“We’re proud to have been given the opportunity to showcase our BiiSafe Buddy in the pitching competition at Web Summit today. As a young Finnish tech company, the hope is to get more investors interested in the business, promoting the growth of the business within the country and abroad. A very exciting time for us!” said Tuomo Pentikäinen, CEO, BiiSafe
BiiSafe was established in 2012 in Finland to bring high quality, user-friendly and reliable safety solutions to the international personal safety market.
BiiSafe brings an innovative solution to the international safety and security market. The solution is called BiiSafe Buddy, a smart Bluetooth device, app and cloud service designed for personal safety.
Buddy provides a different approach to the way security companies work. It is especially designed for any “call for help” situation that requires a wearable, stylish and reliable alert and location sharing service. To this extent, BiiSafe is collaborating with security companies to ensure end-users have access to an easy-to-use, simple, yet reliable tool to make an alert and get help at the press of a button. It is as easy as it sounds.
BiiSafe has raised over 2 million EUR of risk funding. The company is continuously receiving a high level of interest from both potential investors as well as some of the biggest players in the security and tech industries.
