Mothers Of Invention – Providing Safer Social Settings | Toyota

Danya Sherman is the Founder and CEO of KnoNap, a detection device disguised as a napkin that detects specifics rape drugs. The disposable napkin detects dangerous chemicals in a beverage. It has perforations along two sides that are lined with detection chemicals that are activated when dipped into a drink. She was studying in Spain when a friend betrayed her trust. Most sexual assault occurs between people who know each other so she created a product people could feel comfortable using in any social situation. She is planning to launch and execute a Kickstarter in April 2018 and working to have the product shipped late Fall 2018.
Prior to establishing KnoNap, Danya Sherman worked on Capitol Hill and in NGOs addressing women’s issues and human rights. In her roles, she acquired legislative and financial experience. Sherman is an entrepreneur passionate about combining human rights and technology innovation to create lasting, sustainable, social change.
Since its inception in 2012, Toyota has cultivated the Toyota Mothers of Invention program by not only awarding more than $1 million to these women-led companies with Driving Solutions grants, but also facilitating networking opportunities, building relevant connections, and providing access to intellectual capital to help their organizations go places. These women, who are leading the charge to work on issues like homelessness, education, food, water, energy, and more, come from all over the world, and are using innovation to create lasting and sustainable impact.
