The Startup Success Podcast

This week Bob and Patrick talk with Shawna Pandya, Co-Founder of CiviGuard. What if your smartphone could save your life in a disaster? That’s the ambitious and laudable goal of CiviGuard, a startup getting traction disrupting the established limits of how technology, governments, disasters and survivors interact.

Disasters happen – yet the fundamental technologies public agencies use in emergencies hasn’t changed in a substantial way in 20+ years. How can a city use mobile technology to save lives? If you’ve ever lived through a major earthquake, hurricane, tornado, or terrorist attack, this is an interview you don’t want to miss.

And a quick word about our new sponsor, InfluAds. If your startup’s market is other startups, web developers and designers why not reach out to them through with a small, tasteful ad at sites they already read? That’s how InfulAds works. Act now, mention “SSP” and save 20% on you first ad buy. InfluAds.com – ads for startups by a Startup.

We’d also like to thank Microsoft WebsiteSpark for being our first official show sponsor! Microsoft WebsiteSpark and StartupToDo.com have free Microsoft software for designers and a six month scholarship to StartupToDo.com you may be interested in.
