RapidSOS, an emergency response technology company based in New York, has raised $21 million led by Transformation Capital.
C5 Capital, a cyber security company, Laerdal Million Lives Fund, a health fund focused on life-saving impact, and existing investors, have also joined the round.
RapidSOS will use the funding to extend its work with 4,700+ public safety agencies globally – providing health, connected building, wearable, telematics, and other critical data to first responders.
Michael Martin, CEO of RapidSOS, said: “With this funding, we can further connect health information from the patient in need, to first responders on scene, all the way to hospital systems, driving our mission to create a safer, stronger future where technology and people work together to save lives.”
RapidSOS has developed the world’s first emergency response data platform, which links life-saving data from more than 350 million connected devices and mobile apps directly to 911 and first responders, sharing real-time information such as a caller’s name, location, and opt-in health information.
RapidSOS has raised $107 million to date. Six months ago, RapidSOS announced the close of a $55 million round led by Energy Impact Partners.
