AvaTech is a really cool enterprise that focuses on avalanche safety. The attempt is to create proactive rather than reactive systems in order to reduce fatality rates. The goal isn't merely to save and find those impacted by an avalanche but also make it so that humans are avoiding avalanches as a whole.
"As entrepreneurs from MIT with a deep passion for backcountry skiing and mountaineering, an advisory board and an expanded team with years of industry experience, we are leveraging the best technologies available and developing new innovations to create a smarter, safer backcountry," they write on their about page.
Some may not consider AvaTech to be a traditional social enterprise and, well, that's exactly why we featured them. Not all social businesses make impacts in the same way and we look forward to seeing more of this kind of innovative company design.
