About Safe Tech

Our Mission - Advance Products and Technologies for First Responders and our Armed Forces

With over a decade of engaging innovative technologies that have empowered public safety and our military, Make Safe Tech Inc., (Safe Tech) is the premier resource to bring military and first responder products to market.

Repeatedly, new companies fail to overcome the challenges of the public safety or defense market before their funds run out. Safe Tech works with corporations, agencies and individual donors who are eager to guide a portfolio of such technologies through the pivotal stages of product development, making them ready for scaling and distribution.

Through agreements with state and local governments, Safe Tech is working to establish Partnership Intermediary Agreements (PIAs) with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Defense (DoD) to bring technologies and companies that strengthen public safety and our military from around the country to the Brazos Valley

Safe Tech Services

At Safe Tech, we guide a portfolio of public safety technologies through the pivotal stages of product development.

Technology Development

In order to mitigate risk and maximize value, Safe Tech will utilize Trusted Service Providers (TSPs) to provide technology companies access to resources with strategic connections and access to the public safety and defense markets.
Technical teams often approach fundraising with 50% or more of their raise dedicated to marketing and sales, regardless of the limited experience they have in selecting where and how to spend marketing funds.
Utilizing the nation’s leading public safety agencies and corporations will enhance the value of resources provided to technologies through Safe Tech. Services may include marketing, engineering, packaging, prototyping, manufacturing, distribution and market introduction.
Safe Tech will target corporate partners that are willing to provide both financial and service commitments to member companies.

Competitive Events

Safe Tech is the premier resource for technologies enhancing public safety, first responders and defense.
We will prioritize technology and grant distribution through participating, sponsoring and hosting competitive events. Safe Tech will provide a charitable entity on the Under Fire | Response Innovation Showdown, allowing Under Fire sponsors to contribute with tax benefits. Safe Tech will evaluate Under Fire, Defense to Response and other events to ensure the portfolio is diverse and filled with technologies that are selected by the nation’s first responders.

Co-Working and Maker Space

Safe Tech operates a Maker Space in College Station, Texas which is available to the community and attracts public safety innovators from around the world. A Safe Tech membership allows individuals, startups, and organizations to use this space. Additionally, the Maker Space may provide tax benefits for equipment donations. Using partnerships with co-working spaces throughout the Brazos Valley, Safe Tech encourages the development of an innovation ecosystem where all business and technology incubators have access to a Maker Space.

At Safe Tech, We Give Back
