Carr's company, Vita Inclinata, which makes load stability systems, was founded after the tragic death of friend who couldn't be rescued by a helcopter in high winds.

Vita Inclinata founder Caleb Carr won the 2018 Harriet Stephenson Business Plan Competition sponsored by the Albers School of Business and Economics as a law student with his proposal to create a company that would pioneer innovative hardware solutions for daily safety problems encountered in industries such as aerospace and construction. Vita’s first product, the Load Stability System, was created to solve the swinging of helicopter hoisting and sling load systems.

The genesis of the idea was based on a tragedy that occurred in 2009, when Carr watched as a friend died because a helicopter was unable to rescue him due to the swinging of the helicopter hoisting system in windy conditions.
