Kazoo, a startup based in Washington, D.C., has developed a B2B mobile SOS technology platform that has the potential to save countless lives through enhanced 911 connectivity. Their platform transforms any smartphone into a personal safety lifeline to ensure total peace of mind for tens of millions of users worldwide.
More than 240 million 911 calls are made annually. Every single day, tens of thousands of these calls are sent to the wrong emergency call centre due to call routing errors. The misrouted calls then have to be transferred to the correct jurisdiction before help can be sent.
Kazoo’s technology ensures accurate call routing every single time by automatically relaying precise pinpoint location data to first responders—which results in speedier response times that victims so desperately need. Ensuring accurate call routing is just one of many ways that Kazoo improves emergency services connectivity for its users.
Along with transforming the 911 capabilities of any smartphone, Kazoo’s product roadmap also includes migration towards Web 3.0 (interconnectivity between smartphones, smart medical devices/wearables, car telematics, home security systems, and more). The Kazoo platform will provide preemptive safety and security capabilities for users across all types of mobile devices, allowing for maximum market penetration.
Kazoo is based in the U.S. and led by Peter J. Goodman, the CEO and a founder in Kazoo, who is backed by a proven team of technology and business talent. A lifelong entrepreneur with a strong track record of building and launching rapid-growth SaaS companies in the healthcare, technology, and mobile app sectors, Goodman comments, “I am passionate about building innovative products that help people. The Kazoo team and I are committed to creating a safer, stronger future where technology and people work together seamlessly to protect and save lives. Empowering our users with the option to share vital information directly with 911 through Kazoo’s platform is a game-changer.”
The startup is also supported by FasterCapital. After having joined the Raise Capital program, Kazoo will be matched with a network of angel investors and funding sources to attain its required capital as quickly as possible.
Kazoo is planning to raise $500K in order to finish product development and begin offering services to corporate clients across the U.S. and the world.
