Meet Kwema | Geospatial Arch Grants Series
December 9, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The 2020 Arch Grants cohort included a strategic and unprecedented element. In an effort to continue to build upon St. Louis’ geospatial revolution, 5 of their transformative $50,000 equity-free grants & pro-bono resources were awarded specifically to geospatial startups. Partnering with T-REX’s new Geospatial Innovation Center, these 5 geospatial startups have also been awarded incubator space for the duration of their grant, embedding them within our growing geospatial ecosystem. Each month through this virtual event series, you’ll get the opportunity to get to know the 2020 geospatial Arch Grants cohort and newest T-REX community members.
This month, T-REX’s Mark Tatgenhorst will introduce & host an open conversation with Ali Al-Jabry, CEO of Kwema.

Each workday, 7,000 U.S. employees experience an emergency at work and unfortunately some of them result in a death. The time it takes for them to notify they are in danger and for them to get the right help is the biggest factor in these life threatening situations. Kwema bridges this gap and saves lives. Kwema mitigates the safety risks that employees face by providing no behavior change wearables that effectively addresses with three main use cases: 1.Quick notification to the right emergency personnel in life-threatening situations buying time. 2.Seamless Contact Tracing at the workplace respecting GDPR & HIPAA Laws to mitigate Covid-19 Spread. 3.Easily track employee location and automate Safe Zone Roll Call during Mass Evacuations at facilities. Kwema’s technology is designed to avoid adoption hurdles and training costs by being placed in something employees already wear. For example, Kwema’s Patent Pending smart employee badge holder.
