Company Overview

Technosylva is a rapidly growing SaaS company and the industry leader in wildfire operational support and risk analytics. Technosylva exists to reduce the impact of wildfires by providing proactive and actionable intelligence. We provide wildfire risk mitigation software solutions for some of the nation’s largest Investor Owned Utility (IOU) companies, wildfire agencies, and other organizations. Technosylva's suite of wildfire risk analysis products are specifically tailored to meet the needs of electric utilities and government agencies, but are quickly finding traction with an expanding marketplace that will include transmission operators, insurance, and others. We enhance operational and mitigation decision-making with proactive risk forecasting, on-demand fire spread predictions, proprietary weather science, asset hardening analysis, and strengthen regulatory compliance & reporting efforts.

Technosylva has offices in La Jolla, CA, and León, Spain. The company has been providing critical solutions for the past 26 years; however, the organization has been on a journey of transformation and rapid growth over the past 3 years, scaling to about 130 employees and providing its product offerings in over 10+ countries. TA Associates, a leading growth PE firm, recently made a significant investment in Technosylva to amplify the company’s mission and continued growth trajectory.
