ARLINGTON, Va. (June 24, 2016) – LiveSafe, the world’s leading mobile safety communications platform, has been honored by the Northern Virginia Technology Council with the prestigious Hot Ticket Award for consumer and enterprise innovation.
The NVTC Hot Ticket Awards, which celebrate the region’s best and brightest entrepreneurial technology companies, were announced Thursday at an awards ceremony at NVTC’s CEO Bobbie Kilberg’s home in McLean.
LiveSafe, a platform that focuses on providing actionable crowdsourced intelligence gathering for security officials, has clients including Hearst and Cox Communications and recently received a $5.25 million investment from an affiliated entity of FedEx Corp. Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Frederick W. Smith.
“Our mission at LiveSafe is to make the country safer by empowering people to have a say in their safety and security, so it’s a tremendous honor to have our work recognized by the NVTC,” LiveSafe CEO Carolyn Parent said. “The credit for this award goes to the entire LiveSafe team, who are proud to be a part of the Northern Virginia technology community.”
LiveSafe enables two-way, real-time interaction between individuals and security and facilities teams. The convenience of using a smartphone to ask for help is a game-changing way to open up communication on safety- and security-related concerns. Users can send text, photos, videos and precise location information to report incidents ranging from routine maintenance needs to suspicious activity to safety threats.
Businesses, hospitals, malls, college campuses and large sports and entertainment arenas use LiveSafe’s platform to create a safer environment for employees and customers.
