Empowering At-Risk Employees

We believe Whereable/RiskBand is the first company to combine a sophisticated SaaS platform with a wearable emergency monitoring device designed for at-risk and lone workers. Together, the platform and the device can help businesses protect their employees, dispatch emergency response, and investigate incidents. Clients include FedEx, Sally Beauty Stores, Carilion Health Care, Humana, Dollar General Stores, Michelin, Kirkland’s, Helzberg Diamonds, Chico’s, Sesame Street Workshop, Biogen, and Molina Healthcare.

This Reg CF offering is made available through StartEngine Capital, LLC. This investment is speculative, illiquid, and involves a high degree of risk, including the possible loss of your entire investment.

Reasons to Invest

  • 521%+ YoY growth in revenue and contract value in 2020, thanks to multi-year contracts with major customers, many of whom increased orders after initial deployment. Additional customers expected when the next generation 4G compatible device is introduced.
  • Our CEO, as a founder and CEO, has completed IPOs for three companies since 1997.
  • Wearable device works without a smartphone and offers true emergency-monitoring functionality. Device and SaaS platform designed and developed by in-house software engineering team and manufactured in the US. 


A complete solution for worker safety

We have created the RiskBand emergency monitoring device and ARIES SaaS platform to enable businesses to protect their employees, dispatch emergency response, and investigate incidents. The company is currently pursuing an aggressive customer acquisition strategy, as well as increasing shipments to existing clients. 

We believe our solution helps businesses mitigate workplace injury and worker safety risks. It also offers peace of mind to the pandemic-driven lone worker force making deliveries and providing care.


Businesses need to keep employees safe

Keeping workers safe from injury and assault is both an ethical obligation and an economic priority. Workplace injuries, time off to recover, and deaths cost companies a tremendous amount of time and money.

Competitive solutions for monitoring worker safety are incomplete or have usability issues. They rely on being tethered to a smartphone, can’t plug into a security response network, and don’t allow remote monitoring of the workers’ environment in case of an emergency.



RiskBand and Aries: Rapid Emergency Monitoring and Response 

We developed a wearable device that doesn’t need a smartphone to operate, has a long battery life, and communicates directly with the customer’s preferred emergency response provider. At the push of a button, the device transmits near-real-time audio, video, and user location to an emergency response center. It also allows for two-way communication, so that operators can communicate with users. Operators at emergency response providers we work with are trained to listen first, so as to not escalate potentially volatile situations.

Besides providing emergency response, the RiskBand device is a valuable tool for investigations. Our software platform can retain tracking data for up to 15 days. The photos and audio taken are evidentiary-grade. The device uses first-class GPS tracking and cellular location fallback. All GPS data is timestamped.


Strong initial growth, sustained sales during wait for upgrade

*2021 and 2022 numbers are estimates that haven't been reviewed or finalized

Starting from our launch in 2019 until December 2020, we’ve had over $500k in sales. YOY growth from 2019 to 2020 was 521%. Based on our preliminary financials (which have not yet been reviewed or audited by a CPA) we believe our revenues for the 12-month period from March 1,2021 through February 28, 2022 were approximately $584,000 as compared to approximately $557,000 for the trailing 12 months ended February 28, 2021. In Q1 2022 we have already generated approximately $186,000 in revenues from an additional 243 devices, as compared to approximately $45,000 in revenue from 44 devices deployed in Q1 2021.

We plan to continue establishing reseller relationships, and anticipate the RiskBand will have a cumulative contract value of more than $100M within 5 years. Our goal is to sell the device to businesses first, and then to consumers.


Subscriptions, industry resellers, and organic sales

Most of our initial sales are through resellers, including Everbridge, a leading provider of critical event management software, and Interface Security Systems, a national managed service provider for retail businesses.

B2B sales involve “planting seeds” — initial test orders are generally followed by larger commitments once the customer has used the platform and the devices. RiskBand is marketed under a two-year license agreement, with both domestic and international pricing and use case models. Customers pay subscription fees for each device they use.


Supporting the mobile workforce transformation

The U.S. mobile workforce is expected to increase from 78.5 million in 2020 to 93.5 million by 2024. (Source) By the end of 2024, mobile workers are expected to account for nearly 60% of the total U.S. workforce, increasing the market of lone workers. (Source) We believe the ability to provide emergency assistance to mobile workers is going to be part of the new normal as the job market evolves. 



We believe that we have the best usable wearable emergency monitoring and response solution on the market. 

What sets us apart: 

  • Accessibility: We use a graphical user interface that can integrate with a company’s security network and be customized for different use cases. 
  • Portability and autonomy: the device does not depend on a smartphone, is compact, and weighs approximately 5 ounces. 
  • Local development and manufacturing: the device is manufactured in the US, with all our tech developed in-house
  • Turnkey solution: we offer a plug-and-play contract with Garmin’s IERCC (formerly GEOS) for companies that don’t have their own emergency response teams or 3rd-party security providers


A long road of tech and business development, entering a rapid expansion phase

Whereable Technologies has invested millions in developing its scalable software platform, and its unique devices. Bud Mayo, our CEO, hopes to carry us through a Reg A+ offering. Having taken three companies public since 1997, Bud believes that RiskBand devices are going to be increasingly necessary as the size of the lone, mobile and remote workforce continues to grow.  

Now, we are gearing up for a new phase, with strong reseller relationships and an upgraded device that we expect to roll out in Q2 2022. The new 4G-compatible device will have a longer battery life, more precise GPS, full-motion video transmission, and operate further away from cell towers. We believe that many prospective customers have held off on ordering devices until the upgraded device is available.

Once the upgraded device is available, we intend to implement a more robust marketing effort and, in the future, explore entry into the consumer market.

Why is this needed when we have cell phones? My question is under the assumption that the users phone doesn't die. Also, why is this needed when organizations have and use pagers/walkies/etc?

" The wearable technology market reached $116.2B in 2021, and is expected to reach $265.4B by 2026." Isn't this statistic rather misleading, since it refers to ALL wearables such as Apple Watch, pedimeters, and devices having absolutely nothing to do with personal safety? What is the estimated market growth for wearable smart safety devices? Do you have anecdotes of publicly reported real case use instances where your technology has saved the day to defuse or neutralize an armed assailant threat for a Family Dollar or other employee working alone by summoning help and transmitting threat assessment images of the emergency, confrontation, or perpetrator to first responders ahead of their arrival? What distinguishes your proprietary technology from Life Alert and its genre of wristband or lanyard wearable?

Hi, I see you mention that your system is "proprietary", but do you have any patents awarded and/or submitted? Thanks. Blessings

I like this idea. Who are your current customers that are using this technology? Are there markets that you want to break into that don't yet know they need your technology?




Cancel anytime before 48 hours before a rolling close or the offering end date.



We want you to succeed and get the most out of your money by offering rewards and memberships!


Your info is your info. We take pride in keeping it that way!


Invest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
