The Safely Story

Founded in 2019, Safely is an app designed to help women 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 in one business and streamlining corporate travel bookings with technology in another, Safely co-founders, Justin Nesvanulica and Ross Fastuca, decided to put their heads together to tackle an issue their existing businesses couldn’t resolve:

After a year of research and design and another 8 months of development and testing, Safely is now available to download 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 these horrific public safety statistics for good.

We can't do it alone. Gender based violence 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.

Justin Nesvanulica

Co-FOUNDER
& VISIONARY

Loving husband and father to two beautiful boys. I have 20+ years experience in protecting people. Passions outside of work, art, music, architecture and design.

“I feel that society has evolved yet the security industry has still remained heavily focused on securing property.

Effectively what this means is we as an industry are failing to protect, our most valuable asset the moment we step foot out the door… which is ourselves!”
