About

The world needs resilient systems — we’re going to help build them

Mission: we’re working to make disasters less disastrous


Journey

CEO Ahmad Wani survived being marooned during the catastrophic Kashmir flood of 2014 for seven days, wondering whether he would live or die. That was when he decided to dedicate himself to building long-term resilience to natural disasters. While at Stanford University, Ahmad met AI engineer Nicole Hu and earthquake scientist Tim Frank, and together they channeled their collective passion into figuring out how to apply data science and machine learning to some of the greatest challenges our world faces today - natural disasters and climate change.
