StaySafe Business is described as an app and cloud-based monitoring service that turns your smartphone into a safety device. Launched in 2014, it now has over 80 business clients including Countrywide, Ericsson and Huawei (>1500 potential users per business). The company shared:
“StaySafe aims to solve the problem employers have in monitoring Lone Worker staff who are in a potentially vulnerable situation should they suffer an accident or attack. Lone Workers by definition do not have the usual safety net of a colleague to arrange help.”
StaySafe launched an equity crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube last summer and secured £532,800 from 195 investors.
Funds from the campaign are being used for the following:
- Team (including increase in direct and indirect sales, and support) – 75%
- Increased Marketing – 15% and Product Development – 10%
