TJ Kennedy, former President of FirstNet, and Jason Karp, former Chief Counsel of FirstNet, along with Robert Wilson, seasoned marketing and technology expert, have started the consulting firm that offers strategic and advisory services, venture capital and public safety technology business accelerator services, as well as expedited public safety app development.

We will help innovate new technologies and solutions that empower public safety each day and facilitate emergency response like never before,” says co-founder TJ Kennedy.

“We look forward to helping both established and start-up technology companies take advantage of the new public safety paradigm shift and opportunity by embracing the first responder community and becoming the new generation of industry leaders in this space. The public safety broadband ecosystem is on the cusp of incredible growth and innovation, and we are truly excited about partnering with these existing and new thought leaders to ensure public safety has the latest, most advanced lifesaving technologies at their disposal,” adds co-founder Jason Karp.
