What Problem are we Solving?
Para™ began in January 2015 with two friends talking about family preparedness. As software and database developers, we quickly realized there are no quality emergency preparedness or self-reliance apps that can simplify how we become and stay prepared. We found other’s passionate about filling this void to better helping others. We came together, pulled from each of our talents, and created Para™. This became our goal and mantra: “Prepare Today Thrive Tomorrow”. From concept to implementation, we want to change the way people think, plan, and do preparedness.
Here at Para™, we are hard at working making and improving the tools you need to get and keep yourself prepared. The whole purpose of our app is to simplify the preparedness process. Many feel lost not knowing where to start, or overwhelmed by everything to do and track. So, everything we do is focused on how we can make it easy and trouble-free. This is our mission.
Our Call to Action!
Look, we never know what tomorrow will hold; it’s always a question mark. Preparing for the unknown is not only important for the future, it also gives us peace of mind. Technology has simplified much of our lives. Why shouldn’t it simplify preparation as well?! We think we have an awesome app for you to use to get prepared. Our goal is simple. We feel if we can simplify preparedness, more people will become preparedness-minded. This is our passion and we are working hard, listening to feedback, and constantly improving the app, for you.
Spread the and share us with those you love that may need a little help.
