Coastal Risk is a flood and natural hazard risk assessment technology company. Our mission is to help individuals, businesses and governments in the US and around the world achieve resilience and sustainability.
In the past year, Coastal Risk’s Technology supported nearly $2 billion in US commercial real estate investment and development. Coastal Risk’s unique business model combines high-tech, flood, climate and natural hazards risk assessments and high-value, risk communication reports with personalized, resilience-accelerating advice for individuals, corporations and governments. Our risk modeling and reports help save lives and property in the US. In order to take our system around the world, however, we need higher resolution DEMs. The 30m resolution currently available is a big obstacle to going international. This is something that we would like to get from NASA. Also, we are interested in high-resolution, “before-and-after” satellite imagery of flooded areas to compare with our modeling and to help individuals, businesses and governments understand how to better defend against floods.
