Up First

The coronavirus outbreak reveals an urgent need for passenger screening tech that can mitigate the impact of global crises and support the travel industry’s ability to adapt safely and swiftly. Airlines, airports, cruise lines, sports venues, and governments are seeking emerging technology to enhance passenger screening security, safety, and speed.

We’ll work with 
you to:
  • 1. Understand emerging technology and security trends in the trade and travel industries, with a focus on passenger screening and safety
  • 2. Identify opportunities and use cases for your tech, based on the needs and requirements of major multinationals and governments
  • 3. Develop effective go-to-market strategies based on dozens of 1-1 meetings and group networking with the world’s leading companies to jump-start your business development and prototyping
  • 4. Build a coalition of proven go-to-market partners that complement your technology and allow you to provide a more holistic solution to global safety and security challenges
  • 5. Drastically reduce your time to revenue and mission impact
