Meet CommSafe AI
CommSafe AI uses artificial intelligence to disrupt emerging threats of workplace conflict and violence 24/7 for B2B large enterprise companies with >3000 employees and the Department of Defense. Our technology gives our customers peace of mind and protection against a ~$528B/year problem in the US that reduces employee productivity and damages a company’s brand and reputation.
Why is your company the best option to solve the problem you're solving?
Because of our unique mesh of military special operations, law enforcement, technology, and data science experience, we are trained in nearly every security risk known to man. We are also patenting unique AI and have access to military data. We've also built a unique go-to-market strategy alongside the largest insurance brokerages in the world. And our team already combines five successful exits.
What nuggets of info make you interesting? Why do people care about what you're doing?
Conflict and violence in the workplace is a ~$528B problem in the US; in fact, pre-pandemic, ~8000 assaults a day took place in US workplaces. The pandemic has actually exacerbated this problem. Since the start of the pandemic, our nation has seen a rise in gun sales, the sale of ghost-gun parts, cyberbullying, sexual harassment, and stalking, domestic violence, child abuse, and even homegrown terror. As we consider the future of work, most of the physical security tactics that kept employees safe in the workplace became obsolete with work-from-home (WFH) becoming the new normal as a result of COVID19. We believe at least 30% of people will WFH indefinitely. With this said, companies will need the assistance of brilliant technologies in order to ensure the safety and security of employees regardless of their location. Some companies say they are trying to change the world, but by solving this problem, we ARE changing the world.
What else do you want us to know?
Our team is the definition of diversity and inclusion, equity and belonging. We are protectors of people.
