Increasing Earthquake Resilience
Earthquakes affect almost 1/3 of the world’s population and are more destructive than all other natural disasters combined.
Grillo is a social enterprise helping people living in vulnerable areas by providing early-warnings and sharing technology and data.
What We Do
We speak to local seismologists and engineers to ensure good regional knowledge and obtain buy-in for the project’s longevity.
Having determined the optimum locations, the nodes are installed and configured. Locations are carefully chosen with help from the community.
Grillo has founded OpenEEW in partnership with IBM and the Linux Foundation to allow communities to build their own earthquake early-warning system. Anyone can deploy or contribute to this open source toolset, which includes the core components from the Grillo EEW.
Grillo enters USAID Development Innovation Ventures and develops its core technologies.
Data on AWS
Over 1TB of data from Grillo’s EEW is open sourced and shared on the AWS Open Data program.
Call for Code
Grillo joins IBM’s Call for Code program that allows open sourcing of its key technologies.
The Linux Foundation hosts the OpenEEW project, promoting it globally
Clinton Global Initiative
Creating partnerships to deploy an open source EEW in Puerto Rico.

Case Study: Mexico
Following the devastating 2017 earthquakes in Mexico, USAID and Roddenberry Foundation supported Grillo in the creation of a new Mexican earthquake early-warning system with 50 sensors.
The system has to date provided over 1000 alerts and is being used by 12,000+ users via phone app, home device and school loudspeakers.
