MākuSafe raises $1.25 million to make workers safer
November 8, 2017
The workplace is on its way to getting safer.
Ankeny-based MākuSafe has raised $1.25 million for continued development of wearable technology aimed at improving the safety for factory workers. The money was raised from private investors and was a convertible note round.
In total, MākuSafe has raised nearly $1.5 million, founder Gabe Glynn said.
MākuSafe is developing a wearable device for factory workers that goes on their arms to sense environmental conditions, such as noise levels and temperature. The hope is to provide up-to-date safety information and prevent fatal injuries.
Glynn said the company is going through beta testing through November and hopes to release a full product early in 2018...
MākuSafe was formed by a powerful team of software, hardware and data engineers in an effort to prove that workplaces around the globe can be made safer by gathering environmental data around workers WHILE they work. Using analytics and machine learning technology we can turn that data into predictors so that accidents can be stopped before they happen.
