Guest: RapidSOS Founder & CEO, Michael Martin

Please join us for a discussion with Michael Martin, Founder and CEO of RapidSOS. This Castor Ventures portfolio company has created the world’s first emergency response data platform that securely links life-saving data from over 350 million connected devices directly to 911 dispatchers and first responders.

This promising Castor investment is working to maximize their responsiveness and support to understaffed and overburdened 911 centers with a focus in three critical areas:

  • Leveraging rich, contextual emergency data linked to smart devices
  • Providing one centralized clearinghouse for data
  • Offering no cost access and seamless integration to authorized public safety agencies

RapidSOS recently announced they’ve raised an additional $21M to continue expanding their data platform for first responders. Join our webinar on June 18 at 3pm ET to hear more about how Michael Martin and RapidSOS are working to expand their data sources and enhance their business model to bring more life-saving innovation to emergency response.
