Our Story

On 9/11, a group of coworkers and friends at a NYC startup found themselves struggling to reach each other.

Their newfound understanding of the value of staying connected drove them to develop a secure 2-way communication system that would work even when other methods failed.

2 years later, AlertFind was born.
