Praetorian Group Announces Launch of New Development Division, PG Labs
New division of company aims to accelerate technology innovation in media, public safety and security
San Francisco, CA – The Praetorian Group, Inc., the leading safety and security online media company, today announced the formal launch of PG Labs, a new division aimed at developing new media, mobile technology and social media solutions that are designed to enhance public safety and security worldwide.
As the innovation arm of Praetorian Group, PG Labs will tap into Praetorian’s deep network of resources and industry expertise to help entrepreneurs in a variety of ways, including providing operating capital, strategic direction, technology resources and marketing support. As part of the PG Labs development process, Praetorian will identify founders seeking to create meaningful advancements using technology and online media to help solve complex problems in the public safety, security and defense market.
With properties such as PoliceOne.com, FireRescue1.com and EMS1.com, Praetorian Group has become a leading online publisher and maintains a unique understanding of the current challenges public safety and security professionals face. Praetorian’s extensive base of resources and experience bringing the latest online technology to the public safety market provides significant value for select entrepreneurs looking to accelerate product development and commercialization.
“Technology is moving much faster than most governments can keep up with and the private sector bears a responsibility to help further entrepreneurial efforts that impact public safety,” said Alex Ford, CEO of Praetorian Group. “PG Labs is proud to support this next level of innovation and welcomes entrepreneurs looking to make a positive impact on safety and security not only domestically, but worldwide.”
Prior to the formal establishment of PG Labs, Praetorian Group has supported and launched a number of external companies. Most recently, the company helped launch Tactical Republic, which provides a CPC and lead generation advertising platform for companies, publishers and enthusiasts in the tactical and outdoor markets.
PG Labs will be soliciting ideas from both within and outside of its existing audience base and a select steering committee within Praetorian Group will evaluate applications and approve submissions on an ongoing basis. PG Labs will also be enlisting support and guidance from leading experts within the public safety and security markets to identify new technologies and business ideas. Those interested in submitting an application or learning more about PG Labs should submit an inquiry to PGlabs@PraetorianGroup.com.
