Safeture takes great pride in what we do

Where it all started

Safeture was founded in 2009, after Professor of Medicine and longtime entrepreneur Lars Lidgren had firsthand experience with disaster relief in the SARS epidemic, Indian Ocean tsunami, and Mumbai terror attacks. He realized that vital information sent directly to the person affected by an incident is absolutely crucial in order to prevent harm and save lives.

Not an easy task but we are passionate enough to believe we can.

Turning this grandiose vision to a reality

With the help of world-leading technology and several important patents, we have created an advanced, market leading platform for People Risk Management. We are making risk, safety, and security information available to users at any time, no matter where they are located. By combining Information, Location, and Communication, we can proudly say that today, we have the best complete solution for People Risk Management on the market.
