We believe businesses should be owned in part by the users who make businesses what they are. A product or service is not enough. Users, customers, consumers or whatever you may call buyers of goods and services deserve growth as a result of their critical actions. EQUITY.
Our immediate goal as a public benefit corporation is to design and produce useful & affordable public safety products and mobile accessories which will open the door to the business model described above.
We can't legally do the above until after our equity crowdfunding raise scheduled for late 2018 but we can certainly discuss it as it is within our corporate charter.
Imagine the benefits to society if everyday people were actual stakeholders in the businesses that they supported. In fact, the consumer, is the most critical part of any commerce equation. The time has come because technology has harnessed the power of big data. Therefore, things that used to be immeasurable are now measurable so give the people what they deserve - EQUITY.
