The Tech Tribune staff considered several factors when selecting “Best Tech Startups in Santa Barbara” candidates including revenue potential, leadership team, brand and product traction, and competitive landscape. To be considered for this list, all candidate companies must be privately owned, less than 10 years in existence and have received at least one round of funding.
“We are really excited to be chosen as the best technology startup in Santa Barbara this year,” said Mike Muench, CEO of Seek Thermal. “Santa Barbara is the global hub for thermal imaging innovation and we are proud to be recognized by The Tech Tribune for our emerging status in this dynamic industry. This award is a tribute to the efforts and hard work of our team.”
Thermal Imaging cameras detect infrared light (heat) and display it as an image otherwise invisible to the naked eye. The technology aids in visual perception and awareness to help first responders save lives, building professionals work more efficiently, and drivers operate vehicles safer.
Within the last six months, Seek Thermal has achieved two significant milestones. The first is the introduction of Seek Shot™ and Seek ShotPRO™ - two powerful handheld thermal cameras built for commercial trade professionals. The second is when the company partnered with the Los Angeles Fire Department this past March to outfit every firefighting position with a thermal imaging camera, the Reveal FirePRO™.
Seek Thermal imaging cameras are designed and manufactured in Santa Barbara. For more information on how Seek Thermal serves professionals in a variety of different industries, visit: thermal.com.
