Safety: a digital future
The Safety Accelerator collaborates with companies in critical infrastructure industries, solving their most pressing safety and risk challenges by applying digital startup solutions. Our aim is to make the world a safer place, by encouraging the growth of the safetytech industry globally and accelerating the adoption of digital technology for safety.
The Safety Accelerator is a joint initiative between Lloyd's Register Foundation, a charitable foundation helping to protect life and property by supporting engineering-related education, public engagement and the application of research, and Lloyd's Register, one of the world's leading providers of professional services for engineering and technology, and run in partnership with Plug and Play Tech Centre, the largest global innovation platform and most active venture capital fund in Silicon Valley.
