Geospiza, a startup that enables emergency response stakeholders to make split-second data-driven decisions to garner results, maximize ROI and save lives has announced that it has received $1 million in seed funding.
Geospiza will use the funds to bolster its AI-powered evolved platform in order to facilitate robust mapping and data modeling. Andy Boyd, an industry leading and experienced disaster recovery professional will be shareholders’ representative on the board.
“It’s hard not to root for Sarah and her team. They recognize that the most vulnerable people are disproportionately affected by disaster and they are building a business that harnesses big data, applies machine learning, predictive modeling, and deep industry expertise to help solve this problem. I am proud to support their growth as an investor and board member,” says Andy Boyd, investor, and board member.
