Javier Evelyn

Founder and CEO
I'm the Founder and CEO of an early stage medtech startup called Alerje. We're developing an epinephrine auto-injector sized to fit into a smartphone case. When used during food allergy emergencies, an integrated mobile app alerts location info to 911 dispatchers. In addition, I currently serve as the 2017 CODE2040 Entrepreneur In Residence for Grand Circus. In concert with the aforementioned efforts, I co-run a program called How To Fish aimed at introducing youth from underrepresented neighborhoods of Detroit to the tech industry through coding and mentorship.
