Communitech Rev Launches Third Cohort of Sales-Focused Accelerator

WATERLOO, ON--(Marketwired - February 01, 2016) - Communitech Rev is pleased to welcome four new companies to the sales accelerator. They are:

  • Dozr, whose equipment-sharing platform connects construction equipment renters with lenders.
  • Alaunus, a mobile IT platform bringing outdated and inefficient processes in healthcare into the 21st century.
  • CloudWifi, who creates fast and reliable cloud-managed Wifi network services for businesses and consumers.
  • BitHound, who helps software developers build reliable code.

The startups were selected for the program -- which takes no equity from the companies -- based on their current sales and overall market opportunity. They will be held accountable to weekly goals and work closely with seasoned Embedded Executives to focus on product, sales and marketing. The companies are also provided consulting from sponsors Canon and Deloitte.

"I'm keen to get this cohort in house -- they're all very different businesses but each have wonderful market opportunities," said Steve McCartney, vice president of Communitech's Startup Services Group. "They're all at the perfect stage to take advantage of the program, and really drive their sales. It'll be exciting to see what they are able to accomplish."

FunnelCake, BluePoint Technology, TallyFi and Knowledgehook are continuing the next phase of the program, implementing the sales and marketing techniques they learned over the first three months.

"It's important for these companies to understand what a marketing engine and a sales engine look like," said Daryl Sherman, one of the accelerator's Embedded Executives. "We help them to understand how these matter to their success by digging deep into their businesses, and looking at sales and customers in a different way."

Communitech Rev is a revolving six-month program, bringing in new companies every three months. Applications are open for the next cohort, beginning May 1, 2016. For more information and to apply, visit www.communitech.ca/rev.
