As uninvited guests on these lands, we acknowledge our privilege and the unjust benefits we've gained from systems of citizenship and colonization. We are grateful to the Indigenous, First Nations, Metis & Inuit, LGBTQ2SIA, BIPOC, Latinx, PWUD, Differently Abled, Neurodiverse, and unacceptably housed communities for their leadership, teaching, and patience in helping us unlearn ignorance, bias, and intolerance. We strive daily for an equitable world with people’s sovereignty, autonomy, and dignity are embedded in every aspect of our organization. 

About Us

Brave Technology Co-op's mission is to end drug-related deaths.

We build technology deeply rooted in community values. Brave may be a tech company, but we're not a conventional one. Several unique qualities set us apart:

Harm Reduction Philosophy 

Harm reduction permeates everything we do. We believe in the agency, rights, and dignity of people at risk of drug-related death, which informs not just what we create, but how we create it. Each of our products is co-designed with PWUD to ensure overdose detection is accessible to those most at risk.

Economic Justice and Community Accountability 

We're founded on principles of economic justice and accountability, which is why we operate as a multi-stakeholder cooperative. The problem we're solving is bigger than any one of us can tackle alone. We believe credit belongs to those who do the work, use our tools, and provide financial support.

Where we are located

Our work spans Turtle Island, with headquarters on the unceded, stolen, ancestral territories of the Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. 

What we do

We're building a future where drug-related deaths, driven by social isolation, are eradicated.
