AWS & Responder Corp Announce the Launch of ResponderXLabs 

August 7, 2018

ResponderXLabs is an innovation program that brings industry together to enable cutting-edge technology and empower first responders

LAS VEGAS, NV – Technology has long been mission critical for public safety. However, today, more than ever, agencies are turning to innovation to help solve increasingly complex challenges. ResponderXLabs was built to support the growing importance of technology for public safety. By bringing together industry, the Program provides enablement resources to entrepreneurs to give cutting-edge technology an easier path to market and first responders better access to the solutions they need.  


In order to align incentives, and meet the needs of a diverse ecosystem, Participants in the Program are divided into three components; entrepreneurs, public safety agencies and industry.  

For Entrepreneurs

The Program gives entrepreneurs resources to overcome and excel through the unique challenges faced in the public safety industry. “Far too often we see top technology avoid or exit the public safety industry due to inefficiencies and barriers. ResponderXLabs helps the entrepreneurs behind those technologies better navigate the path to market in public safety.” Said Bryce Stirton, Responder Corp Co-Founder & President and ResponderXLabs Board Member. “We’ve brought industry together to build a clear path for entrepreneurs to commercialize their solutions in the rapidly growing public safety technology market.”  

For Agencies

The Program provides public safety agencies with support to pinpoint technology needs, identify solutions, streamline adoption and enable a successful deployment. “As an active deputy, I see first hand the technology deficiencies first responders overcome on a daily basis”, said Nathanial Wish, Responder Corp Co-Founder & CEO and ResponderXLabs Board Member.  “As an active investor in the industry, I see first hand the inefficiencies in the innovation cycle that keeps that needed technology out of the field. ResponderXLabs is bringing industry together in a way that aligns incentives, so we can eliminate the inefficiencies and focus on delivering the best solutions to support first responders.” 

For Industry

The Program provides industry leaders with curated access and opportunities to leverage cutting-edge technology. “ResponderXLabs provides a new mechanism for established companies to partner with startups and public safety agencies to incubate, validate and scale innovation in the public safety market – creating a funnel of opportunity for the enterprises that embrace it”, says Dustin Haisler, Chief Innovation Officer for e.Republic & ResponderXLabs Board Member.
