The Safely Story
Founded in 2019, Safely is an app designed to help people feel safe and be safe by harnessing the power of people.
No matter how secure a home or workplace is, the moment a woman walks out the door, her safety is left there too. With 2 in 3 women reporting that they feel unsafe outside of their homes and 1 in 3 set to experience physical and / or sexual violence in their lifetime, this issue desperately needed to be addressed.
After spending two decades securing thousands of homes and workplaces, Safely Founder Justin Nesvanulica shared this frustration of violence in society with Ross Fastuca (from Locomote.com - streamlining corporate travel bookings with technology). They decided to put their heads together to tackle an important social issue that existing businesses couldn’t solve.
After endless amounts of research, design and over 12 months of software engineering (that never ends) and testing, Safely was launched. Safely is available to download all over the world on both Apple and Android.
As a business, Safely is committed to making a big shift in society; one where individuals stand behind each other, feel empowered to speak up and work towards changing the status quo of horrific public safety statistics for good.
We can't do it alone. Violence in society is deep-rooted and it's going to take advocacy, education, shifts in attitudes and behaviours, challenging stereotypes and so much more to resolve this global issue. Join us in creating a #saferworld where we can all one day #livefreely.
