Life Balance Technologies is an Austin-based startup that helps hospitals and commercial landlords reduce airborne infection risk within their buildings. It is a huge job, but we aren’t a huge, faceless corporation. Our small team works smarter, not harder by incorporating a patented software program to better map and report infection control conditions.
Life Balance Technologies was founded by Corey Kilpack and Steven Manz, two longtime friends who saw that the old methods of maintaining air quality and infection control compliance were not enough. They combined their backgrounds in auditing, modeling, and infection control to develop the Life Balance software—and just in time. In 2020, the world realized something that Steve and Corey had been tracking for years—airborne diseases can devastate families, cities, and even whole countries, and we need to be prepared.
Here is a little more about their stories.
While working in the HVAC industry—specifically testing and balancing services for hospitals— Corey became disgruntled with the current reporting processes and systems. He developed his own infection control model that met the demanding needs of building engineers, but was tailored for the Infection Control Officers of hospitals. This model became the basis for Life Balance’s patented software, which overlays reports onto the Life Safety Maps that are common to every public building for better testing and reporting.
Corey and Kellee Kilpack live in Petaluma, California. They have seven children and five grandchildren. Corey thrives in the pastures and barns with his vintage Lamborghini tractors and his tool boxes. He has been testing and reporting infection control conditions in hospitals for 13 years.
Steve was the chief financial officer at multiple oilfield service companies and spent several years managing drilling technology companies prior to co-founding Life Balance. When the oil and gas industry took a nose-dive, Steve got serious about understanding the latest trends in data science and artificial intelligence applications, and even started learning how to write code. Steve understood the value of Corey’s approach, even before the COVID-19 pandemic, and partnered with him to create Life Balance Technologies.
Steve and Kristen Manz live in the Houston area and have three children. Steve plays golf regularly with one new knee and one old knee. He is also active in several local and international ministries and spends a few hours a week in a local yoga studio.
