Dogs using computers? Teenage entrepreneur develops technology to check on pets and then evolves into a tool for adult care.
Brooke is a 15-year-old entrepreneur from Spokane, Washington. Her career was launched at Startup Weekend Spokane in the Fall of 2012. At age 12, she pitched an innovative way for dog owners to video chat with their pets and deliver a treat from anywhere using their smartphone, tablet, or computer. iCPooch went into production in July of 2014 and is now available for purchase in the United States and Canada. Brooke and iCPooch have been featured on Shark Tank, NBC Evening News, CBS News, FOX News, NPR, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Meredith Viera Show and other media. Brooke is currently working on her latest invention, iCLovedOnes, a device that lets you video chat with an aging relative and remotely deliver their medication.
She is currently a junior at Saint George’s School in Spokane.
