Second Communitech Rev Cohort Launches

Communitech Rev has selected four startups for the second cohort of its revenue-focused accelerator, as the program moves to a more-frequent admissions schedule and boosts its mentorship capacity with dedicated Executives-in-Residence.

The four new companies, which have taken up residence in the Rev space in the Communitech Hub, are:

  • BluePoint Technology, whose wireless router, called Kindera, allows parents to supervise their children’s home Internet usage from their smartphones via an easy-to-use web service. Kindera connects directly to an existing home router, and the web interface allows parents to access the system from wherever they are.
  • Knowledgehook, a cloud-based math software that helps teachers and school boards enhance two of the most well-researched ways of improving student outcomes: increasing student engagement with the material, and helping teachers implement a strong formative assessment process.
  • FunnelCake, which helps B2B marketing teams understand their buyers’ journey from awareness to purchase. Marketers get insights into marketing influence across their entire funnel. By aggregating data from existing sales and marketing apps, like Google Analytics, Twitter, HubSpot, and Salesforce, FunnelCake helps marketers make decisions faster, prove ROI for marketing activities, and accelerate deal velocity by improving conversions at each stage of the funnel.
  • TallyFi, which builds a high-tech replacement for the mechanical counter used to count people at nightclubs, festivals and events. Its purpose-built hardware is used by security staff and provides real-time statistics of entrances and exits, along with time-stamped logging and deep analysis of past data.

Rev, which launched in March of this year, originally pledged to take in up to 10 companies every six months, which aligned with its six-month program to help companies to scale revenue. Under the new approach, the Rev program will remain six months long and take in the same overall number of companies, but bring in smaller cohorts more often – up to five companies every three months – so that the groups overlap.
