November 1, 2023Client News

Gunderson Dettmer represented client Prepared, a public safety platform, in its $16 million Series A financing led by Andreessen Horowitz. Prepared is a leading provider of mission-critical multimedia and text to public safety agencies. The company’s flagship product, Prepared Live, enables emergency professionals to access real-time data from the scene, driving more efficient, effective and safe responses.

Prepared will use the new capital to expand its team, specifically in engineering, marketing, sales and product.

In the announcement of the transaction, Prepared CEO Michael Chime said, "Software has advanced tremendously, transforming nearly every part of our lives. Yet, for our nation's first responders, their tools have remained largely unchanged for decades. These exceptional public servants sacrifice everything to protect us but are constrained by antiquated technology. At Prepared, we envision a future where responders finally have access to solutions that are as relentless as their service. Making that vision a reality is our purpose.”

The Gunderson Dettmer deal team was led by Michael Hacker and included Kelly Flanagan and Jordana Douglas.
