Square 1 Bank, a division of Pacific Western Bank, provided a credit facility to new client LiveSafe, a mobile safety communications platform.

Proceeds from the facility will support sales-related initiatives and expansion.

Based in Arlington, VA, the LiveSafe platform provides actionable crowd-sourced intelligence gathering for security officials of major corporations and educational institutions, to help keep employees and students safe and informed.

“Square 1 continues to support and understand early-stage companies, specifically SaaS-based technology platforms,” said Carolyn Parent, CEO of LiveSafe. “The Square 1 team’s efficiency in learning our business, our key metrics and our core drivers made for a smooth process from first meeting to a tailored LOI and a successful closing. We look forward to having Square 1 on the journey with LiveSafe to create safer communities, greater communication and enhanced awareness.”

“Security teams and law enforcement officials recognize that preventing incidents is far more valuable than simply responding when problems occur,” said Kevin Johnson, managing director of Square 1’s Mid-Atlantic region. “LiveSafe empowers individuals to report anything from maintenance requests to suspicious behavior in real-time from mobile devices. We are excited to support the LiveSafe platform and the team’s commitment to creating safer communities.”
