Evolv Technology, a 7-year-old maker of sensors and software aimed at detecting weapons or other threats concealed on people, is adding another high-profile investor as its CEO switches to a more technical role within the company.
The Waltham-based company announced on Wednesday $30 million in a new funding round led by former Florida Governor Jeb Bushs firm, Finback Investment Partners. Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) Co-Founder Bill Gates, is a returning investor in the Series C round.
Jeb and his group fully understood the opportunity here, said Peter George, the companys newly-promoted CEO. As the former governor in Florida, where there have been a lot of unfortunately shootings, including the Parkland school shooting, hes well aware of the active shooter (situation), and wanted to make
schools and venues safer.

what’s in it for Jeb? More guacamole ?
> whats in it for Jeb? <
Hes probably doing it for the applause.
So please clap.
Jeb saying he wants to ‘make schools safer’ makes me wonder what that really means to him. By doing what, Jeb?
Slowly whittling away at the Second Amendment?
Jeb tends to support World View approaches.
Wasn’t he firmly behind Common Core, inspite of evidence that it was not helping students learn more quickly?
They’re globalists and they hate you. You are a serf.
I see plenty of government contracts in their future!
So...did Bush and Gates leave THEIR ARMED PROTECTION at home????
What venues? Other soft targets?
Why I can see it now. Some punk with a gun starts killing kindergarten and 1st graders. Meanwhile in the unarmed principles office.....
I don’t think i will sit around waiting for low energy Jeb to protect families life.
The places that can afford it, aren't likely targets.
“Theyre globalists and they hate you. You are a serf.”
EXACTLY. America is their playtoy. The Bill of Rights is their toilet paper. Their rights...your bil.l
Pay up. Don’t be late. I owe my soul to the CRIMINAL STATE.
The Bush family has done more damage to this country than even the Kenyan from Indonesia.

The government will force the taxpayer to pay a fortune for this system, whether it works or not, and put it in the schools.
Are they trying to be able to identify legal concealed carry individuals?
We already have sensors at public events.
Tippy Toes....where you get all that dough?
I’d not agree with that.....but you can’t and I can’t prove it.
So, my lead-lined jockstrap is a no-no?
