On November 16, Quiet Professionals received the 2021 Tampa Bay Inno Fire Award for our innovative humanitarian efforts in Afghanistan. The subject of the award is Quiet Professionals’ high-tech Project Afghan Relief Fund dashboard and tracker, built to help evacuate U.S. citizens and Afghan allies during the chaos of the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan in August 2021.
The dashboard is based on our flagship commercial product, Cerebra Grey. Cerebra Grey combines the power of Esri’s ArcGIS geospatial technology with multiple sources of data to map and coordinate people, resources, and obstacles in real time. The innovative dashboard allowed the coordination of assistance for thousands of refugees and U.S. citizens. We brought together help from around the world, connecting AMCITS and SIVS in need with NGOs, non-profits, and Government Agencies working to safely and securely evacuate those left behind.
Quiet Professionals was chosen by a panel of esteemed community judges who picked one innovator from each category. The awards celebrated trailblazing businesses that made significant impact in the Tampa business community through partnerships, software, financial technology, and more.
