This week's RVI meeting (Wednesday 6/21, 5:00pm, offices of TechSpring) included three presentations to see if we are interested in starting due diligence:
- uConnect - a career services marketing platform that helps colleges and universities make career education a bigger part of the campus culture and, more importantly, helps schools make career ready students. UMass Amherst was uConnect's first pilot campus in 2013, and they now have 30+ colleges and universities on the platform as paying customers. This is a Boston-area startup.
- Wyebot - cloud-enabled SaaS utilizes behavioral profiling and machine learning to optimize the performance and security of wireless networks. This company presented at the last ACA Regional event, and is in syndication led by TiE Angels Boston.
- Streamliners - sells aerodynamic devices to the trucking industry, saving $4,000/truck per year in fuel costs, paying for itself in 3 months. This company is based in Hampden, and was a Valley Venture Mentors 2017 Accelerator finalist.
