Lifeguard Health Networks

Touched by our own difficult experiences as patients and caregivers, struggling to manage and coordinate care within our healthcare system, the Guttman Initiatives team was compelled to be a part of the solution to make healthcare easier and more manageable. Joining with visionaries and leaders in the technology industry, who also were motivated by personal health struggles, the team set forth collectively, to build and make available to the public a first of its kind, fully Integrated Care Network… Learn More

Multifamily Housing Initiatives

Each and every one of us has been affected in some way, by the changing economy. Of particular note are current delocalization trends, wherein the workforce is moving further and further from their work destination and communities are becoming notably less diversified. There are broad and far-reaching consequences for both the displaced workforce as well as the communities which they serve. Working with leaders in the mixed-income multifamily industry, the Guttman Initiatives team has inspired dedication to build value and opportunities to insure these model communities flourish … Learn More

The Asilomar Conference

For more than several decades, the scientific community has been warning that we must study climate intervention (geoengineering) in order to understand the “in case of emergency” options that could be relied upon, if we hit a “catastrophic climate tipping point. When the Guttman Initiatives team was approached to back this research, it became clear that this field of climate intervention experimentation was alarmingly unregulated. Building a collaboration with world leaders in science, environment, and politics, we set forth to cultivate oversight to protect both environment and research… Learn More

AmberWatch Mobile

Every every parent lives in fear the possibility of their child’s disappearance. In the United States, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children reports that every 40 a child becomes missing or abducted. With the rise of GPS- enabled smartphones came a 21st century option to dramatically improve child safety and reduce parent stress. Side by side with Qualcomm, Guttman Initiatives set forth to unite, otherwise competing telecommunications companies, to join in the first telecommunications Industry Integrated Initiative for Child Safety… Learn More

Here are some of the amazing companies, non-profits, and institutions that we have had the pleasure of working with.

“The Asilomar Conference was one of the most carefully prepared, sensitively organized, and successful international conferences that I’ve participated in during a diplomatic, and post-diplomatic, career spanning nearly 50 years.”

Richard E. Benedick,
Ambassador, ret.,President of the National Council for Science and the Environment

“I came [to the Asilomar Conference] expecting to find a bunch of engineers proposing to engineer the planet a la Edward Teller. Instead, I found a conversation in which the word ‘humility’ appeared on their viewgraphs. I am leaving here with a much different impression of what geoengineers want to do.”

Paul Craig,
Sierra Club

“I feel that [the Asilomar Conference] was a historic, important and necessary first step towards a broader global dialogue on geoengineering research. Simply gathering together such a collection of experts was no small feat, and the conference statement, which emphasized the need for transparency and humility and was agreed by the majority of participants, was an achievement beyond what many participants thought possible.”

Andy Parker,
Senior Policy Adviser, Royal Society

“Through [the collaboration of Guttman Initiatives], a highly important scientific conference could be held to deal with a critical environmental problem, what to do if humankind cannot soon control the emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. So far humankind has not been able to do so. In that case, remedial measures must be introduced. This creates in turn major international problems, which have to be addressed by natural and social scientists, the general public and the political world.”

Dr. Paul Crutzen,
Nobel Prize Winner Max Planck Institute, Germany,
and Scripps Institution of Oceanography, CA.

“A collaboration of this kind has never happened in this industry before”

Paul E. Jacobs,
QualComm CEO

“The Lifeguard Health Network system shows amazing promise as a user friendly agile system that frees patients and caregivers while improving healthcare”
