Brief description of company and business model
Safe365 is a startup that has developed a mobile application to help families care for older people, taking advantage of the potential of geolocation. The service offered is completely free and today the goal of Safe365 is to grow ostensibly in the volume of daily active users and does not consider monetizing the application. Therefore, since it does not generate income, it has been able to develop its product thanks to the investment rounds that it has been raising until then.
