BOCA RATON, Fla.-- October 6, 2011 -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- MobileHelp™ is relocating its headquarters to the Research Park at Florida Atlantic University signing a lease to occupy 13,000 square feet with move-in planned for early November.
MobileHelp (www.mobilehelpnow.com) uses state of the art technology to provide seamless tracking and two-way communicating medical alarm protection to seniors. The company has grown to 40 employees as strong sales performance of their “anywhere help button” personal emergency response system has bolstered the company’s rapid growth. In addition to headquarters and sales, the Research Park location will house the company’s ongoing product research, development, fulfillment, and technical support activities.
“We selected the Research Park because of its synergy with FAU,” said Scott Adams, Chairman of MobileHelp. “The Park’s high tech focus puts us right in the middle of a hotbed of talented companies and resources not available anywhere else in the area. We are eager to work with FAU faculty on joint development projects, and we’re planning to establish a formal internship program for FAU students that will identify candidates who can become full time employees upon graduation.”
Andrew Duffell, president and CEO of the Research Park at Florida Atlantic University, has seen significant growth in the Park from technology companies. “Tenants in the Research Park find our unique relationship with FAU to be a distinct advantage,” said Duffell. “In addition to being the only established university research park in South Florida, we also have a high concentration of on-site investment capital and business infrastructure organizations.”
