In order to align incentives, and meet the needs of a diverse ecosystem, Participants in the Program are divided into three components; entrepreneurs, public safety agencies and industry.
The Program gives entrepreneurs resources to overcome and excel through the unique challenges faced in the public safety industry. “Far too often we see top technology avoid or exit the public safety industry due to inefficiencies and barriers. ResponderXLabs helps the entrepreneurs behind those technologies better navigate the path to market in public safety.” Said Bryce Stirton, Responder Corp Co-Founder & President and ResponderXLabs Board Member. “We’ve brought industry together to build a clear path for entrepreneurs to commercialize their solutions in the rapidly growing public safety technology market.”
The Program provides public safety agencies with support to pinpoint technology needs, identify solutions, streamline adoption and enable a successful deployment. “As an active deputy, I see first hand the technology deficiencies first responders overcome on a daily basis”, said Nathanial Wish, Responder Corp Co-Founder & CEO and ResponderXLabs Board Member. “As an active investor in the industry, I see first hand the inefficiencies in the innovation cycle that keeps that needed technology out of the field. ResponderXLabs is bringing industry together in a way that aligns incentives, so we can eliminate the inefficiencies and focus on delivering the best solutions to support first responders.”
The Program provides industry leaders with curated access and opportunities to leverage cutting-edge technology. “ResponderXLabs provides a new mechanism for established companies to partner with startups and public safety agencies to incubate, validate and scale innovation in the public safety market – creating a funnel of opportunity for the enterprises that embrace it”, says Dustin Haisler, Chief Innovation Officer for e.Republic & ResponderXLabs Board Member.
