The creators of Flare are launching a crowdfunding campaign with Seedrs to help the growth and development of the business.

Since its launch in November 2019, Flare has been on a mission to provide life-saving technology to everyone around the world.

The personal safety app secured a seven-figure investment last year through the LCR Angel Network and is conducting another round of investment to help bolster resources.

The company, which featured in fourth spot on our TransportTech 50 ranking, is an app used by cyclists and other road users.

Co-founder and chief operations officer James Duffy revealed the ambitions of Flare.

“We want to make Flare as widely used as possible by integrating it into partner apps across the world. We want people to think or know of Flare as ‘the technology for protection’,” he said.

Most recently, Flare introduced its Live Share feature which enables users to share their live location in real-time. 

How Flare is creating an ecosystem for safety

“Live Share represents a significant expansion of our already award-winning safety platform,” said co-founder and chief technical officer Kirk Ryan.

Winners of the National Highways Blue Star Award, Flare is giving the public the opportunity to shape its future by owning a stake in the business through the crowdfunding campaign. 

The startup is giving away a lifetime premium subscription to backers who invest £100 or more.
