Silent Alert International

**What it does:** provides alert systems to increase the independence of those that are deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-blind or the elderly

**Why it works:** "I was lying in a hotel one night, looking at the fire alarm and thinking that, if it went off, I would never hear it, so I decided to source a product to solve the problem." - *Brian Canon, chief executive, Silent Alert International*
