Becca Hume

Founder of TapSOS

Year Honored



Curious about users, behaviours and needs, Becca founded a technology company, designing products and services for better inclusion. Her technology company is mostly known for their non-verbal emergency reporting app, TapSOS.

TapSOS is the only UK company to be accredited by BAPCO, DCMS and is integrated with BT 999 for all four emergency services.

Becca believes in ‘being the change you’d like to see’ and is passionate about design for those most vulnerable in society and to be a voice for those unheard.

Becca was awarded the 2020-2021 Women in Innovation award through Innovate UK and during 2020 expanded the innovation for domestic abuse reporting, in response to the impact of COVID-19.
