• About Quadrant 2

    Quadrant 2, Inc. has created software for some of the most recognized brands in the world. Our expertise spans mobile, consumer electronics, robotics, enterprise and machine vision ... always with a creative bent.

    CEO Jason Van Anden invented “I’m Getting Arrested” in 2011 to help Occupy Wall Street demonstrators alert loved ones in the event they were arrested. In 2012 “Stop and Frisk Watch” was created to help the New York Civil Liberties Union document the New York Police Department’s policy of racial profiling.


    Quadrant 2 has continued to innovate the Apptivist space with the “Mobile Justice” series of police video bystander apps released for the ACLU in 2014 following the events in Ferguson, Missouri. These apps have been installed over half a million times by people around the world. The “Bystanders Rule!” technology is in use by numerous organizations, worldwide. Most recently, Quadrant 2 developed “WorkIt”, for United for Respect, a peer to peer expert policy portal built for the 1.3 US million non-unionized Walmart employees.

    Quadrant 2’s applications are well documented in the media, including stories in the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Wired.
