Kayleigh is the founder of a young local (Baltimore) startup called PerdidoFido! Their most recent accomplishment was winning the 1st prize of $15,000 at the University of Baltimore's Merrick School of Business's Rise to the Challenge Pitch Competition the first week in May.
PerdidoFido is developing a GPS, activity, and vital health tracker with an interactive phone app for dogs and cats. It's concept is to track a pets activity and offer guidance and education about weight loss, proper nutrition and activity alternative. Once complete, plans are to incorporate the vital health tracker which measures and records a pet’s heart rate, temperature and respiration and this information is sent to the veterinarian once a month for review to aid in early detection and prevention of disease and illness.

A little bit about myself: My name is Kayleigh Harkay and I attended the Vet Tech Institute where I received my degree in Veterinary Technology in Pittsburgh, PA. I then went on to be a veterinary technician for 5 years at two Veterinary Centers of America’s (VCA) before taking some time to travel. I am now enrolled in the Ratcliffe Entrepreneurship Fellows program through the University of Baltimore’s Merrick School of Business and working towards my BA in Entrepreneurship. I am a dog mom to a goofball of a pitbull named Gunther. Gunther loves adventure, loves to take off and run through fields and chase every squirell he sees. Him and his antics constantly keep me on my toes. He’s also my best friend and as my best friend, I knew the minute that he came home with me that I needed something to keep him happy, healthy and safe for life.
