Mobile safety communications platform LiveSafe has made two significant announcements. It has closed its Series B funding round after raising $5.25m, which came from an outlet affiliated with Frederick W. Smith, who will join the company’s board of directors. Smith is CEO, chairman, and president of FedEx.

LiveSafe provides two-way communication between users and corporations, whether it’s facilities management or security teams, where concerns can be raised and highlighted. This could be anything from routine maintenance issues, to safety and security threats. The platform supports text reports, photos, video, and GPS data, all sent from a user’s smartphone and accompanying app.

Frederick W. Smith said:

“LiveSafe helps companies and employees to have a more direct role in safety and security and is without question a significant innovation in the way we look at crowdsourced intelligence gathering. LiveSafe not only allows for safety and security, it empowers employees and potentially helps prevent workplace incidents ranging from violence to misconduct to accidents.”

LifeSafe CEO Carolyn Parent added:


“The world has never been more connected than it is today, and LiveSafe takes that connectivity to the next level by allowing companies and employees to feel empowered to do something about their own safety and security. The fact that Mr. Smith recognizes the significance of this technology is an incredible honor. He revolutionized the global logistics space and now sees the potential for LiveSafe to revolutionize how we view our safety and security.”
