2021 Startup Booster Organizations
The Whisper Co.
The Whisper Company (TWC) was born at The University of Texas (UT). Co-Founded by Dr. Benito R. Fernández, a professor of 30+ years with 5 patents, that retired to commercialize these technologies. With financial support from NSF and UT's Center for identity (during his research at UT), and NSF's ICORPS National cohort, and an SBIR Phase I, the market and technologies feasibility have been demonstrated.
TWC is solving the problem of digital information privacy, security, and ownership, that despite all the security advancements to date, it lacks effective authentication of sender and recipient, doesn't prevent visual hacking (shoulder-surfing), and has subpar privacy, especially when the phone is unlocked. TWC has patented (licensed from UT) and patent-pending (from TWC) disruptive technologies for digital information ownership, and communication privacy and security.
We are focusing on high-trust environments and assets like FinTech, LegalTech, HealTech, Military, and Government.
Headquartered in Austin, Texas, and founded in September 2019. Seeking Seed funding.
