    LiveSafe believes that every individual has a right to feel and be safe at all times. This is a cornerstone of healthy, happy, and productive communities. We act on this belief by creating software that changes the dynamics of how individuals communicate with safety officials, security personnel, and others for improved safety outcomes.

    Our “social safety” products allow employees and students to easily connect with corporate security and campus safety, as well as with each other. Passion for building safer communities is in our DNA and we are serious about providing a high quality product that works every time someone needs it.

    LiveSafe technology fosters effective safety-related communication via a mobile safety app linked to a cloud-based command dashboard. Through the smartphone app, individuals have real-time access to the help they need at the touch of a button in a convenient, comfortable and discreet way. The goal is for individuals to share information with security personnel and safety officials about sexual assault, mental health issues, and violence — preventing incidents before they occur.

    Since going to market, LiveSafe has helped save a student’s life, led police to make several arrests, contributed to an overall 40% reduction in crime at one of their partner schools and prevented an unquantifiable number of other incidents from occurring.

    WHO WE ARE

    The LiveSafe Team is composed of diverse individuals hailing from across the US and around the world. We spend lots of quality time in the office together, working on improving our technology and service in order to make our world a safer place. We are sustained by a fully stocked kitchen (coffee, snacks, beer and more!), tons of natural light and an amazing view. Lunch for the team is covered by LiveSafe every Friday and the other days of the week we often venture to nearby eateries and food trucks.

    In addition to our strong work ethic and even stronger appetites, we are all deeply committed to LiveSafe's mission. Passion for safety and community is a huge part of our company culture and something we take very seriously. Ultimately, we are all here because we want to make a difference and can do so in an environment that encourages learning and enjoying the ride.
