January 26, 2016 – Sentinel Alert (St. John’s, N.L.)—a provider of sensor-based safety software that aims to reduce worker accidents—says it has closed $525,000 in seed round financing.

Today’s investment came from Pelorus Venture Capital ($250,000), which manages Venture Newfoundland & Labrador; equity investment firm Killick Capital; and a private angel investor.

“We want to use technology to help make people’s lives better at work, and Pelorus Venture Capital and Killick Capital both support that mission,” said Sarah Murphy, Sentinel Alert co-founder and CEO. “Their investment and expertise in our target industries will allow us to grow our staff and operations throughout Canada and the U.S. over the next year.”
