurity in outdoor environments, as have many other women. From my own personal frustration, the drive and will was born to create a solution to reduce women's insecurity in outdoor environments and, by this, support and contribute to a change in our society.

About us

The company was founded in 2018, and as a foundation for the company lies a degree report containing 140 pages. Significant persons who are working close to crimes believe that our products can make a difference. So do we. From the start, our ambition has been to create products that are sustainable, not least in our wear and tear society. Therefore, we are working with materials that can withstand being torn and thrown. Our hope is also that Alarmwear can help reduce the number of assaults taking place, which could lead to fewer resources being needed in healthcare and judiciary. Alarmwear had the honor of winning the SKAPA-award for best innovation in Norrbotten county. The SKAPA-award is the largest award for innovators in Sweden in memory of Alfred Nobel.
