U.S. based “this App Saves Lives “ wins Sustainable Mobility Category at Social Innovation Awards

Founder and CEO Ryan Frankel accepted the award at the grand finale gala on May 24, sharing, “In a society that is increasingly addicted to technology, initiatives like TASL are necessary. Reducing traffic accidents is everyone’s job, and through gamification, users are more motivated not to pick up the phone while driving.”

TASL is a smartphone app that rewards drivers who put down their phone while behind the wheel with points redeemable as discounts for a number of great brands and restaurants. The app is available in the App Store.

Ryan was one of three projects representing the United States at the global awards in three categories: Sustainable Mobility, Silver Economy and e-Health. Dr. Shea Gregg was a finalist in the Silvery Economy category with “Fall Call Solutions” and Dr. Jennifer Arnold represented the U.S. in the e-Health category with the Ready.Sim.Go program at Boston Children’s Hospital.

The sixth edition of the Social Innovation Awards received almost 350 submissions from around the world. 12 finalists were chosen, who presented their projects to a judging panel consisting of business professionals from several industries and a variety of social organizations. Three winners were selected based on criteria that included potential for social impact, technical and financial feasibility, and the skills and experience of the teams involved.
