Start-up creating an advanced emergency technology platform to predict emergencies, warn people in harm's way, and ensure first responders are one touch away.


Founded: 2013
Employees: 22
Quick Pitch:


RapidSOS’ advanced technology provides a pipeline for data from any connected device to emergency dispatcher systems, without new equipment or cost for dispatchers, leading to faster response times and improved outcomes. RapidSOS then uses machine learning and geo-regression analyses to compare emergency data with environmental factors. The result is models that can preempt emergencies, warn people in danger, and ensure help is one touch away.
