Cape Town-headquartered venture capital (VC) firm HAVAÍC has announced a further investment in RapidDeploy following its participation in a bridge round in October last year. The VC firm has bolstered its stake with a second investment as part of RapidDeploy’s Series C equity round.

Founded in 2016, RapidDeploy is the leading cloud-native platform for public safety, delivering next-generation solutions and intelligent mission-critical data to 911 agencies across the United States. Headquartered in Austin, Texas, the Cape Town-born business is helping to reduce response times, enhance situational awareness, and drive better outcomes. RapidDeploy also empowers public safety leaders with data insights that improve emergency response workflows.

Said Steven Raucher, RapidDeploy CEO, “We are thrilled to have the support of HAVAÍC. This investment enables us to continue innovating our suite of Next Generation 911 solutions for the public safety sector. We look forward to building on our success and scaling our mission-critical software to empower 911 agencies, telecommunicators, and first responders, and ultimately, save more lives.”

Over 1,500 911 agencies throughout the United States are leveraging RapidDeploy’s cloud-native products, Radius Mapping and Eclipse Analytics.
